Ever witnessed a camp-cooking mishap, chaotic den meeting or Scoutmaster slip-up?
In that sense, you’re a lot like Scouters from 50 years ago, as evidenced by the collection of 33 Boy Scouts of America cartoons printed in Scouting magazine during the years of 1964 to 1966.
Some are charmingly old-fashioned and use roles that have been phased out, such as Den Mothers, or well-worn stereotypes, like helping an old lady cross the street.
But others could have been printed in 2014. Take a look and tell me which remind you of your Scouts (or of when you were a Scout!) and which don’t apply today.
My favorite’s probably the “Wild Salutes I Have Known.” What’s yours?
By the way, I found all these in the Scouting magazine online archives, available for anyone’s perusal right now. Enjoy!
