Junior Camp News

The Lower Camp opened on a hot, breezy day yesterday, June 28th, with 16 eager and active campers. Early arrivals began on Friday with veteran campers Todd Pardun, Timmy Joyce and Jeff Marcus. Mark Tabor and David Hunt were first to arrive on Saturday Morning, and signaled the beginning of a long train of campers coming in from all parts of the country and abroad. By dinner time most campers had arrived and were busy getting settled and to know each other during games or in the unit.

This years youngest boys, (formerly called Juniors) are living in what used to be the Intermediate Camp area. The units for the entire boys camp are blended from the youngest to the oldest, with the youngest starting in the Lower Camp. With this new arrangement, campers will be able to have activities with various age groups, as their skills and development warrant.

From the Director

Dear Friends:

After all these months of planning, preparing and anticipating, the 1969 camping season is here, and we want to welcome you all to Camps Susquehanna and Equinita. This first issue of the camp newspaper, the "Lookout" is an integrated issue, containing news items of Camp Susquehanna and Camp Equinita, due to the time factor. Camp Equinita will have its own newspaper in the future.

You counselors have been working out plans for the program for this summer and our calendar is beginning to show a fun-filled adventuresome eight weeks of camping. There are canoe trips, canoe races, horseshows and horseback trips, parades, hikes, contests, games, stage shows, and just not enough time to list all of them, or to get a more descriptive outline of them at this time. It will really be a full summer.

If you should have any ideas or suggestions for new activities, be sure to write them out and put them in the suggestion box located at the canteen. We are always glad to talk over the program with you, and to improve it by your suggestions if at all possible.

In the meantime, have a great time and thoroughly enjoy the summer at Equinita and Susquehanna.

We are really looking forward to spending the next several weeks with you.
