West Country scouts join thousands from across the globe for the World Scout Jamboree in America
Scouts from the West Country travelled to America to join tens of thousands of other scouts from around the world.
They were among some 50,000 young people from 169 countries taking part in the 24th World Scout Jamboree.
The event takes place in a different country every four years and this year was in West Virginia, USA.
While there, the scouts took part in a series of outdoor activities with the aim of learning new skills they can use throughout their lives.
Scout leader Jimmy Divall from West Coker in Somerset brought a group of young people to the jamboree. He says the opportunity to try new activities and make friends with people from across the world is life changing.
The first World Scout Jamboree took place in 1920 and this year's was the biggest ever. Among the thousands in West Virginia was Chief Scout Bear Grylls. He believes the experience makes a big difference to people's lives.
