This album of memories was a project of Katimavik volunteers at the request of the Board of Camp Koolaree to celebrate the 80th anniversary of Camp Koolaree, 2011
A short word by the editor…
My name is Charly Baxter. I am 19 years old and come from Ontario, Canada through the National Youth Volunteer Program, Katimavik. Each member of our group works for a non-profit organization in Nelson, British Columbia. While working for Camp Koolaree I have been given the great opportunity to create this book, and get to know how wonderful and full of memories this camp truly is. On a couple occasions I visited the camp and could feel how special it is.
A big thank you to Ken Dimock for lending us his memory books. Without them this book would be a lot smaller. From what I know, Ken Dimock is famous to Camp Koolaree. Fortunately I got the chance to meet him at the 2011 Work Party.
Assisting Charly was a Katimavik youth from Kamloops, Owen Goss, who spent days
at Nelson United Church scanning all the photos and articles collected from Ken Dimock’s camp album.
Please enjoy your memories
