Kittatinny’s Helen Schwartz…

December 11, 2009 at 7:16 pm (Kittatinny Camp)

… sent these terrific pictures… and Klarions from those wonderful days, replete with Color Contest [not war] Fight Songs and Parodies. Here’s one:

 Bob Smith [to the tune of “Splish Splash”]

Splash, splash Bob is down at the lake, megaphone, whistle and all.

Standing mighty and poised on the deck…

Just like a statue, straight and tall.

{Whiffenpoof Song]

Oh from the bunks upon the hillside

To the Rec Hall down bellow

To the archery Range that we all love so well

You can hear the gentle echoes

Of his voice so sweet and dear

It’s our Uncle Bob resounding load and clear



These pictures really bring back memories:

Lee Herman was one of my favorite people. He died, tragically, much too early.

Alan Sacks, Art Baskin, and Craig Pearson were three of my heroes. I can’t tell you how much I miss those days.

Helen, pictured bellow, reminds me of Gidget. :-)

    Great photos – where is camp when you need it? I bet I wouldn’t even complain about wearing those green and white outfits if I could be there this summer. (still counting the days from end of August until the bus ride back to camp!)

    It really does seem like only yesterday…
