CIT Girls This past summer at Arcady has been an eventful and memorable one for the CIT girls. It has taken us to beautiful, new Saratoga Performing Arts Center where we experienced seeing a student matinee conducted by Eugene Ormandy. At intercamp games with Walden, we were always victorious in softball and volleyball games. Blazing our own trail up Arcady Mountain was exhilarating and fun, and our tours of Middlebury College and University of Vermont were informative and educational. But, perhaps the most rewarding experiences we had were when we were involved with CIT program, working with counselors in specialties and groups alike. All in all, the summer for the CIT girls was fruitful and exciting for the entire group.

Inter B Boys The Inter-B Boys, with all twelve campers returning for at least their second year, have proved to the camp that they are the best frog catchers this side of Lake George. Sparked by a trail catch of twelve frogs early in July, the Boys proved their prowess by catching a record 80 frogs in 30 minutes at Green Pond. To top that, the boys ran a very successful frog racing booth on Carnival Day, which attracted many a toad loving fan.
Another favorite activity of the campers was hikes. Many new recipes were learned on the sunrise breakfast, and supper cookouts. The overnight hike to Nob1es Island was characterised by the most efficient O.D. fire coverage of the year.
The athletic teams, coached by counselors Fred Lamere and Dave Zeemont, compiled a won-lost record of five wins and one defeat in competition with camps Walden and Silver Bay. Set back by a loss in softball in their first intercamp game, the team showed they had that comeback quality when they went on to win five straight in soccer and newcombe.
Other highlights during the summer included a trip to Shelbourne Museum in Vermont, a water fight against the counselor staff, and many unscheduled activities (Toilet paper fights) which kept the counselors on their toes.
The most important fact though, aside from the good times experienced by all, was that every individual in the group made close friendships and improved in most areas of his daily routine. It is looking back over the advances made by each camper that the counselor staff wishes the group every success for the coming year, and the hope of seeing them all back at Camp Arcady next summer.

Junior Girls Though our good times are all gone
And we're bound for moving on ...
We, the Junior Girls, will look back on our summer with fond memories. We remember: our water fight on Ti Field; our Breakfast Cookout on North Point; the Counselor Hunt; our overnite to Burgess (Spider) Island; our intercamp games; our sailing trip to O'dell Island; the Scavenger Hunt; our record breaking (90) frog hunt; that crazy Crazy Nite; U.N. Day, the carnival; our victory over the administration in a water fight; and of course, "Open a new window" and "This group at Arcady really swings, Juniors"; our kitchen raid (shhh) our trip to Gore Mountain and many other exciting things. But...
More than games that we have played
We'll remember friendships made.

Senior A Boys Army Navy Day, 12:00 P.M. pizza parties, a sailing overnight to Temple Knolls, inter-camp and challenge games, Popsie League basketball, sunrise hikes, trips to Lake Placid, Lake Dunmore and Saratoga, Zimbor Hunt, and camper counselor day were only a few of the group activities which highlighted the Senior A Boys' summer. Throughout the year the emphasis was placed on a diversification of activities, with athletic competition and instruction marking the program. The boys responded well to the coaching of their counselors and specialists as they gained four inter-camp game victories as well as posting five wins in challenge contests against other groups. In all their games played, determination and spirit reached all their actions with the exception of clean up in the morning. And, who could expect otherwise from a group of sixteen, l3 year old boys.

Senior A Girls Once upon a time, ten girls came to Camp Arcady. They were the Senior A girls. They started out to prove that the smallest group in camp could be the best - a little mischievous, a little corny, but the best. Their memories speak for themselves: crazy hat night - "Everybody loves a clown"....skit night - well, nobody's perfect... the half-baked cake... success at last - the carnival booth... Slime... the Green Hornet... Timothy Tyler... diets?... the Cornball Club... the Peskin Clan - mad Libs (good clean fun)... (very) crazy night.... the kitchen raid - "Don't put off 'til 12:30 what can be done at 10:00".... delightful memories of eclairs ... frizzy curls, clips, Lilt, "poof!" - straight hair.... sailing to the overnight - truly a compulsory general swim.... sailing... Saratoga, Lake Dunmore, Lake Placid,... the counselor show "more", dedicated to the Senior Girls... and the Shangri-la that was the prom. On Final Group Night and the night of the banquet the memories spoke. The girls reminisced and were sad in an "unsad" way. On August 25th, ten girls, the Senior A Girls, left Camp Arcady. Oh, yes, they did live happily ever after - especially happy after their summer it Camp Arcady. P.S. You see, good things Do come in small packages.

