Scouts from London, England learn paddle boarding at Eastwood Metropark
(WKEF/WRGT) - The first day of school is right around the corner which means there are only a few more chances to soak up some memories this summer.
This morning, FOX 45 got to really soak up some memories while paddle boarding at Eastwood Metropark.
We had some very special guests join us from across the water (and not just the lake, but all the way across the ocean!)
The 4th Woodgreen Scouts from London, England joined us to learn the water sport together.
This is the 20th year for the London scouts to join the local Dayton Boy Scouts Troop.
For many of these kids, this is their first trip to America.
“We’ve got an exchange program with Troop 101 in Oakwood, so every two years they will come over to London and we look after them and then two years later we come here and they look after us for an action packed fun-filled program,” Chris Thorpe, Scout Leader from 4th Woodgreen Scouts told us.
He says this is the week that the scouts look forward to all year long.
