Thread Name: 2002 - So how was Camp Harmony?
Subject: RE: So how was Camp Harmony?
Camp Harmony is held at a Boy Scout camp facility in the redwoods on Highway 9, just north of Boulder Creek in the Santa Cruz mountains. Sleeping cabins hold about ten people and some cabins are replete with bathrooms and heat. Numerous workshop and arts spaces, a lare dining hall, a concert room and a wood-floored dance hall. Meals are prepared by Debby (Ma) McClatchey - I believe she said this was her 27th year as camp cook.
The concerts were indeed exceptionally fine this year. It was nice to hear many younger campers taking part as well. Saturday night's concert included two a cappella performances by teenagers (well, I'm not certain how old they actually were but they were very young). Tuesday evening's concert included a family of mom and her three sons (the boys ranged, I would say, from maybe ten to thirteen years old). The two younger boys played recorder and fiddle and the older boy was lead singer. Mom was the guitar player. They sang a wonderful song about radio-active frogs.
