I still remember the good times I had at Camp. I still talk to old staff members. I will someday, return to see what camp looks like.

Program Director 1978

My summer at Hinds, a return to Scouting after 10 years, was a great experience with George, Phil, Ken, Ray, Steve, Mike, Louie and the rest of our staff. And my special treat of being able to play with the jazz band at the Amherst Music Camp around the corner. I was to return in 1979 but Bud Jeffries convinced me to be the Base Director at Matagamon that next summer so I did not return. Now 35+ years later I am back in scouting with two Eagle Scout sons, a trip to Philmont in 2014, a new crew to help develop, and a staff position at National Jamboree on the horizon. I hope to be at the Camp Hinds 90th this summer.

Loved this camp and still do. Ran Chipmunk Point for three summers, worked on the waterfront with Reg Harper, Camp Directors were Wes Wrignt (whom I followed to his new job at Quincy Council), Dave Jettinghoff.) Lodge Chief, Vigil Honor (#3 in the Lodge behind Frank Bailey and Clyde Nason, Jr.)
Very excited for a 90th reunion.
This site is awesome and definitely brings back wonderful memories. By the way, the sailboats when I was there were lightning class and very fast. We raced Timanus and Hawthorne.

Stayed several summers as a scout

Fond memories, shooting was great, coo beads, archery, overnight trips, campfires, and making plaques in the mess hall. Great times keep it going.

First time visiting the website. Just got back from taking my 10yr old to a Cub Scout reservation outside of Atlanta, GA. Made me think of the fond memories of Camp Hinds. Saw a lot of familiar names and pictures on the site. I look forward to taking more time and posting some pictures and contributing.

Pete Knudsen
attended 1952-1955

Although I lived in New Jersey, I went to Camp Hinds with my brother every summer for 8 weeks between 1952- 1955 Great times! Part of the adventure was taking the train out of NYC through Boston (north and south stations) to Portland and then a bus to Raymond. I believe the director was Wes Wesley, Spud Nason worked the crafts (gimp lanyards and stuff,) his son Spudling helped there. Bobo Judson worked the boats/sailboats. I stayed in the Byrd, Peary, Mac Arthur and Mac Millan camping areas. I remember getting kidded about my "funny NY accent." and horseshoe competing daily with a kid (last name Adams) who was from Cape Elizabeth. Lots more to remember of fun filled summers. I visited one September in the mid-90's still looked the same. I hope it has remained that way. Thanks for the great website.

Just found this page and have many fond memories of my time at Camp Hinds. Received me Eagle there in 1950; had some great time with OA and being on the staff at Troop Byrd with Dewie Trefethen. Dan Johnson and Mel Williams were two of my heros.

Enjoyed reading about all the great time people have had at this camp. Hope many more families can build memories at Camp Hinds. Love looking at the old photos.

CIT 1968,Staff 1969 & 1971

I became aware of this site after a recent visit to Camp Hinds on 08-16-2013. This being my first visit back to Camp Hinds in over 27 years. The ole Camp has seen some changes but it was basically the same. The small museum inside the ole Wreck Hall was really something with some of the pictures from when I was on staff. The dining hall with all the plaques was impressive especially when I found our CIT plague from 2nd session 1968. Dean, you have done a great job with this site. I have enjoyed it immensely and plan to return often.
