Scouts on Assignment: Peter Slater's Wrap-Up
THE WRAP-UP: AUGUST 4–AUGUST 7
Overall the Jamboree was a once in a lifetime opportunity that I will not soon forget. I was able to explore all of the wonders of scouting in one place. I wish there had been more time; scouting offers so much that the 10 days of Jamboree just wasn't enough to be able to try everything.
I also had fun touring after the Jamboree. We got to do some educational stuff like visiting Jamestown (America's first settlement) and nearby Yorktown, but we also got to go to some really fun places like a huge water park and the National Aquarium.
Before I finish my assignment as Hometown News Correspondent, I want to thank my parents for not only paying for a majority of this awesome experience but also for allowing me to be gone for so long. I also say a special thank you to Tara Wendell for spending all of her time helping me and editing and publishing my stories. That's the end of the story, Peter Slater signing off.
