    AS a girl scout in the 1950’s I attended Camp Tepicon. It was a fun and exciting adventure
    and i have great memories of my time there.
    I ate many meals in this dining hall and enjoyed the Girl Scout experience.
    At the time I did not know it was a new deal project. fun to learn about its history.

      My father went hiking with my family here and remembered camping at camp tepicon as a boy scout in what I’m guessing was the late 50s early 60s as he was born in 1950. Can’t find much about it online but it sure is interesting hearing about the good old days. Makes me wish I could have grown up in those times and been a scout during that period. That would have been something!
