Camp Henry Horner
Staff Reunion Site
CHH entrance

Those were the days, weren’t they? Bug juice, arts & crafts, and general swim (not to mention lights out). This site serves as a scrapbook of memories for those of us who worked at Camp Henry Horner day camp, residential camp, or pre/post camp between 1972 and 1981. Relive those thrilling days of yesteryear and rekindle the memories and friendships developed during those hot, dusty days in Ingleside, Illinois on the shores of Wooster Lake.

How This Started
and Mark Thompson, best friends and longtime camp staffers, visited Henry Horner in July of 2002 and thought a staff reunion would be fun. After months of planning and hunting for people, the reunion took place on June 7, 2003 and exceeded our wildest expectations.
