Scouts, and Venturers experienced camping and lots of
fun activities with Scouts from all over Washington,
Oregon and British Columbia, and even as far away as
Texas & Utah!

Site Prep at WashJam!
Members of Troop 48 from Olympia, WA began

twin hourglass towers, that formed the official
gateway for WashJam 2012. Suspended between
the two towers were three 'suspended flagpoles',
which greeted Scouts as they arrived.
