The scouts came from all over west Tennessee for the annual “Camporee and Cuboree” weekend.

The event took place at the Tennessee Safari Park in Alamo

Boys between the ages of six and fifteen gathered not only to have fun but to learn discipline and responsibility.

The scouts held a special ceremony tonight to retire an american flag that was over 50 feet long.

Tomorrow the weekend will conclude with a church service followed by an awards ceremony.
