Overview

Long before Shady Brook became a YMCA camp for boys and girls, it was a playground, respite and resort for the Bandhauer family. This work examines the camp’s history through carefully selected photographs, memorabilia, historical documents and the author’s personal experience. As both a documentary and memoir, the journey of a family with roots in Prussia and the camp’s present-day life will be explored. The family’s history tells a story of immigration, entre-preneurial pursuits, financial hardships, tragedy and survival. From the time the Bandhauers owned the property until after it became a YMCA camp in 1948, Shady Brook has been a portal into the wilderness for discovery and the divine relationship between man and nature.

This is the story, not only of a family, but of a place. This place is of red-brown gravel ground, dusty pine trees and beaten paths. It is about structures, old and new, from the Dancehall to the Dining Hall. It is about the creatures that inhabit Shady Brook, from the muskrat in the lake, to the rabbits in the bush, various dogs that resided at camp over the years, painted horses and garbage-rummaging bears. It is the geography of a place: Day Mountain, the Silver Mine, a lake, canyon and the Natural Bridge. It is a place of legend and lore, too, because what camp would be a camp without a ghost story or tales of Black Bart? It is the place of a thousand campers and a place once visited, you never really leave.

This is the story of Camp Shady Brook.
