Abstract

Article on Camp Chewonki, in Wiscasset, which has attracted participants from around the world for decades to its unique self-discovery camping programs. In 1952, David Wingate of Bermuda came to the camp because of his obsessive interest in birds, and was pleased to discover others with common interests, and a sincere appreciation for interests that were different. Prince Mom Tri Devakul of Thailand came in the summer of 1954, and later purchased the late Victoria Crandall's mountaintop estate in Wiscasset, claiming he first fell in love with Maine as a Chewonki camper. Generations of international campers have followed them.
