This chapter presents the tenth-day experience of Jay Mechling while camping with Boy Scout Troop 49. In the morning, the troop had a regular round of advancement classes. Shortly after lunch, Mechling and his friend went down to the lower Waterfront area on Usonia and took the outboard motorboat to Sandy Pits, a beach that the troop and others often use to launch boats. The Rope Swing station was the pivotal station for a Treasure Hunt. The boys were thrown together in activities that alternatively required intense cooperation and intense competition with other boys. Loyalty and trust are highly valued in the official Boy Scout literature and also in the real-life demands of the male group.
