Subject: Memory of St Malo

We'd love to hear from you! Please tell us your thoughts: I was at Camp Saint Malo for a week in the 60's with a dear friend who I have lost contact with. Seems like it was a rain drenched week so a lot of time was spent in the craft shop, but we enjoyed all of the other activities too. Both of us were in Catholic school and 'alter-boys' at home, so attending morning Mass was not unusual. Multiple times at the rifle and archery ranges, swimming in the icy spring water, a long hike to Thunder Lake in the rain, bonfire, leather craft, etc. are all good memories. The long trip to and from camp was very memorable too.

Some other camps are still running, it is too bad so many are not. The youth of today could all benefit from a camp experience. Learned many things at camp that church, school and home cannot teach.
