The photos on this page were taken by Lee Donehower, as a scout at Camp Pahaquarra. Lee writes, "I'm guessing the black & white images are likely from 1960 or 1961. The color images are likely from 1962 as color film and processing was just starting to become affordable around then." Comments below the photos are by Lee.


The camp ax. I don't remember its significance. There was something inscribed on the marble, but I don't recall.

Distant shot of the camp waterfront. Building in center was for canoe paddle & life vest storage. Note roped-off area just left of center... it contained the ax in the previous photo.


This shot was taken a few hundred feet up the mountain from where the campers lived on the hillside. The camp waterfront is in the foreground.
