Summer Camp Troop Photos - Page 3

Here are more photos of Scout Troops taken while they were at summer camp at Camp Billy Gibbons. The troop setting, as you can see by these troop photos, was very informal.  Scouts in the troop paid a fee for a copy of the photo which was normally delivered on the last day of camp. 

We do not have the identify of some of these troop photos as to what troop they were.  Some others we do not know  what year they were taken as the envelope they were found in had no date.  Any information on a given photo will be   greatly appreciated and can be sent to the webmaster.  His e-mail address is found at the bottom of the home page of this web site at HOME PAGE
