Home Letter Heading


VOLUME 42               May 1968                 Pre-Camp No. 2

FINAL INSTRUCTIONS: This is the last Homeletter before camp starts and is full of very important information. Please read carefully.

RETURN CARD: When you have read this letter, it is essential that you, return the Card at once. The information is vital to us. We shall have to phone you if the CARD is not here well before camp commences.

SUPERVISED TRAIN AND BUS TRIP: This is only at the beginning and end of camp; there is Supervised trip at the halfway point in camp. Boys coming at any other time, including the second half, will need to arrange their own transportation. The supervised train group will leave from Washington, D.C. on the morning of Saturday, June 29, 1968 at the below times:
    Leave Washington Train #17O(The Colonial) at 7:00 a.m.(EDT)
    Leave Baltimore         “       “         at 7:45 a.m.(EDT-)
    Leave Philadelphia “-“                    at 9:15 a.m.(EDT)
    Arrive New York Penn. Station             at 10:55 a.m.(EDT)
The means of transportation from New York to Hyde Bay will be decided upon as soon as we know the number of boys coming up from all the southern points, and we will send out subsequent information to those concerned. Transportation from New York to Hyde Bay will be provided.
Please be at the designated place of departure at least one-half hour before the scheduled departure.

TICKETS: From the South, buy R.R. Tickets (round trip, if desired) to N.Y, City on the Penn. R.R. Bus fare will be taken care of by us and charged to the boy on his incidental account.

BAGGAGE: All baggage of boys coming by train and/or bus must be expressed by Railway Express to Cooperstown, N.Y. Trunks must be sent at least two weeks or more in advance to insure it being there at camp when your son arrives, Railway Express service, at best, is very slow and inefficient.

MEALS: The train group will be properly supervised and provided for at the noon meal. Boys leaving from N.Y. should eat lunch before boarding the bus. Boys coming by car may have lunch as well as supper at camp, if their arrival is so designated on the CARD. The camp noon meal is served at 1:15 p.m. Supper is served at 6:30 p.m.

AUTO: From the West, leave the N.Y. Thruway at Herkimer. Go through Mohawk over the hill to Route #20. Left on #20 to East Springfield. Right on East Lake Road to Hyde Bay Camp.
From the South and East, leave the N.Y. Thruway at the Northway Exit to Route #20. At #20, turn right to East Springfield and then left on East Lake Road to Hyde Bay Camp.
