Does anyone have info on a Camp O WanYa Kay (sp) that was on the lake in the 50's. I went there for a week and had a grand time as a youngster. I know the camp was still functioning in the 1960's but just wonder when it closed down and why.

If anyone posting on here attended that camp they will remember the camp song that I still remember after all these centuries. Thanks

Talking Camp

That could be the name of the camp. I was only 6 when I went there so I probably didn't get the correct pronunciation of the place. I know it was on Lake Bomoseen and we walked down a hill to swim.Any other info on it?

Thanks

E-Wen-Akee is part of Eckerd Youth Alternatives' outdoor therapeutic program for troubled teens.

EYA Locations Map — Rhode Island, Vermont and New Hampshire (http://www.eckerd.org/map/ri_vt_nh.html - broken link)

My guess is that it was bought up by the program after the campground closed down. Sorry I don't know much more than that.

I can say that I myself have very fond memories of camping during summer school vacations. If it is the same camp, it's good to know that these teens are getting an opportunity to enjoy it.

Smile camp

I agree with you. The camp I went to wasn't for teens in trouble. So I bet my camp was bought out like you said. Thanks for the info
