Boy Scouts from the Santa Clarita Valley tour the USS Constitution in Boston harbor.

 

As Boy Scout troop 830 gets ready for the 100th National Jamboree they first toured the East Coast visiting important historical places such as visiting the Mayflower II, Plymouth Rock, the Boston Freedom Trail and Plymouth Plantation on the first day of the East Coast tour.

The second day they departed for New York and Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. On the third day, they toured Independence Hall, the National Constitution Center and ended the day on the Gettysburg Battlefield.

Next, the troop visited Ft. McHenry and held a flag raising.

The troop rolled out a huge flag with 15 stars and with 15 stripes on it. Each star is 2-feet large.

In addition, the troop enjoyed lunch at the U.S. Naval Academy. They also visited the National Museum of Health and Medicine, after which they departed for Washington D.C.

Other activities included a  tour of the eastern corridors of the White House and visits to the Pentagon, National Archives, Washington Memorial, Supreme Court and the WW II Memorial. 

The Boy Scouts continued to  explore more exciting places in Washington D.C. before they headed to the National Jamboree, a 10-day event, which will be held through Aug. 4 in Fort A.P. Hill, Virginia.
