On the shores of Lake Ontario, the fires of Camp Hollis have been burning brightly for sixty-two years, ever since Judge Eugene Sullivan opened the camp for the youth of Oswego County. This collection of nostalgic images from summers past takes readers back to the classic days of hiking, swimming and marshmallow roasting. Each grinning face, each moment of captured camaraderie tells the story of war m green days and starry nights, of cookouts, canoes and campfire songs. These photos are a glowing testimony to the success of Sullivan's vision, the profound impact on the lives of Oswego County youth and the power of role models who want to make a difference.
