I’m just back from CampWoods Grounds in Ossining, where a century ago thousands of Methodists and other Protestants would gather each summer to hear preachers and pray several times a day.
Boy, they must have been hot.
I have before me a post card written in 1911 from the camp by Ethel A. Uhlson to Ellen Erickson in Wilmington, Del. She wrote: “How lovely this camp is. You can not imagine until you have been here.”
Another fellow wrote: “Dear wife, We arrived safe and having a good time. Henry”
It was a different time.
I’ll be writing more about CampWoods Grounds — including who lives there now — for LoHud/The Journal News over the next week or so.
