This chapter presents the fourth-day experience of Jay Mechling while camping with Boy Scout Troop 49. As Mechling approached the Tiger Patrol site, he could see Tim — a small, first-year camper who was stirring the milk for the morning's cold breakfast of cereal, fruit, and bread — standing over the shoulder of one of the cooks. After breakfast, the Scouts scattered for advancement classes, and Mechling decided to sit for nature class. After a brief period of individual sports, the troop assembled again for the walk up to the campfire site for the evening's troop campfire. On the way up to the site, Mechling could see two campfires. The presence of nature requirements in the Boy Scouts is a legacy of the turn-of-the-century, Progressive Era origins of the movement.
