Group of Los Angeles YMCA youngsters open the 1954 summer camping season, 1954.
Supplementary material continutes: Other San Bernardino Camps: Other camps in the San Bernardino area, Little Green Valley, Big Pines and Mozumdar, will open later this week. Programs include swimming, hiking, handicraft, athletics, horseback riding, and daily chapel services and campfire programs. With the exception of Mozumdar, the long term camp near Crestline, these San Bernardino area sites hold eight-day periods. Age range: 13 to 18. High Sierra Programs: The High Sierra Base Camp, in the Mammoth Lakes area, will open next Monday. Programs operated out of this site include the back country pack-in trip and the Caravan trip through the high Sierras and Yosemite. Both are eight days and both stress the more rugged type of camping-- boys sleep on the ground and do their own cooking. Age range: 13 to 18. Operation of YMCA Camps: All camps are operated by the Camp branch of the Los Angeles YMCA for the community branches. Groups attend from the branches, and programs are planned and directed by branch YMCA secretaries".
