    Sylvia, I’m Jerry Siegel. I was a camper at Delawaxen for 5 summers, from 1937 through1941. I well remember the grove where services were held every Shabbat morning. Everyone was dressed in white. White shirts, white duck pants, white shoes. This is where the Lackawaxen River flowed into the Delaware. We called that area “The Point”.
    I was too young then, but I was told that this place was often used for romantic encounters. I’m 86 now, and reside in a senior independent living facility here in New Bern, North Carolina. (Funny how much this place resembles being at camp.) You can find a picture of me at the top of this website. It was taken on the steps of Bunk 15 in 1940. I’m the skinny dark-haired kid, top right, sitting between the two counselors. I was 11 years old then. Would love to hear from anyone who is still around from that era, or anyone else from camp.

    Hi, I am Ronnie Sobel and I have tried to write comments using Safari but they have not shown up so I am doing a test on another url.
    I was at camp from 1952-1960. I am delighted to read about Brett and Randy Dick, Ilene Jaffee Pomeranz and would love to hear from anyone who remembers me. I had many terrific years of camping and have great memories. I live in northern California near my brother Irwin.
    Hope this gets posted.

    Hi everyone,
    My name is Dave Greenstein and I was a counselor in bunk 6, I think, in 1957 and 1958. I was also science counselor in 1958.
    I remember Les and Barbara, and Saul (the boys’ head counselor), and Babe who was such a strong figure of authority. Les was 12 years old and was a good kid who did not take advantage of his special place as the owner’s son just as did Barbara who I thought was the prettiest girl at the camp.
    There was a special group of older boy counselors who were like the “Rat Pack”. There were about 4 of them including one who I think was the assistant head counselor. I don’t remember any names except for Dick Yarmy ( the brother of Don Adams (before Maxwell Smart) who would do all of his brother’s comedy routines on the porch of the bunks at night. He was so good , he broke us up all the time and I still laugh at those I remember after all these years. He was studying Nuclear Engineering but became a comedian himself in Los Angeles. He was well known among comedians in california and was head of a group of comedians who met regularly. Sadly, Dick Yarmy died a few years ago and the group no longer meets.

    There is probably more to talk about as we share our memories.
    I’m not good about remembering names but I hope others will
    refresh my memory so we can continue to relive those precious experiences.
    Dave Greenstein

    I wanted to let everyone know that Randy Dick had an unfortunate accident a month and a half ago. He is recuperating but it will be a long haul.
    Sending well wishes to Randy and his wonderful family!!’

    I have been playing with IPad and went on this site. Do not like posting on Facebook …. Guess it is a generation thing!!! Camp years were wonderful and an important part of my youth. Stayed at camp until 1958, counselor, group leader and just a fun loving persona. Hi Les and Barbara think we are distant cousins. My parents were Evelyn and Irving Lewis.
    Any info on fellow campers Sheila Metrck and Barbara Bernstein.. Guess they like myself are Going on 79….wow that sounds old..
    We my husband of 57 years live in Arizona.
    Hope you are all well..a Sheila

    Hi, Thanks to seeing Les at our American University 50th reunion I learned about this camp website. I went to Delanore in late 50’s and early 60’s. I have the camp pics from 1959 & 1960.
    Best, memories of camp are the broadway shows that we put on. Especially loved doing The Music Man. I was a non-serious performer, but it kindled in me a love of Broadway. Luckily living in the DC area I can see plenty of shows here and go to NYC often where my kids and grandkids live.
    Also remember, the Saturday morning services and choir. It was my only exposure to religion, coming from a non-religious background. Remember Zum Goly Goly!!
    Have been living in the D.C. area since college and married my college sweetheart. Raised our family in Rockville, MD. Went on to become a paralegal in a DC lawfirm.
