A Manual for Operating a Girls' Summer Camp, 1955

Camp Craft: A Manual for Leaders Responsible for Organization of Camp Craft in the Summer Camp (1955)


Attending Joy Camps on Lake Raymond, near Hazelhurst in Oneida County, Wisconsin, was a life-changing experience for Sue Ann Hackett. This textbook, Camp Craft: A Manual for Leaders Responsible for Organization of Camp Craft in the Summer Camp (Minneapolis, 1955), was written by the camps' owner, Barbara Ellen Joy. It explains the pedagogical and social goals of girls' camps and their role in the education of young women. An album of official photographs from Joy Camps and two boxes of papers and scrapbooks collected by Hackett 1949-1951 are included elsewhere at Turning Points in Wisconsin History.
