On August 5, 1971 48 bubbly campers departed for their adventure to Watkins Glen. Our first stop was Corning Glass Works. At this most fascinating attraction, Camp Ranger took a tour which included a museum, a demonstration of the blowing of glass, and then finally a mass rush to the souvenir shop. We then moved into the motel where we changed into our bathing suits for a co-ed swim. That night, half of the group went to see the movie "Love Story," and the other half went to play miniature golf. The following morning we were up bright and early in order to fit in all of the great things to come.
With the competent assistance of Aunt Ruth and Cappy, we made our way through the trails of Watkins Glen. The campers and counselors were exposed to the true wonders of nature. We then hit the old local souvenir shop. Later, we were off to our next and final destiny. We arrived at Cornell University just in time for lunch. We ate and some of the campers again went souvenir hunting, but like all good things, the trip had now come to an end. We headed back to Ranger, and was really glad to get back home.

This year the senior girls, senior boys and office boys had the privilege of being accommodated in the beautiful, luxurious Yorktowne Hotel. Before we arrived in Gettysburg, the group visited the Hershey factory in Hershey, Pennsylvania. After touring the factory, we were given free Hershey (not Nestles) chocolate bars. After dinner we went to this out-of-sight shoe house and had do it yourself sundaes for dessert. They were outrageous. That night we saw the movie Willard. The next day at 7:00 A.M. we arose to ringing telephones. Breakfast was at 7:30 and from there we went to Gettysburg, where we visited the battlefields and various museums. That night we went roller skating and had a pizza party. It was a far out party.
We left the hotel the following morning after breakfast. We proceeded to the Amish country and learned the customs and ways of the people.
Thanks to our flipped out chaperones, Arlene Putterman, Karen Preminger, Richie Marks, Jeff Ruskin and of course Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Turner, we all had a great time.