Soph Boys When the buses arrived at Arcady in June, the Soph Boys went to their bunk and became acquainted. On the front porch they saw a Black Bat, which was later to become their symbol. During the course of the year, the boys built a bat cave. From this, originated our name, "The Batboys."
Some of our activities were soccer, baseball, and arts and crafts. We celebrated Christmas, had a carnival, and also celebrated Halloween. During Christmas we had a pinada, snowball fights, and presents. On Halloween, we dressed up and went trick or treating. For our final group night we had an Indian campfire. We cooked corn and saw a fire hoop dance. We all enjoyed our year.

Soph Girls On our overnight we went to O'dell Island. It was lots of fun. This year we put on a play called "Cinderella." Once we pretended it was Halloween, and we went trick or treating. We had a trip to Fort Ticonderoga. Most of us saw a cannon shot for the first time. One afternoon we followed clues and a peanut trail to our secret hut. We took a hike up Arcady Mountain. It was a beautiful sight at the top. One night we played a real great game called, Truth or Consequences. We had a counselor hunt, and if we caught a counselor we could throw them in the lake! One night when it was pitch dark and freezing we raided the kitchen! One morning we woke up at 4:30 to go on a sunrise hike! We went fishing on the sunrise hike. Our group has had a wonderful year together.

Subsenior Boys All good things must come to an end. But as we leave our second home many memories remain with us. And most of all the relationships and friends we have made will carry us through the winter, until July and Arcady come once again.
This summer has been quite a sucess for the Sub-Senior Boys. As we look back on the past two months we realize how wonderful and meaningful our experiences have been. And how each has helped to make us a better person, especially in making us aware of our responsibilities and obligations. Above all we will remember our overnight to Vermont and the Cascades, Crazy Hat Night and Stuart Mouse, Jason and The Golden Fleece, Army-Navy Day, Casino and Prom Night, our trip to Ausable Chasm, Bowling Trip, Sailing Trip, our Counselor's skit, The Wild Angels, our Victorious Inter-camp games, and Final Group Night on the Beach.
With tears on our eyes we bid farewell to you Arcady, but look forward to the oncoming year when we will all be together once again.

Subsenior Girls From entrance to exit, the Sub Senior Bunnies had a summer which will be well remembered. It was a summer devoted to learning many new skills, but highlighted by exciting and fun filled surprises. Although the skills learned are far too numerous to list, one must not pass unmentioned. We all learned to live together harmoniously through understanding, cooperation, and respect for those inevitable individual differences.
As for surprises, well, who could mention them all. But it's certain we will never forget plate nights, Ausable Chasm, Beatnik Day, U.N. Day, the water fight, the taffy pull, the Junior Prom, and above all the final group night.
The essence of the Sub Senior summer cannot be read on paper. Only in the faces and voices of the girls as they talk about it.

Subsoph Girls The bright faces of Arcady were seen far and wide throughout camp this summer. We will always remember the nightly visits from Tinkerbell and the long awaited letter from Peter Pan.
Our out of camp trips were very exciting. Yvetta and Alison saved the day on our sunrise hike by volunteering to put the worms on the hooks. Nancy kept everyone's spirits up in our overnite in the hut. Our excursion to Fort Ticonderoga was great, especially when we saw the cannon fired.
In the water Cathey and Lisa led the way with their Olympic swimming. Remember our water carnival?
We were given the privilege of taking over a theatre night all by ourselves. We first put on our own version of Cinderella. Then we were in a dance pantomine in which Linda was exceptionally good.
All in all it was a fantastic summer and we can't wait to come back to Arcady next year.
