Summer Camp at Twin Lakes, Washington was a camp to remember. In spite of rain in more than sufficient quantities a most wonderful time was had by all. Seven days of rain and seven days of sunshine kept the camp in high spirits.

The days of sunshine revealed a beautiful Canadian Rocky type of scenic beauty, with enough mountains to "drive a mountain climber crazy" as one energetic and enthusiastic climber expressed it.

The days of rain brought forth all of the talent in the group. Kay Fahy produced fun for the juniors, taking them into one of the large tents, warmed by 2 Coleman lanterns, they were entertained with games, cards, reading, and on the very rainiest day of all Kay and Myrtle Smith together with four of the tallest men holding a large plastic sheet over the actors for a protection from the driving rain, performed Pokey Huntus & John Smith to the merriment of all. The President's Tea was treated to a second performance of the same play which Mary Castelloe had brought to camp.

Keeping the fires going was task which called for the ingenuity of all in camp. A boat pump used as a bellows was needed to keep the fire in the cookstove burning until, finally, the camp committee went forth to various and sundry places and brought dry wood.

Mount Shuksan and Mount Baker were the center of the pictures takers delight but inclement weather kept the climbers at bay.
