That Was Then, This Is Now: Camp Wear!
As we continue our 90th Anniversary year at WeHaKee Camp for Girls, we thought it might be fun and interesting to look back and compare how much WeHaKee has changed and how much it has stayed the same! If you haven’t already been aware of this, each week we have been posting a photo from the past and then a comparable one from the present while chatting a bit about the differences and similarities. So we hope you enjoy our latest That Was Then, This Is Now: 90 Years of WeHaKee of what campers would wear!
Being on the Green Bay of Lake Michigan (near Marinette, Wisconsin), girls at WeHaKee Camp for Girls back then would often wear a uniform with a nautical theme for special occasions. Here are three girls in 1923, modeling their stylish ensemble of dark knickers and stockings, white sailor style shirts and ties, topped off with a sailors cap.
Now the clothes have changed quite a bit over the 90 summers of WeHaKee. No longer is there a specific camp uniform (although the campers do wear a Camp WeHaKee tie-dyed t-shirt for our weekly flag ceremonies), clothes have changed significantly since 1923. This photo (taken just last evening) shows a cabin group of girls presenting their cabin call-out for the rest of the camp community!
Hey Alumni – those of you who attended camp decades ago or just a year or two ago, we would like to hear from you. Do you have some photos of your summers at WeHaKee? Share them with us and tell us your stories!
