@linnell,
Recently found this site. PBC's last summer of operation was 1980. In 2005 the Main Deck had been converted to a house. Glad to hear it was such a good time for you. I'm now living in Maine, just turning 87.
Best,
Cap'n Jim

@andiw,
I just found this site. My 3 sisters and 2 cousins all were at Quanset from the late 60's until it closed in after the 1976 season. It was an amazing place.

@Jim Melcher,
Hi Cap,n Jim! Glad to life is treating you well! Read a little about you on line as i was trying to find out more about what had happened to the old PBC. Worked for you under Peter Stevens as a camp cook back in the early 70,s . Never had such a good time in life! Too bad the simpler times werent currently with us today. Any info on my old culinary arts teacher from Bay Path high school? (Peter Stevens). Hope to hear from you . Mark H. Arel ,Now in Northern Vermont

@Jim Melcher,
Cap'n Jim, how could you POSSIBLY be 87? That would mean that I'd have to be ,like FIFTY, and that couldn't possibly be so...
I had such wonderful Summers at PBC. I remember all of the camp songs and still sing'em. Thank you for those wonderful times.

Venoak,
If you were a Master Sailor in 73, then perhaps I was your instructor? In 73, my last year as a counselor, I was Head of Sailing. I have been in touch recently with Roger Carroll, Steve Huntoon and Ted Carpenter. The thread of emails is a ton 'o fun.

@Jim Melcher,
Hello Jim,
I, too, have caught up with you and your sons. I echo the sentiments and marvel at your then and probable current patience. To think that you had to guide all of us as counselors in those days!! Haven't sailed in years but know that it is in my blood from all my years at yout camp.
Thanks so much,
-jw

Hi Ann,
I was a counselor way back at Camp Avalon. I just saw Laff in Chatham and he's still the same, great guy/ second dad. Please let me know if you and Bly decide to get a group together.....I'm in Boston and would love to see everyone. I was on the site because I'm looking for a sailing camp for my daughter Kaitlyn 9 who is "so ready for a sleepaway camp." Cape Cod Sea Camps is too large for her. If you happen to know of a smaller, girls sailing camp like our beloved Avalon, please let me know. Thanks Christina Cohen

@Jim Melcher,
Hi Cap'n Jim! Great to hear from you. I was a camper 1968-1971, and I think I gave you considerable aggravation my last summer being somewhat sassy and---to use a nautical phrase---mutinous. Which I'm sure you needed like Carter's needs Little Liver Pills. (Lord, how I'm dating myself.) But I loved everything about PBC, my occasional insubordinate attitude notwithstanding, and to this day I have many wonderful memories of the place. Take care.

@nicola bitossi,
Hi Nicola, I was employed at Pleasant Bay Camp in the early 1970s. The location where these sailing camps are all now developed into homes. The camps as i understand were closed up in the 1980s. The magical days of beautiful hot summer action packed days are now a thing of the past. All we have are our memories . Too bad for the children of our present time to miss out on the fun loving times of these camps gone by. Mark

@Champlin77,
I attended Namequoit just one season--1958--when I was 14. I don't remember anybody's names except Steve Gessner who wound up at George School with me one month later. I remember learning to sail in Turnabouts and Mercurys and being told constantly to "Trim the jib!" on the Cape Cod Knockabout. I've been sailing ever since and now have a Captain's license and teach sailing on the Hudson River. I've owned nine sailboats, from an 11' Mini-Fish to a 31' Hunter. I currently sail a Pacific Seacraft Dana 24. Both of my sons have Captain's licenses and one of them owns Sea Tow South Shore (Massachusetts Bay). Doug Maass, Sleepy Hollow, NY
