Hudson Valley Summer Camps Remembered In New Exhibit

With school out for the summer, many children and young adults in our region are heading to summer camp.  And their parents are remembering the summers they spent sleeping in cabins and consumed by color wars.

Local historian and author Howard Blue tells us about the Roeliff Jansen Historical Society's exhibit Swimming, Singing and S’mores: 120 Years of Camps In The Mid-Hudson Valley. The exhibit in Copake Falls runs from July 4-Columbus Day from 2-4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

Dr. Alan Chartock is professor emeritus at the University at Albany. He hosts the weekly Capitol Connection series, heard on public radio stations around New York. The program, for almost 12 years, highlighted interviews with Governor Mario Cuomo and now continues with conversations with state political leaders. Dr. Chartock also appears each week on The Media Project and The Roundtable and offers commentary on Morning Edition, weekdays at 7:40 a.m.
