Camping For Boys

CampingForBoysThis book shows a world where character and morality are prized. The goal of camp is not just to get the boys out the parents’ hair, but to encourage good character and citizenship.

Camp leaders are enticed by the contribution they can make to the boys’ futures and are selected (or rejected) based on their own moral virtues.

There are many practical suggestions for safety and comfort aside from the absence of modern materials and conveniences, like nylon and gas stoves.

Medical advice given in the book is from 1913 and may be unhelpful, often contradicts current practice and involves unsafe or now illegal substances
