Sad to report the passing on 8/13 of my cousin, Michael "Harrisburg" Coleman. The last conversation I had with him was about Kamp and especially former Kampers. It was one of his favorite topics. I will post a link to his obituary when it is published.

a friend of mine asked me to list 18 large photos of camp KEWANEE counselors and some kids activities for him on ebay and while looking up the history I found this site and didn't know if its any interest for you. They are from the late 40's to mid 50's and are 8 x 10" and 11" 14"

Now that we have moved from Pittsburgh to Davidson, NC, Marilyn and I figured it time today to check out how my KK canoeing skills survived after being in storage for 60 years. My J-stroke still works well. No chewing tobacco spitting from the stern is allowed by Town environmental laws. Come and... (more)

Click here to see the Final Knocker article from 1968 about the kamp meets at Susquehannock (two of them there) and Camp St. Andrews. There are probably articles in the 1969 and 1970 Final... (more)

Thanks, Steve Buch. The Susquehanna River is an obvious candidate, but the problem is (a) Tunkhannock, PA is where it's closest to La Plume, PA (15-20 minutes), but the river is barely more than a creek at that location, not the big mother of a river I remember from an away meet we had in 1969. On... (more)

Re: Bill Lenihan's question, I went to KK way before you, but the two camp meets I remember were Susquehanna and Susquehannock.

We all remember the Black vs. Red intra-squad competitions every summer, but there were also one or two one-day quasi-Olympic-like competitions against other nearby sleepaway camps. Does any 1968-70 Kamper remember (or has the memorabilia to research)
(a) the names of those other... (more)

My brother Donn Rosensweig - victorious Red Team captain and Honor Plaque 1961 - passed away on Dec. 9. He regularly attended KK reunions and always enjoyed reminiscing about his 7 summers in LaPlume.
On December 9, 2020, Cantor Donn Roger Rosensweig... (more)

Had a nice visit today from Alan Monheit who just moved to Bucks County from Long Island. It was great catching up after 58 years! We may have seen each other at a reunion or two, but this was our first chance to chat one on one. Kee Kee Wah!

I have just added another section to the website - the Knocker Arkhive. I've scanned and uploaded 104 issues of Final Knockers, Final Banquets, Kewanee Kouriers and more, for a total of 1589 pages of Kewanee history! Enjoy! Problems or suggestions, let me... (more)

As world events become more intense, our thoughts return to Kewanee and our summers in tents.

I'm sorry to report that we've lost another loyal KK alum, David Breakstone ('49-'54).

Serving as captain of the 1954 Red Team at Kamp Kewanee was one of his proudest memories.

Has anyone thought about doing a reunion on the internet?
Right now my High school class of 1962 is putting a ZOOM meeting together. We started collecting names 24 hours ago and right now we are up to 37. This includes people from the United States, and the Pacific Rim. With everyone having... (more)

Thinking about all KK'ers hoping you are safe and well. Wish Mary Wren were around to solve this medical problem--although a bit more difficult than cracked toes. All of us must exercise patience so that we don't become patients. Dave Rutstein

Jon (Moose) Adland made these remarks at the 2019 Reunion:

Kamp Kewanee 2019

It is hard to imagine for me that in 2020 it will have been 50 years since my final summer at Kamp Kewanee. The images are still so real in my mind: the tents, the mess hall, the flag raising, inspection, all... (more)

Thanks Mike for the kind words and you nailed what the reunion means to so many of us. KK will always be a part of us no mater where our journeys take us. I hope we can do this again even as the numbers continue to diminish slightly.

Stay safe everyone.
