Thursday, July 27th, 2023

As the curtains draw to a close on the Boy Scouts of America National Jamboree, Muskingum Valley Council, Troop 4324, can look back on a week filled with unforgettable memories, camaraderie, and personal growth. The scouts of Troop 4324 ended their Jamboree experience with an exhilarating trip down the New River, navigating its rapids and forging bonds that will last a lifetime.

Accompanied by the spirit of unity and excitement, Troop 4324 took on the challenge of the New River with enthusiasm and determination. Three rafts carried them through the rushing waters, presenting both thrilling moments and reflective opportunities. The adventure not only tested their physical capabilities but also brought them closer together as a tightly-knit team.

Throughout the Jamboree, the scouts of Troop 4324 embraced cherished traditions that added to the richness of their experience. They actively participated in the Jamboree tradition of Patch and Pin Trading, where scouts from different troops exchanged patches and hat pins as tokens of friendship and camaraderie. The colorful and diverse patches or pins collected during the Jamboree will serve as cherished mementos of the connections forged with fellow scouts from around the nation.

Senior Patrol Leader Matthew C. expressed his heartfelt sentiments, “I feel this jambo unit came here as strangers and are leaving as some of the best friends that I have ever met. I hope that each one of them achieves great things in their scouting and life career, and I have no problem coming up to any of these great young men and helping them out with anything that they need as an SPL. They were just the troop that I was hoping for and more.”

Troop 4324’s journey at the Jamboree has been marked by a profound sense of camaraderie and the forging of bonds that will endure long after they depart from The Summit Bechtel Reserve. Together, they embraced challenges, encouraged one another, and shared moments of triumph and reflection.

Throughout the Jamboree, the scouts of Troop 4324 have undergone personal growth and development. The experiences they encountered, from earning the NOVA award to engaging in various STEM-related activities, have expanded their horizons and fostered a deeper appreciation for the world of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

As they return home, the scouts will carry with them not only cherished memories but also valuable life lessons that will shape their futures. The Jamboree has undoubtedly left a lasting impact on each individual, instilling values of leadership, determination, and the spirit of adventure.

For Troop 4324, the adventure does not end here. The bonds formed during the Jamboree will serve as a foundation for continued support and friendship within the scouting community. Their shared experiences have solidified their connection as a troop, and the scouts will undoubtedly continue to encourage and uplift one another on their journey to becoming exemplary citizens and leaders.

As they bid farewell to The Summit Bechtel Reserve, the scouts of Troop 4324 carry with them the pride of Muskingum Valley Council and the gratitude of their families and friends back home. They have shown the true spirit of scouting, embodying the principles of preparedness, determination, and the willingness to lend a helping hand.
