Before the first season (1966 ?), Jim Burns took a bunch of us up to the camp and we built the platforms for the tents and the dock. We’d known each other from being campers at Simpresca.

Later on I was a CIT and counsellor for two seasons.

The walk to Mr. Allen’s  store, or into Bracebridge on our days off to go to the movie theatre were a highlight – lots of deep conversations along the way.

The lady who was the cook (anyone remember her name ?) was a sweetheart.

All the people I met, and the experiences I had there introduced me to taking care of myself and others – lessons that paid off later in life.

Thank you Big Canoe – I did a lot of growing up there…
