PENINSULA: 200 Boy Scouts gather at camporee this weekend

More than 200 Boy Scouts will camp at Salt Creek County Park near Joyce this weekend as part of the annual Mount Olympus District of the Boy Scouts of America Camporee.

Boys from 11 to 18 years old, representing 18 troops from Jefferson and Clallam counties, will demonstrate their skills in everything from tying a knot with one hand to setting a compound fracture.

Nine competitions will be held at the same time, with some boys showing their orientation skills while others lash limbs together to make a “chariot,”‘ said David Leitzinger, district membership chairman.

Registration will take place today at 5 p.m. at the park, 3506 Camp Hayden Road. Competition will start at 9 a.m. Saturday.
