General Note

  • Camp Orchard Pond was used from 1927 to 1947, when it was sold. Summer camp operations were moved to Camp Semialachee (union of "Seminole" and "Apalachee") which was used by the Boy Scouts from 1947 to 1965. The camping was then moved to the Wallwood Scout Reservation.
  • Accompanying note: "Two unidentified Boy Scouts are shown rigging the Camp Semialachee sailboat in this tranquil setting following one of the heavy rains last week. In addition to the sailboat, a number of canoes and rowboats are available for the campers at Silver Lake. The fourth and final week of camp opens today. The camp has facilities for approximately 100 boys each week with a full program of camp crafts, recreation and good food."
