Kittatinny Camp Siblings

May 11, 2007 at 2:43 pm (Kittatinny Camp)

A comment from Dave Kristol, my former bunkmate, reminded me of the number of campers whose siblings and cousins attended – ofttimes, year after year. My brother, and I were both “lifers.”

Here are a few names of Kittatinny siblings from the years I attended: Pearson [the late Victor Gross was their cousin], Cabot, Levin, Rait, Sacks, Tannenbaum, Shore, Bock, Weiss, Berk, Karr, Himmel, Biron, Wind, Buckman, Ehrenberg, Balaban, Lundy, Blatt, Schmuckler, Chippen, Race, Kauffman, and of course Kristol. I have a good memory, but it’s short. Help out a blogga. Add to my list.

Here’s a picture of Dave Kristol in 1961.

    Not only were there siblings over and over, some were even cousins i.e. Cabot, Levin, Brody, Berk, and a few others. Also Steve Hankin and his sister Wendy, Alexander twins and sister Mimi, and counselors Bob and Tilman Segal, Carol and Sue Hoffman , Todd and Larry Boff, Karabell, I am sure there are others that will appear.

    My brother gave me the blog’s address – I may have some Kittatinny pictures (Dick probably gave you some) but I cannot find them. I will send to you a copy of those that are NOT in your blog…if I can find them.

    Yes I remember all of the names and I have a KLC picture with Andy Goldner (tennis instructor) and Darryl Beasom from KLC 1956.

    Bob Berk adds the Lubins [Debbie and Myron] to the list of siblings. They’re his cousins on his mother’s side, says he.

    Hi, speaking of siblings my brother Bobby and I have so many great memories of camp, our father of course was Milt Forrest whom I am sure many of you remember from Nature. It was a bit different for us having our dad be at the camp, but we still lived in bunks like other campers and had the full experience.

    I’m glad you found us, Alan. I remember your dad well. If you have pictures you’d like me to post, please scan them and send them to
