I attended Camp Townshend from 1955 -1960. What a wonderful time! I attended with some of my GS Troup, 86 from Hamden,CT. I loved every moment, including those dark walks to the latrine at night with a buddy...the early morning wakeup to jump into your clothes and get to dining hall for your " tweenie" duties. I still remember our campfires and songs including, "WE WELCOME YOU TO TOWNSHEND CAMP" I was so sad that when my daughter was ready to attend GS Camp, that Townshend was no longer open. She did attend Camp Laurel in Lebanon , CT and had a wonderful time. Thank you Girl Scouts......a very special and meaningful part of my life. The skills I learned have helped me through my life.
