PEARSON - People from Wisconsin camp all the time, but it's not every day a group of British Boy Scouts comes to camp in the Northwoods for a week. 

"As a group, we've never been to the United States of America before, " said Troop Leader Stephen Bell.

Bell can cross that off his list. He's one of 11 British Boy Scouts and leaders staying at Camp Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan this week.

"We were looking for somewhere to extend the stay, so after a Google search, this site appeared to be the best one in the local area, so we headed up here for the rest of our time in the US," said Bell.

The 1st Carlton Colville Air Scouts come from the eastern coast of England in Lowestoft, about three and a half hours from London.

After spending time at the EAA event in Oshkosh, the troop came to Pearson for the week. It cost more than $30,000 and two years to make the trip happen. 

"I'm certainly not disappointed having arrived," said Bell.

Now that they're here, scouts say there are many differences from home.
