I just found this cite today (03/26/07) as I sat here daydreaming at my desk. I was reading an article in the Seattle PI about St. Helens' dome building due to lava oozing out even still. I decided to Google Camp Loowit and see if anything came up and the rest, as they say, is history. Great web site and thanks for going to the trouble of creating it. Some of the best times of my youth were at Y camp. Even though I grew up in the Seattle area, I went to Y camp b/c my mother' home town was Vader, WA and my uncle and cousins lived in Longview, WA. All the people on my mom's side went to Y camp going back years and years. My Cousins, Mike Nolan, Colleen Nolan and Steve Nolan all went to Y Camp and I got to go in the summer of 1967 with my cousin Mike and my older brother Frank. I was 8 y/o and I went every year thereafter until about age 12 or 13 in 1972 or 1973. Spirit Lake and sourrounds was a magical experience and Y camp was the best. Someone wrote a posting herein that Y camp was among the best memeories of that persons life and I feel the same. I was deeply saddened when the mountain blew up and destroyed the whole place.
I would like the story lines to the 13 cellars, the story about the hatchet man roaming the woods, and the miners getting attacked at Ape Canyon. My young daughter likes scary stories and I have tried to remember them but cannot recall the chilling details as the memory of those great scary campfire stories stayed with me through the years.
Also, if there is going to ever be another Y camp gathering, please let me know. Peter Bonnell.
