TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

Dozens of boys from South Georgia will get up bright and early to head to West Virginia.

72 Boy Scouts leave Tifton at 5 a.m. Sunday for the National Scout Jamboree.

It's held once every four years.

The Jamboree gives an opportunity to reignite Scouts' passion for their organization.

The Scouts will be there in West Virginia participating in all kinds of outdoor activities until July 28th.

"The main purpose of the Jamboree is to get to know other Scouts better and get to talk about past scouting experiences," said Scott Morris, a Scout.

"I'm expecting a lot of fun," said Edward Walker. "Going to meet a lot of new people, make some experiences, get to know these guys better."

Morris said he believes around 40,000 Scouts attended the last National Scout Jamboree in 2013.
