Thousands of children packed steamer trunks, packbaskets, suitcases or duffle bags and came to more than four-dozen unique summer camps in our region during the past century. The Town of Webb Historical Association's exhibit paid tribute to the founders, employees, and youngsters who enriched their lives with lifelong friendships, strengthened their physical and mental well-being, and created an enduring appreciation for the Adirondacks during their summer vacations. Through treasured mementos, artifacts, and photographs, the exhibit highlights the recreational activities the campers enjoyed along our lakeshores, riverbanks, and woodlands in our Township and neighboring communities from Woodgate to Raquette Lake.
