Sixteen Hours to Jamboree
Looks like the new National Scouting Center and Jamboree site will be in Fayetteville County, WV. Great news for us in Minnesota - it's just 16 hours away instead of 19 to Ft. AP Hill. :-)

The new site is located on the west side of the New River and bordered by the communities of McCreery to the south, Thurmond to the north, and Mount Hope to the west. It's only 11,000 acres (compared to Philmont's 137,000) but has lots of terrain and location, location, location.

Once the final decisions and paperwork are done, it will be a mad dash to build and prepare in time to open up in 3 years.
