Campers at Lanier Camp in Eliot act out a Bible story. Sunday's "primitive dramas" in the woods were part of a program to teach young campers the "democratic feeling of ideal human relationships" and provide "fundamental practice on daily living." The camp operated from 1908 to 1940.

The image is printed on a postcard. Handwritten on the bottom is "Sterling [Lanier] -- Who is this? I do not remember anyone in that part but you. I do not know who either of these is -- do you?"
