Many Troops Under Canvas Next Week End

   Hongkong Boy Scouts will hold a big camp for three days beginning on Friday, on the slopes of Lion Rock, near the Kowloon Tong reservoir. The camp was primarily meant for troops in Kowloon and New Territories, but invitations have already been sent out to those in Hongkong.
   More than 23 troops, including those from as far away as Tai Po Tsai and Sheung Shui will take part, and the camp will be the first of its kind ever held in the Colony.
   A special souvenir album will be issued to every scout who attends the camp, and most parts of the camp will be filmed. The camp will be thrown open to visitors on Saturday, between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.
