Boy Scout Camp Receiving Donations After Deadly Tornado

Donations are helping replace the gear a group of Boy Scouts lost last month when their camp was hit by a deadly tornado.

Four boys were killed when a tornado struck the leadership camp in Little Sioux, Iowa, on June 11. Many of the Scouts were from Nebraska.

Cabela's donated sleeping bags and tents for all the Scouts at the camp, and the Boy Scouts of America gave them all new uniform shirts.

One of the boys who was at the camp, 13-year-old Tobin Brown, started a fund at Mutual of Omaha Bank to help replace other gear and clothing that Scouts lost.

The Mid-America Council is also raising money to rebuild the camp. So far, the council has collected more than $170,000 of the roughly $1.8 million needed to rebuild the camp.
