Since 1927 every 2 years, a special Boy Scout jamboree has been held in Cincinnati called Peterloon. In 2010, over 6,000 Scouts from 4 states participated including 27 Scouts from Troop 850.
For Scouts and Adults to participate, complete the permission slip and turn in along with $32 fee per person by October 9th. There are already 9 Webelos from Pack 850 signed up and we would like a large group of Boy Scouts to join them. For Scouts age 14 and up, also complete a waiver form if you want to use the zip line or climbing tower.
