07-21-18 Winston Wood - This article ran in The Wall Street Journal yesterday and sadly it marks how far things have changed for kids at camp since we went to Hyde Bay in the happy long ago. In an age of trigger warnings, helicopter parents, etc., I suppose that it was meant to be, though. But I just can't get my mind around the thought of a sensitive and sympathetic Doug Coupe or supportive and caring Jocko McQuilkin.

"The New Camp Councilor is a Therapist"

07/22/18 Larry Pickett - We could have used a bit of counseling attention for bulling and being unkind to kids with differences at Hyde Bay but this describes a whole different set of issues.  The screen addiction and apparent increase in medication use is amazing.  As is the cost of a summer.  M\The level of medication for ADHD in a non-school setting is concerning.  In my experience, working in the schools, many kids on meds at school did not need them on weekends.

07/22/19 Jennifer (aka Jeffie) Downs - Wow, that's depressing! Geez.

07/23/18 Doug Cornish - Thank you for the article.

07/23/18 - Doug (aka Plop) Coupe - Steve, many thanks to Winston and you for sending along copy of article. A the risk of sounding “older than dirt” all of us who had the good fortune to attend Hyde Bay back in the day of the “Turtle Derby” and “8” Regatta” I would reflect on the following.

Ours was certainly a simpler time coupled with an innocence no longer in existence. We were consumed by the opportunity to have good clean fun(for the most part), many solid core values, and the opportunity to learn what independence was all about at a very young age. These wonderful life lessons which were the cornerstone of our Hyde Bay experience, have made, and continue to make, for a wonderful and memorable life.



06/01/18 - Hyde Bay's 50th-year-since-closing reunion (Durbar) will be held at the Otasego Resort Hotel Thursday June 20, 2019 (next year!) through Sunday June 22, 2019.

03/12/18 - Colin Murray died on March 26th, 2018. Colin was a brilliant man and an excellent writer. You will be missed, Colin. Colin's wife and daughter were with him when he died. Colin fought bravely with Primary Progressive MS for 33-years. He even made his own concoctions to battle the pain, to much success.
