Summary

This colour film opens with wide landscape views of a small Scout campsite in the Sussex countryside (?). The boys undertake camp chores that include washing dishes, preparing food, hauling wood for camp fires and building wooden structures to be used around camp. Upon returning from a walk, several older boys sit together on camp, with other adults. The group play a game of Rounders (?) formed of Boy Scout verses adult teams.
