Boy Scouts of America


A Hawaii contingent of 82 Scouts and eight Scout leaders are attending the National Scout Jamboree in Fort A.P. Hill, Va., which began Monday and runs through Wednesday. The Jamboree is held every four years and receives more than 45,000 participants. The first national jamboree was held in Washington, D.C., for 10 days in July 1937. It was attended by 25,000 Scouts, most of whom arrived by train. See the Related Links section, to the left, for past photos and Hawaii Boy Scout Brian Yap's account of the trip by Troops 707 and 708 to the 100th Anniversary National Scout Jamboree in Virginia.
