Just over a week from now, a large contingent of youths and adults from Schuylkill and Carbon counties will converge on the Owl Creek section of Tamaqua for a first-ever major fall camping event.
The Boy Scouts of Black Rock District, Hawk Mountain Council, will hold a "camporee" at the 915-acre Owl Creek Reservoir from Friday to Sunday.
"With Scouts, leaders and volunteers, we are at approximately 100," said Adrienne Wrona on Tuesday. Wrona, of Schuylkill Haven, is Black Rock District executive.
At least 10 of the 26 troops in Schuylkill County have signed up.
