I went to Boy Scout Camp for 5 years 1965-1969 at Camp Altaha in Stillwater, NJ
(Sussex County, on Spring Lake, now part of the Orange, NJ YM
/YWCA camp system). Part of the camp had an old apple orchard so plenty of good cooking wood. I usually enjoyed it, except when your fellow campers strung food under your bunk to attract 'critters' (racoons, possims, and worst of all skunks). We hiked, fished, shot 22's rifles on the target range, swam, got credits on our merit badges, sung campfire songs, ate 6 days at the mess hall (ahhh, remember the chop suey special dinner once a week and government peanut butter at each table). One night a week we cooked our own meal, and our troop had a large covered pavillion with a hugh fire pit. Made some good meals there. Usually someone's father was our chaparone for the week for our troop. I remember the one year I learned how to swear and used the f-word to my mom...not a good idea.
In all it was a great experience, but sadly one too difficult to do today.
