Boy Scouts of America Pavilion

The Boy Scouts of America had an open-air pavilion where each week, a different group of 130 boys and 13 leaders, demonstrated scouting skills. In canopied booths, Scouts and Explorers put on exhibitions of knot-tying, map and compass reading and fire making. Within a 300 seat Council Ring, visiting scout units joined the Service Corps in various special shows that developed the pavilion's theme, "The Wonderful World of Scouting." Programs included seamanship, signaling and rope-spinning. Members of the Service Corps, who wore distinctive red jackets and Unisphere armbands, were also stationed throughout the fairgrounds.
