Fresh Air Camp1
In 1916 For
It was back in 1919 that Lewis C.
Reimann, '16, star Wolverine tackle
of 1916,-4nd Thomas S. Evans, gen-
eral secretary of the Student Chris-;
tian Association, met on the Univer-
sity campus.
Andit was a fortunate meeting for
the underprivileged children of Ann
Arbor, Detroit, Jackson and Flint,
for two years later the efforts of the
two men resulted in the foundation
of the first Fresh Air Camp for under-
privileged children.
That first camp, with its handful
of tents and a few scanty acres out-
side of Port Huron was a far cry from
"Der Tag" is Friday. On that
day student volunteers will solicit
contributions to send underpriv-
ileged boys to the University
Fresh Air Camp this summer.
the modern, extensive camp now lo-
cated on the shores of Lake Patterson.
More than 130 boys enjoyed 10 days
at the camp that first summer. Next
year the camp was transferred to
Moon Lake in Livingston County,
and 300 boys were sent there. The
camp was run for four periods of
10 days each, with 75 boys cared for}
during each period.!
In the fall of 1923 Marvin Ives
and H. B. Earhart, prominent Ann

Was Founded
Local Children
Arbor residents, contributed between
them $12,000, with which the present
site of 180 acres, located on Patter-
son Lake, was purchased.
Thus has grown the University
Fresh Air Camp, from a few closely
grouped tents into a 180-acre institu-
tion, with its commodious central
club-house, providing facilities for
wood and metal working, general
offices, buildings for indoor games as
well as outdoor recreation grounds,
and a large porch overlooking Patter-
son Lake.
At the camp, counsellors -- usually,
graduate students in sociology, psy-
chology or education - take the boys
in hand, and administer them the
antidote for the early life that has
tended to make them anti-social.
The psychological approach to boy
nature is vividly illustrated by this
example of tactful leadership. One of
the boys had run away from three
other camps - it was during that
first year, 1921 - under the stress
of acute mismanagement. At the Uni-
versity Fresh Air Camp it was decided
that all that was necessary was to
give him some way to express him-
The lad was given the high posi-
tion of camp cheer-leader, and went
home from the camp that summer a
happier and a better citizen.
