The International Scout Centre illustrates many techniques to help young people "adapt to living on the land of men.

Eight cedar poles support a 30-foot high canvas tent, which contains a circular theatre where performances are given during the day and at 6 o'clock in the evening, young and old gather to sing around the fire.

A Service Corps of Scouts from Canada and the United States is attached to the Centre. They are 3,000 boys who take turns welcoming their brothers from all over the world and introducing visitors to the many activities of Scouting. Each day, 120 Scouts serve in this elite group that assists the organizers of the national and private pavilions. This is a unique opportunity to put the Scout doctrine into practice: to serve.

Amateur radio, forest survival, building signal towers, water sports, are all demonstrated and taught at the International Scout Centre.

The Service Corps includes Scouts, Scouters, Cub Scouts, Pioneers and Rover Scouts who come to serve for a period of seven days and guide the handicapped, give information to visitors, take part in ceremonies at the Place des Nations, in short, who are always ready.
