10,000 Messengers of Peace at New Jersey, USA Camporee
10,000 Scouts from across the US State of New Jersey became Messengers of Peace during the Camporee held in Sea Girt, NJ over the weekend of May 16-18, 2014. Hosted by the New Jersey State Police and National Guard, Scouts were able to earn their Messengers of Peace Ring badge by conducting local service projects in advance of the Camporee, and by participating in a variety of local and onsite activities related to peace and service. Guests included BSA Chief Scout Wayne Brock and Dr. Hamad Alyahya, International Commissioner of the Boys Scouts of Saudi Arabia. Special thanks to BSA Volunteers Bray Barnes and Peter Hyman, and the New Jersey State Police Eagle Scout Association, for an outstanding and inspirational event!
