BOY SCOUTS
OF AMERICA 
The Scout Service Corps. composed of a different group of 130 boys and 13 leaders each week, demonstrates scouting skills in an open-air pavilion. In canopied booths, Scouts and Explorers put on exhibitions of knot-tying, map and compass reading and fire-making - and invite onlookers to try their hand. Within a 300-seat Council Ring, visiting scout units join the Service Corps in various special shows developing the pavilion's theme, "The Wonderful World of Scouting." Programs include seamanship, signaling and rope-spinning. Members of the service Corps, wearing distinctive red jackets and Unisphere armbands, are also stationed about the fairgrounds. They form honor guards for distinguished dignitaries and take part in other Fair ceremonies.
Service Corps' hometowns are listed at the pavilion for visitors who wish to know if any boys from their area are on duty. From late May through September, the boys come from 32 states; during the other weeks they represent troops in the New York area.
* Admission: free.
