Footage of joint camp between scouts and guides with added audio narration. We see a camp being set up, with tents erected by Guides and Scouts outside Lennoxlove House. Scout and Guide leaders assist in the organising of the camp. The following morning a Union Jack is raised. A group sets to building a bridge over the River Tyne. A younger group is then showing undertaking a challenge to move a bell over obstacles without it ringing. A further group is shown building a 'Luxemburger'. A lunch is prepared and work on the bridge and 'Luxumburgers' continues. As night draws in a large camp fire is lit and the attendees sing and we close on brief clips of some of the skits performed.
