Despite its name, the 2013 National Scout Jamboree includes many international Scouts, including Norwegian Scouts Christina Bjørseth, Susann Sørseth and Marte Krestiansen.
"Everyone's really friendly," says Bjørseth.
She and her friends are especially interested in the zip line "and climbing," she says.
Why did these Scouts want to come to the first jamboree at the Summit Bechtel Reserve?
"It's the United States," Krestiansen says. A fair reply after thousands of U.S. Scouts visited her corner of the world at the 2011 World Scout Jamboree in neighboring Sweden.
"It's cool," Krestiansen said of her visit to this nation, "and hot," as her comments inevitably turned to comparing West Virginia's weather to the relatively cool weather of her homeland.
"It's hot, too hot," says Sørseth.
