This early silent film contains footage of the early years at Horseshoe. Featured are various programs, the brand new pool, the old camp road and the White House (headquarters and hospital.) The promotion ends with the retreat ceremony on today's athletic field with the flag being lowered from Flag Pole Hill.
This camp promotion was produced by Philadelphia Electric Company in 1934. Filmed by Jos. S. Webb and T. J. Price, it features a typical day in Camp Horseshoe. Many of the landmarks and traditions have endured and are main stays of camp life in the 21st century. The original 16 mm film had been transferred to VHS and that VHS was the source for this digital version. The film has been divided into nine parts for publishing in the HSRAA Online Museum.
This part contains footage of the morning ritual in the stockades beginning with reveille. Also featured is the Octoraro and Camp Director Thomas J. Price.
The pool is featured in the sixth segment. Note that there was no fence around the pool in 1934. There was a buddy board, lifeguard stand, diving board and the mandatory shower before entering the pool. Diving from the side of the pool was not forbidden.
Started in 1993, interviews and clips of Horseshoe were edited together for this segment of a larger promotional video that had planned to build on the success of the 1992 promotional video. Unfortunately the video was never finished.
