Boy's Town

For my first two summers in Yosemite, I lived in a tent in Boy's Town at Camp Curry. The first summer I was the relief clerk at three refreshment stands (two days at each place: Happy Isles, Lost Arrow, and Chinquapin). The second summer I was a room clerk at the Housekeeping Camp.

There was another area at Curry called The Terrace which was in the rocks above the main facilities. The girls lived up there, and any boy caught up there was immediately fired. And the same was true of any girl caught in Boy's Town. My, my, how times have changed.

Here's a photo of myself and my room mate for those two years (and a continuing good friend), Tom Davis. He worked as a cook in the Camp Curry kitchen.
