Helen Worthington made the key contribution to founding Camp Alleghany for Girls. Read about this extraordinary woman to whom we all owe a debt of gratitude.
During its 50th season, the Alleghany Rattler was chock full of 50th anniversary celebrations and reflections, including this “history of camp.”
In this piece camp gets ready to celebrate its 50th summer (1922 being the first making 1971 the 50th.) The next few rattler throwbacks will focus on that summer’s events.
Fifty years ago camp held an event called Night of Delight. We think it has a bit of New Year’s spirit so enjoy this #ThrowbackThursday!
A funny new version of Twas the Night Before Christmas, Candlelight Campfire, and an imagined camp Christmas!
In this busy holiday season it’s nice to recall the value of rest, as this piece does in praising camp’s daily Rest Hour that’s still practiced today!
In this piece it’s clear that the esoteric world of beat poets had jumped to mainstream usage and were depicted in caricature, as here is held a Beatnik-themed Party at camp!
How did ‘Ghany mark it’s 25th summer in the wake of WWII? By considering summer camp in the lives of children all over the world, especially in war-torn areas.
Between gratitude and good manners, there’s lots to look back on in the Rattler that can prep us for Thanksgiving.
