Awesome finds. Those ones do look older. You should post those to this Scout Finds thread.

Nice, where you find those old ones you also find silver. I have hit 4 old boy scout camps around me and have snagged silver in every one of them.

Thanks for posting and good luck!

That's awesome. My son is a scout, and I'd LOVE to find one of those for him. Still waiting on a response to a permission request from an old boy scout camp near me.

Most are easy to get permission to hunt. I have been in 4 and one girl scout camp. Never try when any scouts are camping though.

I hunted one today. Got a slide from the 50's it looks like:



Here is a hint when talking to them. Offer to return any arrows you come across. We find a lot and give them back. Most are aluminum shaft ones.

Neat finds, especially that "onward" one. Never seen one like that.

Thanks for the tip...I'll try that....the one that's near me closed and I've been having trouble getting ahold of someone who can give permission.

I LOVE that slide....that would be an awesome one for my son....hopefully I can find one if I ever get permission.

You can find those slides at regular campgrounds that Scouts frequently camp at also. I just recently found this:

That's a really good idea w/ the arrows. That's the coolest slide i've ever seen. Never knew they made them like that.
