"For the casual reader this document would appear comprehensive but for the new Director of Camping it is but a momentary orientation or covering sketch to the work and concerns ahead."- outgoing Camp Stephens Camp Director Doug McEwen 1970
Doug McEwen put together this 54-page document that outlined the role of the camp director for incoming director Punch Jackson. It not only instructed Punch what he should know about filling Doug's shoes, but explains the overall philosophy of camp and its programs.
More important, Doug put on paper what a new director needs to know about the people working under him or her.
What Doug wrote so many years ago also offers a unique history of the island and camp.
And, of course, insight into some of the people who made it all happen.
Punch gave this to me at the 50th trail anniversary and I now share it with you. Download have a have a peek.
Merry Christmas, Bruce
