The Khaki Scouts use both their skills and pride to protect their community. Here are the troops’ best tips for keeping everyone on New Penzance safe and secure.
Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, two twelve-year-olds fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore -- and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in more ways than anyone can handle.
Suit Up Troops
A key to protecting any community is to have a recognizable uniform that informs others you are an official authority figure. The Khaki Scouts are in tip top shape in their uniforms that include a beret, hankerchief, socks, boots, and colorful badges that adorn their khaki suits. The distinctive outfits express confidence to the people of New Penzanze, making them trust in the protection of the Scouts.
Build High Headquarters
The Khaki Scouts build a treehouse that sits high in the sky in order for them to see everything on the island. This ensures that they can always be on the lookout for trouble and see for miles if anyone is in danger. Therefore, in order to really know what is going on in the community, one must have an excellent overview of the land. In addition to building a tall tower of operation, it is also important to stock up with the essentials just as the Scouts did – playing cards, snacks, and pillows are a must.
Gadgets and Gear Galore
The Khaki Scouts mean real business when they are protecting their community, and use effective gadgets and threatening weapons to ward off any opposing forces! The best supplies to have on hand are special tools for unzipping locked tents and an array of weapons including guns, axes, and nail-bolted bludgeons. And don’t forget a motorcycle to ride to the scene of a crime in a speedy fashion.
When In Doubt, Turn To Family
Once the Khaki Scouts realize that Sam and Suzy are meant to be together, they turn to Cousin Ben, played by Jason Schwartzman, for extra help. Cousin Ben is not only related to one of the scouts, but also works at the bigger summer camp, Fort Lebanon. His experience and skills come in handy as he leads the scouts on their secret mission. It is always a good idea to turn to trusted family and close friends in times of trouble for additional support.
Extreme Times Call for Extreme Measures
The Khaki Scouts step up their game to help the community during the hectic flood. They work together as a team to lift people out from the rain and bring them to shelter. Instead of panicking in a tough environment, the Scouts remain alert and and dedicated to helping the people. Therefore, no matter how extreme the situation becomes, one must remember to join with a team to do whatever it takes to protect the community.
