Say "Glen Spey" and I immediately think of a little white bridge over a duck pond. A touch of Japan in the middle of a Jewish summer camp.
I spent July-August 1967 at Camp Ramah in Glen Spey, New York - a camp affiliated with the Jewish Theological Seminary and the Conservative movement. It was a pretty place, in a wooded area about 2 miles from the Delaware River.
Searching for Glen Spey on the Internet has turned up very little, apart from the sad chronicle of a camp that closed in 1971, sat empty for a few years, and finally burned down. On June 16, 1976, the Lumberland Fire Dept. was called to put out a fire that broke out in the kitchen-dining hall. To keep the vandals away, the rest of the place was deliberately burned down in 1982 - an event described by the Glen Spey firefighters as a "great training experience."
