A Historic Moment What the Summit’s opening in July truly means for Scouting.

IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE that in just a few short weeks, we will open the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve with the launch of our 2013 National Jamboree. As the jamboree’s new permanent home and our fourth national high-adventure base, the Summit makes a bold statement—foretelling a vibrant second century for Scouting. We know how the Summit will offer many new and exciting adventures for

our Scouts: whitewater rafting, kayaking, downhill and cross-country mountain biking, sport shooting and archery, zip lines and rope courses, and world-class rock climbing. And all that is set against the breathtaking backdrop of West Virginia’s beautiful New River Gorge region. It’s an awesome addition to what we already offer at our other three high-adventure bases and more than 500 local camp properties. But the Summit also represents much more. It will stand as a testament to the thousands of supporters across the nation who recognize how Scouting’s values make a difference in the lives of America’s young people. The millions of dollars and goodwill that

have poured into the Summit show how people are passionate about, and supportive of, Scouting today. Our benefactors’ generos- ity demonstrates the significant contributions Scouting has made to their lives and how they want to build a legacy through the Summit for future generations of Scouts. This is the largest property acquisition and

development project we’ve ever taken on to give more opportunities for fun, adventure, and lead- ership to our Scouts. Knowing that this crown

jewel of Scouting will soon be the site of our 2013 National Jamboree, as well as the home of the 2019 World Scout Jamboree, is an exciting vision we can all share and anticipate. I hope that many of your units will be able to make the journey to the

Summit’s grand opening in July to participate in its christening during the 2013 National Jamboree. It will be a historic moment for Scouting that I, and many others, will be proud to attend. For those of you who can’t be there, watch for our Facebook, Twitter, and blog updates. We will bring you the excit- ing moments as they happen!
