BETTER CAMPING FOR BOYS

For boys because only boys are pictured in the utilitarian photos and because Kenealy assumes his campers need the most basic instruction in dressing and feeding themselves. But if a boy faced with washing his own sweater might need to be advised to ""ask your mother or sister how this is done,"" few campers of either sex will sit still for Kenealy's injunctions to ""avoid slimy or moss-covered stones as they tend to be slippery"" and ""don't worry if occasionally you repeat a popular main dish once or even twice on a long trip."" Map reading, knot making, basic equipment and first aid are covered in more detail here than in Aileen Paul's Kids Camping (KR, 1973); however, campers who are ready for the more extensive outings that would make this information necessary will find the tone here oversolicitous.
