Winter wonderland at North Country Camps

Posted: January 16, 2012

It was great to see so many current campers at our reunion at Chelsea piers and had a lovely time hearing stories and reconnecting with friends. It was a fun day and only fueled our eagerness for the 2012 camp season to begin.

In the meantime, we thought we’d show you some recent pictures from around camp. The snow has finally started to fall, adding a special magic to the beauty of Lincoln and Whippoorwill.

Above you can see a picture of Saranac.

And the Junior section at Whippoorwill.

If you look carefully, you’ll recognize Kushaqua, where so many fond Work group memories have been created over the years.

And of course a picture of the lake from Birdie beach.

As the pine trees stand quietly, laced with white, we yearn for the days of summer that will be upon us in good time.

As the days get longer little by little, one can imagine being at camp with friends, taking part in activities and basking in the pools of light that trickle through the trees.

These are our ‘Dreams of Summer’.

The countdown is on!










Walking on Water!

Posted: January 4, 2012

We thought you might enjoy a few pictures of Colba and Keir Furman on a recent ice fishing trip.  Any Whip camper ought to be able to name the location!

It was a very cold day and the lake was busy making new ice.  There was an almost constant symphony of booms, pings, cracking sounds and vibrations as the ice expanded.  While the sounds were a little disconcerting, they actually mean that the ice is getting stronger and thicker.  It was about 5 inches thick on this day; plenty for walking on.

The fish proved elusive on this trip, but the boys will keep trying and we will find them eventually.  Perhaps they were all hanging out at Lincoln on this day…

We’ll be enjoying a different kind of fun on the ice this Saturday at our annual camp reunion in NYC.  It’s time to catch up with some of your friends from camp and it sounds like there will be a good turnout of campers and counselors.  We hope to see you all there!


Happy New Year!
