Administrative history

The Society of Camp Directors was founded May 21, 1969, after a long gestation period, from about 1957, when the subject was first broached in the Ontario Camping Association. Members of the OCA who were camp directors were instrumental in the formation of the new society.

Custodial history

This fonds was in the custody of Prof. Bruce Hodgins before it was donated to Trent University Archives.

Scope and content

This fonds consists of administrative papers of the Society of Camp Directors and includes minutes, bylaws, and correspondence. Also included are transcripts of interviews with past Society presidents, materials relating to the Society writing awards, and slides of Society members.
