Folks trying to follow what is going on at the Boy Scouts Jamboree in Fayette County this week might want to check out Patrol Z.
Patrol Z is a corps of Scout and Venturer reporters formed by the Boy Scouts America’s National Council in tandem with the creation of the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve, according to information from the Boy Scouts website.
The group will be sharing stories and information about the Jamboree this week through social media, including blogs. According to the website, many Scouts and Venturers from across the country applied for the Patrol Z initiative. The corps of reporters includes award-winning videographers, photographers, writers, web developers and social media experts.
The website said many applicants still participate as Patrol Z Ambassadors, an important focus group and messengers for the Summit.
