Be prepared to be amazed as Scout Troop 759 heads from the streets of Harlem to the woods of Camp Keowa. Eleven year old new scout Keith Dozier spends his first... week at camp facing the challenges of the woods - the dock test in the deep dark lake, creepy creatures of the night, the daunting climbing tower, the raucous dining hall and the seductive Siberian sirens in the kitchen. With help from his fellow scouts K.C., Devon and Manny and wise Scoutmaster Sowah, young Keith faces the challenges and earns his place as a Scout.
"759: Boy Scouts of Harlem" is a warm, tender, funny upbeat documentary about Scouting in an unexpected place. It is (to the best of our knowledge) the first feature documentary ever produced about a Scout troop.
The film was shot on location in New York City and at Camp Keowa, Ten Mile River Boy Scout Camp. It is directed by Jake Boritt & Justin Szlasa. The film will be available on home video shortly. To set up a screening for your community, Council or Troop please contact us.
