Images from Camp Comet

This past weekend, a reunion was held for the campers, counselors, and staff of Camps Wohelo, Comet, and Comet Trails. I spent three summers at Camp Comet as a counselor (81,82, and 83). It was a hard, great, happy, frustrating, and growing time for everyone. I did not attend the reunion, but I have heard from several folks who attended the camp.

Interest seems to be high. Some folks have found this blog though Google searches and contacted me about a picture that I posted over a year ago. So in the interst of giving them something to find when they get back here, I'm posting a few more pictures that I have from those days.

Enjoy (Click the pictures for bigger versions)





This was my gang in my second summer at camp. The names were (front from L to R) Matt, Jason, Richard, and Antonio (Standing from L to R) Steve, Andy, David, Saul, Oscar, and Brad. Of the three summers, this was easily my favorite group.

This is a picture of Matt and Andy out on beautiful Lake Comet (snicker).





This is a picture of the star of one of the street hockey matches. He was one of the nicest kids but tough as nails when it came to hockey.





Here is a picture of Special K from 1983 with a couple of friends from Wohelo.

And finally, the original picture (cleaned up a bit) of the gang that made the summer of 1982 special. I hope you are all doing well.

Very Cool. Just happened to do a search
on Camp Comet. I was a counselor there
in 81 also. Some of the kids/counselors
do look familiar. My name is Ken Marshall.
I had the 7-8 year olds and was a swim instructor.

I was a counselor there in the summers of '83 & '84. I was the all powerful "Lake Head" at Lake Comet. From Steve Kells. srkells@comcast.net

I was a councilor at Comet Trails for 1973 and again in 1975. I was the color war captain (white team) in 73 and head councilor in 75. I was the bane of Tony Zanin existance for my late nights out with fellow councilors Bracken Rourke, Gary Besosa, Peter Briggs and Steve Butler. Many fond memories.
