The author writes about his experiences at the Poland Spring Caddy Camp. The Camp began in 1921 as a summer outdoor work experience for boys from Boston’s South End Settlement House. By the 1950s, when the author attended the camp, the relationship with the Settlement House was over and the camp was organized on a military model. He reminisces about the directors and the grueling sports competitions the boys endured.
