This morning, after the “Posting the Colors”, the campers were given presentations by Ray Hernandez on the roll of the Apaches in Texas and by Clifton Fifer on the Seminole Indian Scouts, including stories and music.

There are 58 campers, 16 counselors and several staff members and volunteers assisting the program.

The students are from the Austin area, Eldorado, and Menard School Systems.

The afternoon was spent at the Sol Meyer Boy Scout Camp where they had instructions in swimming, Archery, Shinny and Native American Crafts.

After a formal “Lowering the Colors”, the campers were given a demonstration of Kiowa Dancing.
