It’s not often that Boy Scouts get to go to a national jamboree, let alone a world jamboree, which occurs only every four years. 

However,  Oconee scouts Jack Doler and Cutler Shiver from Troop 149 did just that when they attended the 24th World Jamboree at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia. 

Doler, a sophomore at North Oconee High School, and Shiver, a senior at Oconee County High School, each attended the jamboree in different roles. 

They were just two of 55,000 attendees.

“It (the camps) were made so that you’d have people next to you from places that are not even close to where you live,” said Doler, “so like England, Argentina, Finland and Germany.”
