Boy Scouts Return

Fourty of those scouts returned home to Eau Claire today from the jamboree.
Members of the Chippewa Valley Council say they enjoyed themselves despite the heat and the four men from Alaska who were electrocuted on opening day.
One scout leader says the tradegy actually brought a sense of unity throughout the entire event.
"All the camps were asked to donate patches to the boys from Alaska. They got so many patches they had to tell them stop donating patches. It just brought the best out in everybody in that unfortunate tragedy," said First Assistant Scout Master Denny Marach.
The jamboree lasted ten days which is meant to showcase the skills boy scouts have learned.
The next jamboree will be in five years.
