This week I’ve got some great images of old Camp Guides used to provide information about the summer camp experience at Osage Scout Camp (1920), Ginger Blue Scout Camp (1921), and Camp Dan Sayre (1923).  Additionally, I’ve included a 1922 Annual Report from the Kansas City Council with an image of an early Eagle Scout from the Kansas City area.  For more information about early camp experiences for Kansas City Boy Scouts, make sure to check out Andy Dubill’s book titled, “IN THE WOODS.”  He’s also written mutiple articles on the subject for the International Scouting Collectors Association Journal.

I was browsing eBay yesterday and the following item caught my eye…it is a drills manual from Troop 1 of Kansas City, Missouri. The print date is 1914. The preface reads, “Drills and marches are valuable because of the qualities they develop in the individual boy such as obedience to command, mental and physical alertness, and a good carriage.” How many Troops of today have their own drill manuals? I imagine not many do…  More importantly, how many Scouts have a good carriage
