I attended the camp from 1976 until the mid 1980s both as a first aid officer & a leader mainly on camps 3 & 4 & had a great time doing so.I still remain in touch with some of the people I met there & only wish I could become reacquainted with the camp in some way.I really do hope it keeps going because I know the kids enjoy it very much & also I saw many who were set on the right track in life because of the camp & the love & affection they received from the leaders & staff.my best wishes go to the current staff,keep up the great work you all do.best wishes,
Shane O'toole/Minchington
