Game of Scouting, The (Series) (1967)

Garnet Anthony, a CBC announcer and former scout, was the host of this summer series from Edmonton, which celebrated the sixtieth anniversary of the Boy Scouts. In each half-hour program, he or Mike McNamara led a group of scouts through different practices and procedures for outdoor living. In one program, for example, Anthony and the troop examined topographical maps and prepared a packsack for an overnight hike. In another, McNamara and the scouts demontrated knot-typing by building a "cablecar tramway" over a ravine, and discussed the uses of rope for safety and in rescue situations.
