YMCA Summer Camp

From the collection

The panoramic photos are of a YMCA summer camp at Nabnasset Lake in 1915. According to the donor, the camp was located at today’s Edward’s Beach on the south shore of the lake. Visible are numerous unnamed camp-goers, large tents, and a water recreational facility. According to the Westford Wardsman, a summer camp also existed on Forge Pond around the same time.

The photo was donated by Westford resident Barbara Whiting in 1997.
