My brothers and I spent three summers at Kamp Kill Kare starting in 1946, just after WW2 although it had been running thru the war. It was owned by Dr. Ralph F. Perry, who was Principal of Morristown High School in NJ. Many of the older counselors were teachers on the MHS staff, especially many of the athletic and coaching staff. Your listings start out correctly saying Kamp Kill Kare, but then a VT state listing alters the first K so they read Camp Kill Kare. Many of the Kampers (we called them) were from around the Morristown area, but there were many from elsewhere in NJ, and states including CT, PA, and I think as far south as VT. Your description has 2 conflicting ref's to the Kamp - could be cleared up by saying 'Photo Dates circa be 1950s' which is correct. The camper photos are not frm Mr. McCallister - way different time period. verotas25@gmail.com
