Patrol Camporee

           These slides were used for one or more Santa Monica District camporees. They show a scout and Scouter looking west at a setting sun over Santa Monica Bay. The unique cross-hatched fence they are leaning against is the fence along the Santa Monica bluffs overlooking the Pacific Coast highway. SM-PC marking at bottom stands for Santa Monica Patrol Camporee.

Printed on various pieces of scrap leather for the 1962 wilderness camp. By cutting the horizontal lines and

JLT Slides 1957-65

Slides for JLT (Junior Leader Training) were often created by Districts for their individual events. 
The tradition of individual slide making went back a long way in Crescent Bay Area Council. Scouts crafted their own neckerchief slides from whatever materials were readily available.  In some cases, such as JLT, making a slide was a program requirement.
