Day Camp


Counselor storytelling with guitar

Every Friday Chuck Stead comes to camp, and with his unique style of storytelling holds the audience of all ages in rapt attention. The silence is broken only by squeals, guffaws and laughter.

Chuck draws us into his stories of growing up in the nearby town of Hillburn and the surrounding Ramapo Mountains, where we meet the Cramshaw brothers, Uncle Mal, trappers, hunters and mountain people, and learn about the geography and natural history of the areas where the stories take place.
