Those were the days, werent
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.
here for a recap on the big reunion day, including links to photos
from the Friday night social and Saturday family day at camp. Download
