Iowa Boy Scouts Camp

1st Jan 2008

The World Scouting family is deeply saddened by the horrific impact of the devastating storms that tore through western Iowa this last week. The World Scout Committee, the World Scout Bureau and World Scouting at large extend their deepest condolences to the Boy Scouts of America and to the parents and families of Scouts Josh Fennen, Sam Thomsen, Ben Petrzilka and Aaron Eilerts who lost their lives while learning how to better serve others. They also extend their sincerest gratitude to the leaders, Scouts, and emergency personnel who responded so quickly and effectively and their moral support to the young people and adults injured and to their families.

May the souls of these four young Scouts who died rest in peace.
