younger Camping heritage Back to nature movement on By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON Camping is as old as the human race The form of living followed by our earliest ancestors really was camping Mans outdoor living lasted for many millennia his indoor living only a few thousands of years Hence the urge today to get out into the open air is a recial heritage a primeval per haps a biological instinct Camping is also a part of the American frontier heritage But the summer camp as such is a product of the latter part of the 19th century After the Civil War the United States changed from an openair to a housedin na tion At late 18W almost three fourths of the population was rural by the close of the first quarter of the 20th century more than half the people lived in communities of 8000 or more And as the nation was urbanized a backton a t u r e movement began to make its appeal to educators and recreation teach ers As the private camp idea percolated down through eco nomic levels of society so did camping begin to appeal to old er and older age groups In addition to thousands of private camps at least 6000 shortterm camps operated by social welfare and semipublic organizations annually welcome more than a million American boys and girls Unlike the more expensive private camps which like to take youngsters for at least a month at a stretch and preferably nine weeks these an nually operate on four or more twoweek shifts These camps are conducted by the Boy and Girl Scouts the YMCA YWCA YMHA the Federation of Girls Clubs the

national forests with a total area of 1861 million square miles And state governments continue to make things easier for the camper blazing trails setting aside areas for motor camping erecting
