Picture Segment Description


SCENE 1 Aunt May does special inspections of the cabins. Big Bird and the kids fix their beds neatly, but Big Bird and counselor Mickey need to urge Rusty to fix his.
SCENE 2 Telly tells Oscar about how he misses Big Bird. Oscar isn't happy either, because Big Bird is probably breathing fresh air, making friends, and having fun.

SCENE 3 Aunt May does a mail call. Big Bird thinks about what Snuffy is doing on Sesame Street, and almost misses getting a huge postcard from him. The other campers getting mail are Lisa Simon, Joan Ganz Cooney, Emily Squires, Ozzie Alfonso, Dulcy Singer, Janet Shapiro (researcher), Jon Stone, Thelma Moses, Al Hyslop, and Jeff Moss.
SCENE 4 Big Bird gets his free period looking around the whole camp. He talks about the differences between the city and the country.
SCENE 5 Big Bird learns to paddle in a canoe with help from the kids.

SCENE 6 After canoeing, Big Bird, Rusty, and the kids learn to swim!

SCENE 7 After swimming, Big Bird, Rusty, and the kids dry themselves off and head back to Cabin 10. The sponsors are announced.
