More than 100 boys attended the Eklutna Fall Campboree, and most of them attempted to earn a search and rescue merit badge. Between the skills they acquired at camp and the lessons they learned from professional emergency responders, it should be of little surprise if the next hiker or camper to go missing in the Alaskan wilderness is rescued with the aid of a Boy Scout.
