Morgantown, WV – On Saturday, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) visited Camp Mountaineer in Monongalia County to hear from Scouting leaders about a recent summer camp session and tour areas where he previously camped as a Scout.
“I fondly remember spending my summers at Camp Mountaineer. The friendships we built around the campfire at Seneca Camp forged unbreakable bonds, and I continue to use the lessons and skills I learned from my Scout leaders,” said Senator Manchin. “Because of the positive impact Camp Mountaineer and Scouting had on me, I knew West Virginia was the perfect home for the National Scout Jamboree, and as Governor, I was proud to make Summit Bechtel Reserve a reality. I am thankful for our Scouting leaders and volunteers who have helped shape generations of young people into leaders of tomorrow.”
