On August 11th the boys and girls of the Inter division visited the Catskill Game Farm. They left camp directly after breakfast and spent 2 hours pleasantly on the bus trip by singing songs and talking.

At 1:00 they arrived at that Game Farm and divided themselves into groups.

There were many animals for the children to see. They were of all different sizes, shapes, and colors. A unique attraction at Catskill Game Farm is its open animal pens. The animals were allowed to roam freely around the grounds and the children can feel a lamb's wool, touch a deer's antlers, and watch a mule eat.

Many of the Inters completed the afternoon with a visit to the amusement area, a snack, and the souvenir.

Then they boarded the bus and went merrily on their way to camp.

On August 1st bunks 12, 13, 14 and several senior girls went on a trip to Gettysburg Pa. We left at approximately 9:00 a.m. and took a Short Line bus with air conditioning.

It was a long seven hour bus ride, but it was worth it as we finally arrived at the Yorktowne Hotel. We got out of the bus and brought our bags to our rooms by elevator. We were amazed to find that each room at a radio, T.V., heating, air conditioning, and everything you could think of. After exploring all the luxuries of our rooms, we changed into bathing trunks and went swimming in a nearby pool.

The next day, we had breakfast and then went to Gettysburg, where we followed a rainy tour of the battlefields and visited several museums. Everybody had a great time that day. At night we had a luxurious dinner.

The final day, are our way back to Camp Ranger, we toured the Amish Country and we had lunch at a restaurant.

We all were very sorry that we had to leave.
