|Ruth Rhind Recreation Area History: Camp Shady Pines
|Please take some time to look at the photos below submitted to the Park & Recreation Department by Jessica Vose. The album contains images from Camp Shady Pines which was located at the Ruth Rhind Recreation Area some years ago.
"Under the protective covering of her majestic pines, for which she was named by a small camper so many years ago, Camp Shady Pines has grown into a scenic reservation. Her beginnings were as remote and humble as a tiny seedling searching for nourishment in a dry and dusty ground. But, indicative of the pine trees which surround her, her roots began to take hold and were nourished by the hopes and determination of the many persons who believed in her from the beginning and worked for her. With each new addition she becomes stronger, the growth of each year adding life to her solid roots. The laughing children are her refreshment as the raindrops are to the pine grove. Just as the pines reach their branches up to the sun, so the camp reaches out her arms to enclose the many friends who have nurtured her growth over the years."
