Life and Leisure in a CCC Camp
The recreation hall was the place for leisure activities. Many camps offered evening classes. Camp life included time for sports and fun as well. Athletic contests were a popular pastime.
CCC camps were a tremendous boon to the local economy; camps purchased many of their supplies from nearby farms and merchants. Local carpenters and masons were hired to direct the workers. Camp enrollees also participated in local community events.
Erected by Letchworth State Park.
