BOWLING GREEN, Va. – More than 45,000 Boy Scouts and scoutmasters gathered Saturday evening for the 2010 National Scout Jamboree as the Boy Scouts of America celebrated its 100th anniversary – with technical upgrades such as Wi-Fi.
Over the past week thousands of Scouts trekked from around the world to Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia to take part in the ultimate summer camp.
William D. Boyce, the founder of the Boy Scouts, couldn’t have imagined some of the changes as the organization adjusts to the digital age. Among them is Wi-Fi. Thanks to AT&T, Scouts at the jamboree have unlimited Wi-Fi access and can call home or update their Facebook accounts. Full story.
