Default Camp Treasure Island

Anyone on the forum have memories of Camp Treasure Island? It was owned and operated by the Greater Boston Girl Scout Council until the early 60's, when it closed because it was too expensive to run a camp on an island, and the fees had to be kept reasonable for all girls. The island has of course now been developed with individual cottages, though it appears that some of the old buildings are still standing, notably the Jolly Roger.

I was a camper and later a counselor at that wonderful place. As a result of a previous forum post on a different subject I connected with a woman who was a camper in the Crow's Nest unit when I was a counselor. We have since shared some memories, and were thinking there might be others out there who'd also enjoy reminiscing about those great times.

Former nickname "Kushy"

The Lake Winnipesaukee museum has several scrapbooks from several of the island summer camps. Some go back sixty years. I'm almost positive there's at least one from a Treasure Island Girl Scout. You might enjoy browsing through them. I did. It's a good way to spend a rainy day.

Default Remembering TI

Hi Kushy!

Thanks for starting this thread - I look forward to seeing others join in. I was at TI for the summers of 1960-1963, as a camper. Totally Loved the place - I still remember songs and wonderful times there - climbing Mts. Major and Chocorua, sailing, wishing boats, so many tears at summer's end - - - What a joy now, all these decades later, to rediscover friendships from those days. Thank you, Internet, and this Forum! I was Meg at TI. Wish I were closer, and could check out the museum collection - - -

Default A previous thread

There was another, interesting thread several years ago. Don't know how to attach a link to it but it's under History, titled 'History of Treasure Island, or is it Red Head Island?'

The island was originally Redhead Island but I understand it was changed to Treasure Island when it became a Boy Scout camp.
