BUFFALO, NY (WKBW-TV) - A group of boy scouts wrapped up a weekend long campout, not in the woods, but in the middle of the city.
Troop #139 at Saint Martin De Porres held the inner-city camporee on northhampton street.

The scouts participated in every thing from rock climbing, bowling, archery, and hatchet throws.
They even watched fire truck and bomb squad demonstrations.
Organizers say the activities give the boys a sense of self-worth.
