Everyone who participated in the Heart Walk Saturday wasn't excited about the chilly weather, but at least they didn't have to spend the night outside. That's exactly what Boy Scout's were doing at the VA Park for a Camp-O-Ree Weekend. They spent Friday night in tents when it was only 30 degrees outside.

This is the 5th Annual Camp-O-Ree Weekend sponsored by the Diocese in Wheeling and Charleston, but this was the first time they came to Clarksburg. The boy scouts woke up bright and early Saturday morning to learn about finger printing by the local FBI services and then continued with a service project. The boys helped clean up the People's Hospice Garden. Folks said we only got to see a small taste of what all the boys get to do. 

"The boys have come in from all over the state. We have from Charles Town to Charleston, Wheeling to Martinsville, Elkins and Morgantown. About 100 boy scouts and their adult scouting advisors," said Bob Greer, Chairmen of the Committee.

Organizers said the weekend is all about fellowship and fun.
