Ten thousand Boy Scouts and their families gathered at E.P. "Tom" Sawyer State Park in Louisville, Ky., this weekend to mark 100 years of scouting. Centennial Jamborees are happening all over the country throughout the year.
Fog filled the valley in the early hours of Saturday, giving way to full sun as the scouts filed in for the opening ceremony, where each group, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venture Crews reiterated their oaths. Among the activities were the traditional Pinewood derby races, various games, nature lessons and merit badges to be earned. Several troops had constructed towers and bridges using nothing but rope and timber.
Glowing balloons filled the evening hours, followed by games in the dark with new friends and old ones.
