A once-in-a-lifetime adventure awaits 90 Boy Scouts and Venture Crew members from western Colorado as they head to West Virginia to gather with approximately 40,000 Scouts for the 2013 National Scout Jamboree at Summit Bechtel Reserve adventure base. Held every four years, the Jamboree runs July 15-24 with Scouts participating in any kind of outdoor adventure you can think of — zip-lining, whitewater rafting, mountain biking, kayaking, skateboarding, hiking, rock climbing, bouldering, shooting, archery, etc.

Before the local Scouts get to West Virginia, they’ll spend four days touring Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.
