Winter advancement camp held for boy scouts


Parents looking to keep their kids busy during winter break found a pretty fun option on Friday!

The LaSalle Council of the Boy Scout's of America hosted a winter advancement camp.

It's a chance for boy scouts from all over the region to earn new badges.

When we caught up with them today they were making electric motors out of household items.

David Harnish is the chairman of South Council Winter Camp says, "It gives them an opportunity to do something different during the winter break, instead of watching video games, it gives them a chance to work on some badges they normally wouldn't have a chance to do in their home town because most of these badges require very specific skills."

Friday's event was held at Bethel College.

Scouts will be back out there Saturday earning more badges from nine until 4:30.
