The Clean-Up

Categories: Iii Camping

While resting after dinner is the time for story-telling; then, before

taking part in sports of any kind, every particle of debris, even small

bits of egg-shell and paper, should be gathered up and burned until not

a vestige remains. To be "good sports," thought must be taken for the

next comers and the camping-ground left in perfect order, absolutely

free from litter or debris of any kind.

When breaking camp be _sure_ to soak the fire with water again and

again. It is criminal to leave any coals or even a spark of the fire


Be _positive_ that the _fire is out_.
