100 years of Boy Scouts

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- More than 80 Boy Scouts left for the East Coast Saturday to celebrate the 100th anniversary of scouting.

 The Winnebago Council in Northeast Iowa is the biggest group attending the National Boy Scout Jamboree at Fort A.P. Hill.

The five Boy Scout troops will spend several days with 40,000 other scouts. 

"At the Jamboree, there's all kinds of activities from aquatic type of activities… to shooting sports and climbing--just anything you can imagine will be at the Jamboree as far as scouting activities," said Scout Master Belle Cowden.

After the jamboree, the troops will spend a week in Washington D.C. visiting monuments and museums.
