they are the gift of one generation to another,
and the extent of our care of them marks the
extent of our civilization." Arthur Doughty.

Artwork for the beginning of the "Big House,"
Camp Nor'wester, established in 1935.
Now located on Johns Island, WA.

Photo from the Camp website.

Rain is threatening to move in so let's remember the sun-filled days of the summer of all summers in 2013. These colorful shots are from "Visitor's Day," Camp Nor'wester, Johns Island, WA.      
      The beautiful photos below are thanks to Sally, Michael, and Hailey Poutiatine, two generations of camp crew, who marked the day and shared with us.
