Camp Robinson Crusoe in Maine

Click here for recent research on the Maine camp's location

From the summer of 1929 through 1931, the camp was located on a small island in Casco Bay, Maine. Called "Robinson Crusoe Island", it gave the camp its name. Ditte Frederiksen McNeil, who has many of founder Josh Lieberman's photo albums, scanned these pictures from one of those summers.

Josh was able to buy the land in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, in time for the camp to operate there in the summer of 1932. That site became the camp's permanent home.
