Looks like the members are at fall-in attention facing their group flag and waiting for leader's inspection.

Middle group seems to be Sea Scouts as they have bright white uniform with dark socks, and their oars can be seen laying behind.

Location unknown, but a flat grassland with no trees and a concrete staircase seen going up the slope of the hill, probably a dedicated campsite.

Another angle of the same camp. Sea Scout leader (bright white uniform) seen inspecting the neckerchief of a scout member, while other members stand at attention.

Old/Traditional style scout hat can be seen. These would be replaced by a beret, and the traditional style now relegated as a ceremonial item.
