A group of boy scouts returns home Wednesday after the National Jamboree in southern West Virginia.

The Allohak Council Boy Scouts spent ten days at the event that celebrates the true meaning of scouting.

For the first time this year, some female scouts also joined in on the fun.

The National Jamboree is held every four years.

"Some of the best experiences I had were meeting new people, it's a great way and I love the boy scouts," says Aaron Kennon.

"Just all the diversity between all the people in the world and how we can all come together and do the same thing and have fun," added Natalee Cogar.

"I got to do some new merit badges that I didn't know existed before then and I got to meet some people from around the country," replied Alan Kirkpatrick.

This is the first time ever that the National Jamboree was held in West Virginia.

The venue, The Summit in Mount Hope, will now be the event's permanent home.
