The Barren River Lake Scout Celebration is an annual event sponsored by the US Army Corps of Engineers and held at the Tailwater Campground below the dam at the Barren River Lake near Glasgow, Kentucky for Scouts of all ages. The event is a fun-filled weekend designed to allow scouts to showcase their skills, achievements, and talents. During the weekend, scouts will demonstrate their outdoor skills by setting up their campsites and building their gateways.  Throughout the event, scouts will also strive to show everyone their scout spirit as they compete for "The Jigger Award," named after Walter D. "Jigger" Aspley, who exemplified the very best of scouting's high ideals.
