Archery Range -- 1975. BB recalls: "It was located at the bend of the campsite road (in back of old campsite 9--the one with the water pump) and used to have its own boat landing where the hapless soul who ran the thing was dropped off to serve his sentence until someone (hopefully remembered to pick him up. There was also a field archery trail set up in 1974 on the other campsite road north of the campsites."
The Camp did not run a .22 range like most camps. They had occasional "mo-skeet" and mostly just shooting demonstrations by "Trooper Alan D. Archie of the Michigan State Police".
Here is the swimming area of the waterfront from the shore. The raft is visible as well as Doctor's Island and the house and boathouse that were still there prior to fall of 1974.
Waterfront by the lodge. Color 1975 BW 1972. This was the swimming area complete with Buddy Board, dock, lifeguard towers, docks, and raft.
Two views of the same area. This is the rowboat dock quite near the swimming waterfront. In later years this was moved further down the shore but closer to the campsites to "Waterfront 2". That's a sail canoe on the left. Not an easy thing to work. Not popular with the staff or kids.
Some views of Little Africa Lake and the boats kept on it. That's Henry Weber pulling water skiers with the Dunphy in 1973. It was a wooden boat made by the Dunphy boat company. Many staff and campers learned how to ski behind that boat and its 35 horses. The old yacht was from 1970. John Lansdorf used to like to pilot the yacht around. Sold a few years later. Could this possibly be the boat that Shane restored in 76/77? The Century?
