Accompanied by Bishop Morkovsky, the St. Laurence Boy Scouts, most likely from Amarillo, TX, (but possibly from Sugar Land) go on a camping trip in what appears to be the canyon region of the Panhandle. Captured in this home movie from the Morkovsky collection, the boys hike, build campfires over which they cook their meals, and collect rock samples, possibly looking for arrowheads.
