Lou Moskowitz gave this speech at the September 2019 Reunion: Kamp Kewanee was founded in 1916, in the middle of World War 1, five score and three years ago. Thatís 103 years for those that think that ďscoreĒ means something else. When Lincoln delivered his Gettysburg address, in 1863,... (more)

At the time I went to KK I was known as Ernest Schlosberg, my mother's married name. I went to one reunion, which was in the year that the camp closed, but can't remember exactly when that was. What year did the camp close? I walked away from that reunion with the 1947 plaque, the ones which... (more)

Rick Vatz gave this speech at the September 2019 Reunion: My Kewanee -- Rick Vatz Greetings and Kee Kee Wah to all of you. This would have been a one-hour speech, but Bugs Melnikoff told me earlier that I could not repeat anything I had said at earlier reunions, so now it is about 5... (more)

Does anyone from the 50's era remember if HC - Frank Dolbear was a football coach at Dallas High School? If I remember right he had a son Trenny(?) who was at Kamp.
Thanks

Sorry I missed the reunion. Just too much going on. Downsizing at age 70 is not easy! Anyway I came across three LP records. I think they came from my cousin Michael "Harrisburg" Coleman. One has a yellow label that just has Kamp Kewanee printed on it and "Bob Stephens" written in script. The... (more)

Hello to everyone. What a great reunion, reconnecting with so many fellow kampers. Thanks to the organizers and speakers for the many amusing stories from our past. And Happy New Year to all. Please stay healthy so we can all see each other at the next reunion.

While the marionetteer in my video is not me (could be Gordy), Lew cast me as Dorothy and that sparked my career in entertainment (35 years). He also mentored my teaching (29 years so far).Thanks,Lew and Kamp Kewanee!

I just caught up with the KK Knocker. So sad to hear of Pete Freidmanís passing. My condolences, Steve. Also, the video of Doc Kleinís memorial was a great tribute to him.

Sorry that I wonít be able to make the reunion - will be in Shanghai.

THE NEWS ABOUT THE PASSING OF PETE FRIEDMAN IS TRULY SAD. HE WAS A GOOD GUY AND I WILL MISS HIS PRESENCE AT THE REUNION.

I've received sad news from Steve Friedman '55 that his brother, Pete "the Bull" Friedman, passed away on June 30 in Chicago. Pete was a kamper, and then a kounselor, from 1952-1961, and was a two-time Honor Plaque winner. He attended every reunion. Our condolences to the Friedman family.

I am the daughter of (the late) Jerry Lowengard, dedicated Kewanee Kamper in the '40s and sister of Henry and Ben, more notorious than dedicated in the '70s, I believe. As I am sorting through family papers I have come across a number of things relating to Kamp Kewanee. Is there an archive... (more)
