Four at national Boy Scout Jamboree

Riley Broding, 15, Clayton Payment, 14, Nicholas Swanz, 13, and Josh King, 15, all of the Princeton area, are attending this year’s National Boy Scout Jamboree in West Virginia.
The jamboree is at the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in Mount Hope, W. Va.
Their 12-day trip began July 12 by taking a jet to Washington, D.C., to tour there for three days, and then taking a bus to West Virginia for the jamboree. Once done with the jamboree they will fly home.
As many as 40,000 Boy Scouts are expected to be at the Jamboree, which will offer high adventure activities including mountain biking, white water rafting, challenge courses and rapelling. Broding’s mother Patrice, says the jamboree site has 17 miles of zip line, a cable with an attachment that a person hangs onto for gliding along the cable.
Forty Boy Scoutsfrom the Central Minnesota Boy Scout District are attending the jamboree, according to Patrice Broding. She says her son will be the senior patrol leader in the group of four from the Princeton area, noting that Riley attended the National Boy Scout Jamboree at the Ft. A.P. Hill military base in West Virginia in 201
