My last year as a kounselor (1960) I earned $250. I believe my last year as a kamper cost my father $525.

Does anyone remember how much it cost for the summer in the 50,s. And how much the young kounselers were paid

For some ungodly reason and out of the blue, I recently thought of my two years at Kamp (1945 & 1946); and went to the iNet finding this site. I was brought up in West Hartford, CT and presently live in Newport Beach, CA. In doing some searching, I noticed another Kamper with an email address close to me and found Robert Cohen in Laguna Beach. Small world! We have been communicating and will be meeting in the near future. Finally I found a large photo of the 1946 Kampers and staff (also posted on this site). Anyone else live in Orange County, CA? Have a great summer, one and all!

I just learned of the passing of Ted Bromwell , counselor at Kamp for many years. Ted Abromovitz , later Bromwell was a retail advisor, First at Litt Brothers Philadelphia. Then he became advisor to Frank Chase who took him with him to Canada when he became President of a company there. Then when Mr Chase became President of Kaufmann’s Pittsburgh he took Ted there. He then was assistant to many Presidents. He retired ion 85? And entered the commercial photography business. He traveled to Germany and China where the cameras were made. He was very successful. He would have been 91 yesterday.

I remind Chuck every time I see him of the Saturday night about 1 A.M. while I was visiting my son. Several counselors were "preparing" the field (Home Plate) for the next day. I was hysterical laughing and commented on how long it had been since had been involved. Chuck turned to me and said "Nostalgia Nehru?".

Thanks Chuck--brings back distinct memories--it's a miracle Harry Zavacky never burned down the tentline Dave

What would KK Counselors have used as an alternate to gasoline and urine? https://www.si.com/extra-mustard/2019/04/08/monday-hot-clicks-baseball-field-ridgefield-gasoline-fire-destroyed-video

Does anyone know a good immigration lawyer in the western part of CT? Need help getting my wife here from South America. Thanks

Recently moved to Southbury CT, it is about 20 minutes east of Danbury. Might there be some Kampers in the Area?

Good to hear that the Rabbit is still well and hopping!

Chas January 5, 2019 09:57:12 (EDT)

Alan Weill is still alive. Having lunch in Va. Beach. Rabbit would not be anchoring the Apache but doing great.

While reading the book, The Game by George Howe Colt (about the celebrated Harvard-Yale 1968 football game, I was startled to read a description about "a formerly skinny little kid from Harrisburg with thick black glasses who was desperate to prove that he was one of the guys." The author describes in vivid detail (over many pages) the saga of this former high school quarterback who ultimately becomes the very popular star safety at Yale. He also mentions a setback in this player's career when he broke his left wrist at a "sleepaway camp" (spelled incorrectly with a "c"). The player's name? Joseph Phillip ("J.P.") Goldsmith. Dave

I think that some of the other people in Jerry Adler's 1953 still picture include Peter Greenberg,second from the left, Dave Wolk, third from the right, and Roger Thanhauser on the extreme right. If I am wrong, please correct me. Kee Kee Wah,

Very sad to hear of the passing of fellow Harrisburg Kamper and good friend Randy Coplin. Rest in peace my friend. https://www.behnerfh.com/notices/JayRandy-Coplin?fbclid=IwAR2JS1RKOYEkVcNQbyYwbJ9Hi5Fmb0MdAOJt_XyM9zvJOwolSOw131YjzLs

Living at present 15 a minute drive from the Pittsburgh synagogue murders, and with Fred, Bill, and me growing up a frequent 5 minute bike ride from there, this made sense to me on Saturday is my navigational buoy..."Let us not seek the Republican answer nor the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future." -- John F. Kennedy...Far to disturbing to even be surreal.

Bob "Tiger" Levy October 28, 2018 13:27:09 (EDT)

I have pretty-well stopped looking at TV news. But I saw just enough about the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting to make me think of the many kampers who were from Pittsburgh. To them--too all--I send hopes that they, their families, their friends are safe and at peace.

Click to watch this entertaining KK video made by Jerry Adler '44-'53. He also sent us this picture taken in 1953:

In this photo, we see an Emmy Award winning comedy writer (Lee Kalcheim), a respected drama professor at UC Irvine (BS Cohen), and a Hollywood producer/director (Jerry Adler). At far left is Saaaaam Straus who also had a long career in broadcasting. (Can anyone help identify the other people in this picture?)

Thanks, Jerry!
