      Hi Gary,
      I remember you from KLC My father is Bernie Kirsner, boys head counselor for 9 years. I was probably 4-12 years old during those years but I seem to remember you had a very cute son Nathan. And I also remember that you had a boa constrictor that you fed mice to, I think it had a boy’s name. Hopefully I am not crazy but I do vaguely remember these things. I hope you are doing well. It;s been many years. I also remember your brother (?) Jay who worked at camp also. Were you related to Henry Moss?

        Susan, would you pass on best wishes to your dad on behalf of “Boy’s camp.” Chuck Smerin was a hard act to follow, and Boiney did it well.

      I’m so tripped that more and more KLCers keep finding this thread!

    I was one of the campers that carved this totem pole. I was at KLC from, if I remember correctly 1967 to 1969. I remember Bernie Kirsner and his family. I was part of the rowdy bunk, the middle one on the right side looking towards the rec hall. Nice to see that KLC’rs all did well in life and I was amazed to find this site.

    uhm Let me just say, thanks. This is quite funny. My brother somehow found this blog and passed it on to me. I remember Kittatiny quite well. We should start a facebook page for alums.
