attended camp 1960 &1961

I happened on this site quite by accident and what a wonderful experience it has been. Thanks to those old staff photos I have relived the incomparable weeks I spent at Camp Hinds. In particular I remember those roaring campfires and the old songs we used to sing under the blazing stars. The stuff boyhood dreams are made of. To the folks like Frank Maguire, Charlie Berry, Wally Hayes and all the rest of you.....thanks for the memories.

Went to camp in the 1970's as

I have been a fan of Camp William Hinds since I was a boy. I still remember doing a late Fall camp out with Troop 4 from Portland at Tenny campsite. We had to bring our own food, build our own fires and cook our own meals. I was a new scout and was very excited the first morning, so I was up and had my fire built using only the two matches we were allowed. As the other older boys awoke, they were impressed with my fire starting ability and allowed me to build their fires. It wasn't till a couple of years later that I realized they just didn't want to have to get out of bed in the cold and start their fire. It's ok, it created a great memory that has kept me going back to Hinds for almost forty years!

Great job Dean, I just spent about an half an hour going through this and loved what I saw. My first time to Camp Hinds was in the early 70's, the place has so many memories. I still have some of my scouting stuff from a young cub to boy scout, books, patches, neckerchief slides etc;

camped there back in the 60's

Had a blast camping there in the site called SIPLE ! It was an important stepping stone in life to get you started in the right direction. I would love to visit some time and ponder over old memories . Thanks for the web site, good job!

I'm excited to have found this website with all of the old photos of my grandparents. I spent a couple weekends at camp hinds in the early 80s and became friends with Erica. My sister was friends with Brenda. There's a plaque in the the Dining Hall with all of our names on it. My favorite place was the tree stump that Chief Kitpoo carved into a chair. Sadly enough, that tree rotted away many years ago, but I have always wanted to see more photos of my favorite indian chief. Do you have any?

Dean, it was an honor to meet you at Wood Badge this past weekend, the songs you sang brought back many fond memories of my time in Scouting and at Camp Hinds. I appreciate what you have done and continue to do. You have made a positive impact on so many people and we appreciate it. "I can Bear no more, So I am going to work my tic-ket if I can."

I learned of this site yesterday at the Eagle Scout Gathering. Thanks to the staff for a great time. I have enjoyed the pictures on this site of my many friends, of old, in Scouting. If you remember me, I would love to hear from you. My email address is rhayden61(at)juno. I can also be reached on Skype and Facebook.
Yours in Scouting,

Camped with troop 80 in early

Recently attended the Eagle Scout Gathering at the camp. Had a chance to donate some old pictures my father Phil Cash had taken back in the 60's era. Thanks to the staff for a nice outing.

Good Morning,

My Uncle (Charles Dinsmore, whom was also a staff member in 1962) had been visiting your camp recently and he found an old staff photo on your site. He forwarded to me because there was a picture of my father.

In your online photo, 1960, "Friend of Hinds Staff Photo", middle row, 3rd from right, is my Dad, William J. Dinsmore III. Right now you have a "?" for him, so I thought I would fill in the blank.

My father, now retired from schoolteaching and the military, went on to become a Lt. Col in the US Army and Vietnam veteran. He flew helicopters. He was not only a military educator (taught flight school), but a scholastic educator for more then 25 years. I thought this information would be good background for your camp and also because I'm proud of my Dad.
