10,000 Boy Scouts and Leaders to Celebrate 100th Anniversary with Campout in Forest Park

Posted on 20 May 2010 by admin

More than 10,000 Boy Scouts and leaders will camp in Forest Park and take part in a wide range of activities on June 4-6, 2010, during ScoutQuest 100, the Greater St. Louis Area Council’s celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America.

Small cities of tents will appear throughout Forest Park beginning at 2 p.m. on Friday, June 4, as Boy Scouts and Venturers—co-ed Scouts ages 14 through 20—from 40 counties in eastern Missouri and southern Illinois set up campsites.  Scouts will visit institutions throughout Forest Park on Friday night.  Robert Mazzuca, Chief Scout Executive of the Boy Scouts of America, will attend a reception for past distinguished service award recipients at the MUNY on Friday evening and spend Saturday morning visiting the activities.
 
On Saturday, Cub Scouts—boys ages 6 through 10—will join the Boy Scouts to attend the event for the day.  Scouts will be able to watch or participate in more than 100 activities.  Scouts can scale a climbing wall, go canoeing, ride a Segway or go fishing.  The general public is invited to view activities on Saturday, including the stage show at 8 p.m. on Art Hill and a fireworks display.  The crowd could grow as large as 20,000 as Scouts, leaders and parents attend the show and fireworks.  Only the National Jamboree, in Virginia this summer, will have more Scouts camping and attending a Scouting event.
 
Scouts will attend religious services on Sunday morning.  The largest will be Roman Catholic Mass at the MUNY with Archbishop Robert Carlson as the celebrant and homilist.
