Dozens of Girl Scouts are heading to the Summit in West Virginia for five days of mountain biking, rock climbing and other outdoor challenges.

The Girl Scout Jamboree gets under way Wednesday at the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in Fayette County. The Jamboree is expected to welcome about 240 girls and adults through Sunday.

While most of the Scouts and adults will be from West Virginia, some are also coming from Virginia and Maryland.

The Jamboree is hosted by Girl Scouts of Black Diamond Council.
