Boy Scout Camp “Wakpominee”

We received a collection of photographs of Boy Scout Camp “Wakpominee” from Jim Barber of North Carolina, originally from Glens Falls.  The camp is located on Sly pond in the Adirondack Park, east of Lake George in the Town of Fort Ann.  All the pictures were taken in 1928 and 1929.

I’d like to share this collection with you.
