Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Big Bird welcomes the viewers and says they’ll be going on a hike. Aunt May explains what the hike will be like and makes sure that Big Bird and the kids have everything they need to pack for the overnight trip on the mountain. Radar has the relish and Big Bird's knapsack.

SCENE 2 Aunt May, Mickey, Big Bird and the kids follow the arrows to the top of the mountain. Along the way, they study nature.
With Mickey's help, Cabin 3 plays a joke on Cabin 10. The big rock isn't really Echo Rock, and everyone from Cabin 3 is hiding behind it.
SCENE 3 Luis reads a letter from Big Bird. Telly is upset that Big Bird isn't his friend anymore, because Big Bird has made friends with Rusty. Luis reminds him that Big Bird can still have his old friends, just like Telly does after making friends with Aristotle.
SCENE 4 Big Bird and Mickey cook hot dogs and talk about the uses of a fire in the woods.

SCENE 5 By the campfire, Big Bird and the kids sing the official Camp Echo Rock song, "The Echo Rock."

SCENE 6 Big Bird and Rusty go to sleep in the tent. They think that tomorrow they'll have to walk a hundred miles back to the camp, but they're really right next to the cabin.

Mickey whispers the sponsors, and says that he needs to get some sleep.
