After a 6,000 mile journey around the country, a special cross constructed of white oak from the Summit Bechtel Reserve will be used in Methodist and Catholic services Sunday, says Rev. Greg Godwin, a chaplain in Base Camp D.
"I never thought it would be used that way," says Godwin about the cross, which several years ago started out as a request for leftover timber from the Summit construction site.
"It's okay to get dirty. The dirt washes off. The dirt's the thing that keeps us connected," said Eagle Scout Mike Rowe at this afternoon's 2013 National Scout Jamboree stadium show, which left a crowd of over 60,000 Scouts, Venturers and visitors inspired and excited.
Rowe, known for being the host of Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe on the Discovery network, told Scouts that getting your hands dirty, working hard, and learning a skill will always pays off.

Jambopalooza, just starting at AT&T Stadium, is "a mixture of fun events and activities," says Stadium Experience Director Bruce Haverly. A whole new set of events happening at the stadium and all Scouts and Venturers are invited.
The Jambopalooza is one of the largest events at the 2013 National Scout Jamboree, and is a new event never seen at a previous jamboree.
