Fond memories as a camper 62-67 and a waterfront counselor 70-71.
Happy to see the camp continues in the beauty of Western Massachusettes.
Cheers all -

I found out about this site today and it’s brought back so many memories.
There couldn’t have been a better camp than the one we had.  I thought it didn’t exist anymore
and it was just a memory passing . I attended camp from 1958 to 1963.  I can remember begging my mom to let me come home. 
After I was there for about two weeks I begged her to let me stay for the second semester.
I can still see the staff as I read about them.  The competition, the laughs and even getting
“the paddle” from Coach Fisher when I was in the Junior unit.  The chanting in the mess hall,
waking up early so I could be the first at the flagpole to raise the flag with Larry Mazor.
Being a little hypochondriac and going to the nurse’s in the morning.  The smell of the mosquito repellant
and having to use the greenies (those smells I could do without), the inspections, learning how to swim, sail and canoe.
I even remember when it hailed one day when I was in Cabin 10, playing tetherball in the midget unit. 
I was so proud to have my name on a few plaques.When I was a senior I wanted all the blue ribbons and
I was so mad that I couldn’t beat Jeff Diamond.  The funniest thing was when we had our Dads there,
I was playing goalie in a soccer game, my Dad dribbled up, kicked the ball and it hit me flush on the face. 
We all had to laugh.  I could go on and on.  Unbelievably I still have all my awards and they look brand new
as if they have been put in a time capsule.  They have been along with all the great experiences I had at Camp Frank A. Day. 
Even then I felt like one of the luckiest people in the world and I was.
All this time has passed but it’s crystal clear.
