The Boy Scouts are on their way!
The Boy Scouts of America have made a HUGE investment in Fayette County, West Virginia but more importantly in their own future.
They have purchased more than 10,000 acres of the New River Gorge and are turning it into the next, best thing. 10,000 acres!
We (Fayette County and West Virginia) look forward to hosting the National Jamboree in 2013. And again, every 4 years after that. Each time, bringing 200,000 to 300,000 visitors to our area.
If that weren’t enough to be excited about, consider we could possibly play host to the World Jamboree in 2017. All of this, in addition to my favorite part, High Adventure Camp!
Every High Adventure Camp will bring kids from all around to experience all the “Wild and Wonderful” they can handle!
This is huge! Can you tell I am excited it?
Know what else is huge? The machines being used to move earth.
Check out this video showing the care being taken to offset some of the major earth moving required to get ready for a quarter of a million people.
We welcome The Boy Scouts to Fayette County and look forward to helping make this huge project a huge success.
P.S. My Grampa B would have loved this.
