Camp History

 
 

It All Started When…

Our camp just celebrated 60 years at Camp Sugar Hollow! We love the community we live in, and we are looking forward to the next 60 years!

In 1969, our camp was born. Director Marjorie Webber and her team founded camp, helped the build our facilities, and developed the program we still hold dear to our hearts.

 

Way Back When

Before becoming a camp, Sugar Hollow was part of a farm. George Rex was part of the team who scouted potential properties and shared that the property still had the old farmhouse and a working well when our camp started.

Camp Sugar Hollow made its official debut. Running Creek platform tents were erected, and day camps began. The field was cleared later that year.

 

1960 - Patterson Hall Built

Campers carried most of the stones for the chimney from the swimming hole themselves. Camp Hall was later renamed Patterson Hall in honor of former camp director team, Gretchen and Richard Patterson.
