I don't remember having one of these at camp.  Do you?  How come we didn't have one of these?

 

October 10-11, 2004

The 2004 Reunion was an opportunity for those who could not make it to the 2003 Reunion to experience the same sense of closure that those of us who attended the 2003 Reunion were able to experience. It also provided a forum for us to get together and discuss serious issues of the past and the future.

Thanks to all who shared their experiences with the group, and thanks to those who stepped up to the plate, and contributed financially to the processes to plot and plan the future.

We now have a clearer understanding of where we have been and where we want to go.

These were the folks who weren't able to join us in 2003. We're glad they were able to be with us in 2004. It was great to see them again.

 

October 12-13, 2003

The 2003 Reunion was the first effort at getting many alumni from Berkshire Boys Camp together. It was a major effort, and many folks came. Many of these folks had not seen each other, or even communicated with each other for 30 years. Some of us had never met.

Some came to see old friends. Some came to remember times from the past. Some came with hopes and dreams for possible futures. Some came because they were curious. But most importantly, I think many of us came to bring closure to one chapter of the book of our lives.

When the camp ceased operations in 1972/1973, none of us had the opportunity to experience and understand the end of this era. None of us had the opportunity to say goodbye to our friends and to the institution that was BBC.

Almost everybody that dropped by for the reunion made it to the group portrait.

What would BBC be without a rousing rendition of

In A Cabin In The Woods

(Names withheld to protect the innocent...)

... and who better to lead us all than Bruno Durand.
