Hello All,

I have found a bunch of letters >from my father-in-law written in 1940
from Camp Horicon to his girlfriend, soon to be wife.
I am quite interested in find out out more about Camp Horicon which was
on Brant Lake in the Adirondack Mtns of NY. My father-in-law, in the
letters, mentions that he is out of college and some of the stationery
bears the letterhead of the Shoecraft Company in NY, where he was then

Does anyone know what type of camp this was and why adults would
frequent it? My in-laws were of German Jewish decent whose families
settled in the US in the 1880's. they both went to out of state
colleges and travelled a lot
