I'm Ben! I am 18 years old and am a senior in High School. I live ten miles outside Washington, D.C. I have been in Scouting for many years. I became an Eagle Scout last year. This will be my fourth Jamboree. I went to the 18th World Jamboree in Holland in 1995, the National Jamboree in 1997, and last summer I traveled to Japan to participate in the 12th Nippon Jamboree as part of the BSA-BSN Friendship Program. Besides Scouting, I am heavily involved with Amnesty International. I am the president of my school's Amnesty club. I am also involved with Environmental work in my school and county. I like rock, and reading.
