Dougherty County- Scouts from South Georgia met at Camp Osborne for one of the last home-cooked meals they'll have in eight days.
About 40 boys will make the trip to the annual Boy Scout Jamboree where they'll earn new merit badges, meet other scouts, and most of all put all their scout training to the test.
"One thing always use the buddy system in case you get lost. If you get bit by a snake or something, you're going to want to have someone go get help for. You're going to want to know your basic first aid in case you cut yourself," says David Dubiansky.
On their way, the scouts will stop in Washington to visit the monuments and do some sight-seeing.
