More than 12,000 Boy Scouts from the Kansas City region attended a weekend event called Scouting 500 at the Kansas Speedway.
The Kansas City Star reports the event at the Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas, included a zip line, go-karts, scuba lessons, remote-control helicopters and lessons on welding, carpentry, archery and more.
Scott Boswell of Commerce Trust Co. of Kansas City and the event’s chairman says Scouting 500 allows scouts 14 and older to do things that they’ve never done before.
Organizers say they plan to repeat the weekend event every four years.
