Below are some interesting things I found out about camp in 1983 after reading some old newsletters.
|Sailing in the 80s. So many different boats!|
A Sail Racing Clinic was held in the summer of 1983. There was a prerequisite in that campers must have received their Mate to attend. For six days, sailors would sail all afternoon in a concentrated program. Racing and theory were taught.
|Couldn’t find the 80s Ancient Greek Days, so TBT to Final
The all-camp special day that took place once per session was called “Ancient Greek Days” in 1983. Events planned were: chariot races, pentathlon, Greek dancing, a tribute to Zeus and other gods and goddesses, and Greek food (pig roast). Campers were told to bring an old sheet to make a toga.
As of March 1983, the second session had more campers registered from St. Louis, MO than any other city. Des Moines, IA was in second and Minneapolis, MN & Suburbs was in third!
Where are our second session St. Louis campers? Why do you think so many St. Louis kids LOVE Foley and the second session? I bet everyone was calling it “Soda” that session and not “Pop”!
Were you at camp in the 80s? Were you at Ancient Greek Days and have a photo to share? We’d love to see it! Tell us your CF memories for TBT!
