May I Help You Across the Street, Maam?

There are currently 10 active Boy Scout Camps across Virginia. Scouting in Virginia has a long history, from the 1910s to the present day, serving thousands of youth in programs that suit the environment in which they live. Many of the local groups and districts took names of historic Virginia Indian tribes in the state, like Arrohattoc and Mannahoac. Starting in the 1980's through 2010, all of the National Scout Jamborees were held at Ft. A.P. Hill with an average of 32,000 scouts attending. As a consequence, every grandmother in the nearby town of Bowling Green has had at least 10 Scout escorts each time she has crossed a street during a Jamboree.
