Posted: Updated:
Mt HOPE -

Day one of the 2013 National Boy Scout Jamboree kicked off with the boy scouts marching onto the field, plopping down in the grass and cheering on the opening band.
 
A sea of different colored shirts represents  scouts from all over the country.

The 2013 Jamboree is being billed as one of the most physical jamborees in its history!

There's rock climbing, boating and skating.   How do scouts get to these activities?  They walk in the sweltering heat!

Even though the temps are high it has not lowered the spirits of these scouts.
