Boys' Camp at The Shades, 1916

From June 20 to 30, 1916, any boy who was a member of the local Y.M.C.A., 12 years or over, could attend the Annual Boys' Camp. The camp was under the direction of Boys' and Physical Departments of the Y.M.C.A. Activities included swimming, fishing, baseball, camp fires, and Bible study. It was no easy vacation, however, because reveille was at 6:30 am, and lights out came at 9:30 pm! The boys were asked to act like Gentlemen at all times.

You can read the entire four-page brochure (.pdf) as well as the camp application.
