Zombie First Aid, Storm the Castle, Mountain Men and canoeing are just some of the exciting events at Scouting’s Outdoor Adventure on the River (SOAR). This mini Jamboree promises to be great fun with stage shows both Saturday and Sunday evening plus a fireworks extravaganza on Sunday evening. SOAR is an opportunity to enjoy your fellow scouts and meet new scouting friends from around New England. Plus it’s in our own backyard on the banks of the Charles River so that we can be super green and use the T for transportation and then hike to the event. Hope to see you there!

Adult Leader: Brian O’Rourke
