An adventure awaits

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

Adventure awaits those who step up to the opportunity. Although sometimes a little nudge is needed to take that step. Therefore, the Boy Scouts of America is bringing an adventure to you.

Starting in January, as part of the Boy Scout of America 100th anniversary, the Adventure Base 100, a 10,000-square foot mobile campus, will be making it’s a way across the U.S.

The trailer includes a ropes course, zip line, interactive digital exhibits and multi-sensory IMAX-like dome that will screen a documentary of three adventure bases – Sea Base in Florida, the Northern Tier in Minnesota and the Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron.

As the people across the country view this film, a local face will be spied.

Jonathan Osden, 12, a scout with Troop 22, was featured in the film.

On Oct. 24, Osden traveled to the ranch and was interviewed by the director about scouting and was filmed doing different scout activities.

“It was pretty cool,” Osden said.

What Osden hopes people will learn about scouting through this film is “That scouting is fun and that it gives you leadership skills and many types of skills.”

His father, Daryl, explained an e-mail was sent out, inviting scouts to participate in the film. Osden is the only local scout to appear in the film.
