Scouting Around ••*>'•»?', The days of summer are here, the favorite season of the year for most boys. And particularly for the Scouts who get to attend camp. Area Boy Scouts have the opportunity to visit Camp M.K. Brown, located east of Mobeetie, for a week during the summer sessions. Camping out in tents during their stay from Sunday to Saturday, the boys get a chance to practice skills they have learned during the year or to develop new ones. Among the activities available at the camp are hiking, swimming, fishing and boating. Classes are conducted in aquatics, archery, rifle use, signal communications, use of the ax, and use of ropes and knots. But there are times for just relaxation-sleeping, carving, writing letters, taking a quiet walk or just talking with friends. The last session at Camp M.K. Brown begins today-until next summer.
