I understand that camp started this year on a rather hot note so maybe, just maybe, one day of air-conditioning might add to your pleasure? Yes, on hot days League Lake and the pool might provide you with a measure of refreshment, but what about your cottages? Or the mess hall?

My Hoffman Estates Boys Club kids got to experience the real cool stuff during winter time often. Then sledding took the place of swimming. Some of our boys even camped out all night near the lagoon by snow packing their sleeping bags aside a warm fire.

Al Mackin, on that trip, provided our boys with a seven-course meal that was outstanding.  One of our boys stayed with Al to prepare that meal while the rest of us hiked the forest around the lake and visited Tent City where I once worked as a counselor for the summer camp.

That same summer of that trip our boys got to attend summer camp with Union League Club boys and they hot a great time albeit without air-conditioning such as you find in our photograph.  But for one day this might feel real good after all those early camp days in the 90’s.
