    I Remember, going to the camp back in 19 67,68 and 69 I’m curious do you have any information on camp goers during that time.Any photos hanging around? Very curious if there are any photos of me and my brothers.
    My name is Michael Harris, my brothers name, Christopher Harris, Steven Harris looking for any information or photos on any of us in regards to camping at Pillsbury camp during this time period. if so, greatly appreciate the information. i’m looking for my lost brother Steve Harris mostly. he had a different mother my mothers name was Miriam Harris..
    I definitely have fond memories of camping. Just curious if there is any information that you might have on us. I realize this might be. like looking for a needle in a haystack..
    Not too long ago. My dad passed, and I got back my lanyard that I made for him at the camp which brought up a lot of memories about Pillsbury camp.. which I have held onto for many years because we had so much fun.
    So I’m just running down memory lane.

    1. Hi Michael. It is so inspiring to hear what great memories you have of camp. Unfortunately, we are not affiliated with the camps other than to spread the word for upcoming camps. I hope you are able to find some photos.
