Camp History Book 2020 Edition!

More than 300 copies of the 2006 and 2010 editions of the camp history book, The Living Legends of Camp Lowden, have now been sold. Each edition has sold out, with a demand strong enough for me to have additional copies printed. The comments and feedback that I have received have been wonderful, ranging anywhere from "excellent" to "outstanding." New information continues to come in on a regular basis, and some of the stories that I have received over the years are absolutely captivating.

Even though the camp's 80th Anniversary is still a couple years away, I have been working on an updated edition of the history book, and I would like your help!
