The building in the background was used by my Hoffman Estates Boys Club monthly during the off season and ULBC Camp Director, Al Mackin, was always on hand to provide the boys with great fun. At times some of the Union League Club kids also were up the same weekend providing a joint camping experience.
I remember on one trip I met an older Greg Kokines. I had his younger brother, Mike, at Tent City when was a counselor at the camp in the 1960’s. Our kids made great use of the forest around now Fox Lake playing Hound and the Hare with both Al and myself as the hares. Once when it snowed several boys camped out in the snow for a night and had a great experience doing that. I chose to stay in the heated lodge.
I wonder if this lodge is still used by present campers today in the off season? Is the present camp director hired year round? Let us know by way of a comment.
