Bad Kreuznach, Germany, May 30, 1998: Vincent West of Explorer Post 26 Heidelberg, Germany, sits in the “Indian Village” part of Intercamp ‘98 and carefully twists horse hairs together to create a Roach, a traditional American Indian head dress. The 1998 event — sponsored by the Trans-Atlantic Council, the arm of Boy Scouts of America serving Americans in Europe — saw some 3,000 scouts from eight countries participate. Along with Americans, scouts from Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, the United Kingdom, France, the Netherlands and Belgium participated.

The event, which had as that year’s theme “The Great American Frontier,” also included representatives from eight Native American Tribal nations through the participation of the Native American Association of Germany.
