Special needs Scouts go scuba diving at National Jamboree

Scouts by the tens of thousands have come to the 2010 National Jamboree and found themselves in new environments. And they’ve been challenged to do things they didn’t know they could do.

For one young man, his jamboree “gut check” may be rappelling down the side of a stories-high wall. For another, it’s conjuring the courage to approach Scouts from another troop and offering to swap patches. And for many, it’s simply being away from mom and dad for a couple of weeks.

A group of special needs Scouts from Utah’s Great Salt Lake Council encountered such moments Friday night.
