In the foreground, food is cooked on the elevated fires. This is one of the latest techniques developed by scouters for outdoor cooking. Believing that leadership is one of the most important qualities for successful scouting, the Three Rivers Council of the Boy Scouts of America conducts an annual junior leader training camp each fall at the Camp Buffalo scout camp. This year's session was held at the camp for five days beginning Oct. 23. Eighteen selected junior eaders completed the course and now are qualified to work with 'heir scoutmasters as senior patrol leaders or junior assistant scoutmasters. Despite cold weather, the scouts set up an outdoor campsite, and (Staff Engraving.) lived in a tent village for the five days. They cooked all their meals outdoors, using the newest methods and techniques for " preparing meals. In addition to the experience gained in setting up a campsite and cooking, they developed .skills in axemanship, hiking, the use of a compass, and other elements of outdoor living. • Indoor sessions were held to teach .the boys the fundamentals of planning scout activities and operating troops or patrols. Originally, 31 scouts were scheduled to participate in the course, but because of the flu the number Before meals can be cooked, the scouts must prepare the food and put it in the proper utensils: Above, Herbert Kline, who headed the training staff, shows a group of junior leaders the newest .methods for preparing a meal outdoors.
