Another great part of Summer Camp was camp fires, and singing and telling stories around the fire. This picture shows such a scene from 1943. The picture was taken at a camp in New York.

Today's picture shows some young people at summer camp playing water games. I think one of the best things about summer camp was the water. Most summer camps are on either nice rivers or lakes, and are well equipped for enjoying the water. This picture was taken in 1942.

Ah yes, an important part of summer camp . . . writing home. This picture was taken in 1942 in a summer camp in Michigan. It seems so foreign now to write a letter by hand. It has probably been decades since I hand wrote a letter. I bet some of you still hold to the wonderful old tradition of hand writing letters.

Today's picture shows some young men eating at Summer Camp. It appears that they are eating pretty well. When I was young, I would go to Boy Scout summer camp and the food was usually pretty good there. The camps were along a river, so there was lots of water activities like swimming, canoeing, and boating. Overall, lots of fun.

With warmer weather finally here, I figured it was a good time for us to reminisce about Summer Camp. So, this week we will be looking at old camping pictures. Today's picture was taken at a summer camp in Arden, New York, and was taken in 1943.
I am hoping you all will share your fond memories this week of camping trips or summer camps.
