Scouts Prepare for Va. Jamboree, Future W.Va. Site

July 6, 2010

The Boy Scouts of America are celebrating their 100th anniversary later this month with their national jamboree at Fort A.P. Hill, an event they thought would be their last one at the Caroline County Army base.

But that may no longer be the case. The organization had hoped to move the event in 2013 to a site in Glen Jean, W.Va., that will eventually become the National Scout Jamboree's permanent home. But officials say the new site may not be completed in time.

National Scout Jamboree project coordinator Jim Horner says the next jamboree might be held again at A.P. Hill.

Horner still says there's a lot more work to be done at the West Virginia site, including land development.
