Meanwhile the warm lal summer sun beats down on deserted Camp Impeesa. Boats and canoes are pu away and an eerie silenc langs over the lake broken onl by the call of birds who hav come out since Scouts and Cub vanished over the hills ami the swirling dust. Big game animals are starl ing to emerge as the empty silence is prolonged. D.eer, es pecially, make their appear ance. Near Skookum Cub Vil lage a doe with twin fawns ap- peared. A brash young dog visiting the camp charged her and re ceived a real surprise when he in turn was put on the deat run by an aroused mother. Coming in from the Ranger Station recently five full-grown rabbits quite dark gray in color were sitting on the trail. As' they wers approached a spirited game of tag seem- ed to be in progress. On the road to Beaver Mines two yearling black bear cubs raced across the road in be- tween dust clouds to scramble up a hill and vanish into the woods. Tliree Venturers reappeared in Impeesa to further sample the fishing. These Fourth Com- pany boys have uncanny luck and eke out their rations right handily. With the Scout troop, from Leavitt led by Scouter Lervae Gaboon the camping season wound up in a blaze of glory. Both groups of campers had to do their cooking in the Cub Kitchens as there was a ban on open fires. Fish seemed to be a chief article of diet. In between fishing periods the canoes and the sailboats were in constant use. It is a pleasure to sec that a number of Scouts, Venturers and lead- ers are acquiring some skill in saiiboating. There is just enough wind at times to cause the mariners to talk back from the north end of the lake. Few groups of Scouts seem- ed to have the hearty rollicking fun that the Leavitt Troop had. Scouter Cahoon had less than a dozen boys including two Ven- turers. Realizing that water- front skills are a must for Scouts IK called on waterfront director Ned Bosjniak for as sistance. What followed was a fin, demonstration of Canoe Safet and then unlimited practice ii the various aspects of it. Th canoes were intentionall swamped and Uie crews force to right them where necessar and empty all or at least par of the water. Staying with th canoe was emphasized but th correct way to re-enter a canoe in the water was demonstratec and practiced. Scouter and boys had a whale of a time, as you cai guess. Then, for something new, the instructor introduce canoe races with the canoes in groups of tliree or four, each jroup set in a frame of lash ed light poles to give an out rigger appearance that an- swered to steering in a delight- "ul manner. In anticipation of ever in- creasing fire hazard, Ranger Ted Loblaw arranged a fire- jombing exercise that was a marvelous sight to behold. Two specially converted air- craft from tlie Cowlcy airport moved in on a small smoke tnd let their cargo of water go vith extreme accuracy. Freed rom tlie weight of water, each lane seemed to jump vertical- y and at the speed each flew ast manoeuvering was neces- ary to avoid hitting the dan- erously close mountains. Leth- ridge and Leavitt Scouts on IB lake had a ring-side seat. Visitor Henk van der Rest the only camera man on and. He should have a mar- elous set of slides to take ome to Holland Hiis week.
