"Fellows, You Have Not Had Any Fun Yet"


When western New Kent was home to both a Methodist Orphanage camp and a large Y.M.C.A.camp . . .


Y.M.C.A. CAMP TO BE HELD JUNE 19 TO SEPTEMBER 1
Fellows, you have not had any fun yet, not until you have been to Camp Orapax. Camp Orapax is operated by the Y. M. C. A. and is located only seventeen miles from Richmond. This camp consists of six hundred acres of woodland and lakes, and is the most modern equipped camp in Virginia. Camp Orapax is operated from June 19 to September 1. At Camp Orapax you live in cabins with six boys and a leader. There is always something doing from morning till night. At camp all kinds of summer sports are indulged in, such as swimming, rowing, hunting, baseball, tennis, and others. Every boy in John Marshall and George Wythe is eligible to attend camp for not only the two weeks' period, but throughout the summer, and during the week-ends. The fee is only $10.00 for a ten-day period.
For further information see Irving Solomon in Room 112, or see Mr. Blayney at the Richmond Y. M. C. A.
