This home movie captures Parker Beebe’s trip to the Boy Scouts 7th World Jamboree in Bad Ischl, Austria in August 1951. More than 13,000 boy scouts attended, representing 38 countries, to promote international friendships and world peace. Beebe was a member of Scout Troop 5 in Amarillo. After the group arrives in Austria, the boy scouts set up camp and meet with troops from around the globe. Later, American scouts put on a show for the assembly, performing Native American dances and demonstrating their expertise in bull whips. The end of the jamboree launches another European adventure for Beebe and company, as the scouts visit Zurich, Switzerland, and Paris, France, before boarding the SS Homeland in Cherbourg. After they return to the United States, the Texas scouts make a stop in Detroit, Michigan, and return to Dallas.
