Boy scouts learn lessons, have fun at Scout-O-Rama

MONROE, MI (Toledo News Now) -

They're calling it 'the scouting event of the year' this weekend in Monroe.

It was Scout-O-Rama at the Monroe County Fairgrounds.

300 scouts pitched their tents for the weekend to take part in activities ranging from geo-caching to a pinewood derby.

The event started in 1932 and is Michigan's oldest scout show.

Young men learn valuable lessons from scouting.

"I like being a scout because we get to go on a lot of campouts and we learn all these different skills that we never learn in the true world," said scout, Justin Zboch.

Scouts from other parts of the world are also here to share their experiences.
