CCC Camp V1 near Lindbergh Bay – St. Thomas VI

Description

The CCC built camp facilities near Lindbergh Bay in St. Thomas. The Annual Report of the Governor of the Virgin Islands for 1938 describes the CCC’s effort to expand enrollment and camp facilities across the islands: “The senior camp in St. Thomas has maintained an enrollment of approximately 75 persons, and the junior camps in St. Thomas and St. Croix have maintained their authorized enrollment of 100 men each. In the next fiscal year it is proposed to increase the enrollment of the St. Croix camp from 100 to 150 men”

In 1939, the Lindbergh Bay camp moved to make way for a Marine Corps airfield: “The present site of the C. C. C. Camp at Lindbergh Bay has been transferred to the United States Navy Department for use in connection with the development of the Marine Corps aviation field. A new camp site has been made available and the transfer of buildings and the construction of new buildings is now in progress.”
