BA The summer would not have been complete without BA 's shining faces carrying frogs and bugs back to the bunk. Young, active, spirited, the group was the delight of the camp. What looks of amazement when it was announced that the chef refused to serve breakfast and the fun and excitement of the surprise breakfast at Brandt field! The BA 's gave out with a sense of free expression in their participation and were an incentive to creativity in camp life.

BB Arcady '65 will be a year to remember for the BB Hounds. No one will forget the terrific performance of our boys in the talent show and in the skit night production of L 'il Black Booties. Especially memorable was our trip to historic Fort Ticonderoga and our overnight hikes to Agnes Island and Trout Brook - those stray cows were really funny.
That raid on the kitchen that we blamed on the GB girls was really something, and did we ever scare the OD with Plan X with the help of Georgie the Dummy.
Everyone will remember the Wiggenfield Search and those nights of "You're in the Doghouse" - But remember - until next year - keep the secret of the Mystery Story Teller. Heh Heh Heh.

BD The summer of '65 was a great one for the BD boys. We played a great variety of athletic activities and what 's more important all of the boys, without exception, improved their skills.
The softball team played in some tough games and we finished the season with a winning record.
Improvement and fun also was the key note of the waterfront activities. The boys had expert instruction in swimming, sailing and canoeing.
Canoeing brings to mind our overnights. Who can forget the beautiful weather we had? But the fire was warm and the food was good.
The BD boys proved to be fine actors and singers as attested by the rave reviews which one skit night show received. Look for the "Man From Arcady" in the movies.

BE It was a year of thrills and excitement for the BE boys. There were camping trips to the mountains and canoe overnights on the lake. Who could ever forget the aroma of the steaks being cooked by the master chefs.
Softball, basketball, tennis, baseball and soccer were just some of the sports we enjoyed. Our intercamp games were terrific, but the most excitement came during the August challenge games. The competition against BF was something we will all remember.
Skit night found us on stage with a series of comedy sketches. Naturally, the audience broke up when we were on the stage.
No matter what the activity, the BE boys were there to lead the way.

BF This was a busy, as well as outstanding summer for the B-F Magicians. The group was involved in many athletic challenges both of inter-camp and intra-camp variety. The standard sports of soccer, basketball and softball were all engaged in and in addition the group worked hard and produced a fine volleyball team.
The Magicians also excelled in a number of their areas. On the intellectual side the group was undefeated in "College Bowl". Our adventures into the world of campcrafts produced many enjoyable times. It can be said that some of the finest meals ever prepared on an outdoor fire were made by some of the famous B-F "Chefs". One highlight of our Swede Pond overnight that will be remembered by all was the late night snack of watermelon.

BG Athletics was the key-note of the BG Ô65 season. All of the boys showed enthusiasm in volleyball, baseball, basketball and softball, but really excelled in soccer.
In "A" soccer and "A" softball we ended the season with a record of 4 wins and 3 losses. This record is deceiving since two of the three losses in soccer were by one goal.
The highlight of the softball season came against Twin Lake on August 3. Behind 6-2 in the last inning, with one out, the "A" team came up with 5 runs on 3 home runs to beat the good Twin Lake team.
Some of the boys in the group organized a band called the BAMFS. The group played for the camp throughout the summer.
The boys welcomed trips out of camp for a change of pace. Trips like our overnight to Vicars Islands and our day trip to Blue Ridge Falls helped to bring our group closer together as a unit.

GA Hams that we are, the GA girls loved the theatre. Within the first week, we were already showing our talents in the talent show. We were very proud when Adrienne Ehrlich played the piano, and Diane Dubow, Nancy Grant and Hilary Jasper participated in a trio. Soon after, the GA's won a prize on hat night for being the most "charming" in their "candyland" hats. Skit night was another fun-filled event with the GA's singing "I won't grow up." Our theatrical season ended with our presentation of "Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs." With Jody Grossman as narrator, the story was told of a beautiful Snow White (Karen Plevy) who, saved by a kind hunter (Heidi Milgrim) was forced to live in the forest, befriended only by some animals (Laurie Romanoff, Amy Halpern, Lisa Sapper) and the 7 dwarfs. 1.

GB The GB girls had a FANTASTIC summer. Carol passed her second area swim test with flying colors. Mindy B. celebrated two birthdays; one for herself and one for Quincella. Jackie became a regular Mickey Mantle. Ellen L. had a whopping time each time we had a pillow fight. Adventure was the best kind of fun for Fleecy and Candy - not that we blame them. Remember Jabe's Pond, everyone! Speaking of water - how about the Arcady Aqua Queens Margie, Dorrie, Robin, Laura, Bonnie, Golda, Sue Ann, Jackie and Mindy F. We hear a rumor that they are going to Florida to star in the big water skiing show. Ellen S. is going just to show us how to dive. We cannot forget our overnight of cookouts either, can we Susie and Marla? It was a fun summer.

GC The thirteen Winkies of GC will most certainly remember this eventful and exciting summer at Arcady. However, they aren 't the only ones to remember GC for these girls made quite an impression on the rest of the camp. Dressed all in white with big pointed hats we proudly marched to the dining room on hat night and were chosen "The Prettiest Group". A week later we continued with the theme and presented a singing skit on all different kinds of hats.
To sum up the summer of 1965 for the CC girls. . . it was just superka1ifrajalisticexpialidoious.

GD From the moment they stepped off the bus, the GDs let Camp Arcady know that the Beau-Ties had arrived! Our participation in the talent show, our marvelous presentation on skit night, and our numerous game nights and "monkey-jerks" showed our personality and spirit.
Cookouts at South Point and our overnight at Vicars Island showed our camping spirit. Inter-group games and dance contests proved the Beau-Ties to be unbeatable!

GE The G.E. girls enjoyed an eventful summer. It began the moment they got off the bus as they descended upon the Gables which was to remain their "home base" for the eight weeks.
The socials were a big event for them. The greatest of all being the prom, entitled "Sayonara." Their comments regarding the prom were. . . "its the best one ever", and "it was fantastic!"
The prom was a beginning of an end. The beginning of the last weeks activities in camp and an ending to the season as a whole. After the prom, the camp musical "Guys and Dolls" followed in which half of the girls in this group were participants.
The banquet topped everything, as we all filled ourselves to the brim with scrumptious food. After the banquet we had the traditional floating of the wishes, many of which were to return to Arcady, to their home, the Gables, and their friends!

GG This year was an all-important one for the GG "Supers" filled with memories, laughter and tears. We were to become, much to our own surprise, the "most spirited" group on campus. And we were to win victories in two inter-camp games. We carried this spirit into our skit night, our "surprise" water fight, and even our expert painting job.
But most important of all, this summer marked a turning point. The GG girls were ready to assume the training for a future position as a counselor by participating in the CA program. There were hard days of frog hunting with the BA boys and waternewcomb with the GB girls. But the rewards were great.
And throughout the CA program we continued to act as a group. There was our "out" canoe trip and our bowling reward. And then the summer came to an end with Sayonara. The GG girls had proven "Supers are the best theres no doubt about it."

Sub B Arf Arf Arf. The Pup Kennel Klub cry was a familiar sound at Arcady this summer. Steve, Larry, Mitch, Randy, Peter and Johnny will always remember this '65 summer - the Mystery Story Teller revealing his secret identity, the trip to Fort Ticonderoga, the Wiggenfield Search and the overnight to Trout Brook when we played Red Rover and the cows came over. That Agnes Island trip, the Corn Husking Contest, and the climb up Arcady Mountain were really terrific.
Good-bye till next year, when the pups will be big grown-up hounds. Ruf Ruf Ruf.
