Directory History and Geography Timeline

The 1980s were a decade of expansion, rebuilding and saying our fond farewells at HSR.  The camp profited from the expansion of the Dining Hall and Headquarters Building, while the newly dedicated Schraam Lodge and Achgeketum Circle were a testament to the devotion of some of HSR's most respected patrons, including G. Ernest Heegard, who retired in 1988 after 29 years as Camp Director of Horseshoe.  Camp Jubilee became Camp John H. Ware 3rd in honor of the politician who donated heavily to camp.
