GRANTSVILLE — More than 18,000 local Boy Scouts and their leaders attended a two-day commemorative event at the Deseret Peak Complex.

The campout provided a chance to mingle with scouts from all over the Great Salt Lake Council, which includes Salt Lake, Tooele, Summit and much of Davis counties. Games and activities to test their skills promoted camaraderie, but also fun. Many scouts also earned merit badges in the process.
