LEAD 24 Sweat Equity


 


INSPIRE EXPLORE


BY JOSEPH GUINTO Sweat, dirt, and smiles. This was the scene in West Virginia at SummitCorps 2011, a summer service project at the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve. Arrowmen—joined by adult volunteers, National Park Service Rangers, and other construction experts—scraped out nearly 13 miles of multiuse trails through nearby forest for future mountain biking and hiking. But they left behind more than just dirt pathways.


30 A New Worldview


BY BRYAN WENDELL Despite sometimes-gloomy international news, more than 40,000 Scouts, Scouters, and staff from 150 different countries united at the 22nd World Scout Jamboree in Rinkaby, Sweden. Nationality, race, background, color—none of it mattered. Youth and adults from across the globe took home a renewed international perspec- tive on Scouting, friendship, and much more.


“Sometimes you see some stories about young people these days that make it easy to give up. But seeing these kids out here makes you believe again.”
