Golden Quill and Golden Lens 2001

J. Wendell Howe was one of the early leaders in the private/independent camp movement in ACA's western region. He, along with his wife, Ruth, directed a Community Chest camp, Camp Condor, near Taft, California, in the summers of 1943 and 1944. In 1945, they bought a camp at Lake Tahoe and named it Skylake Camp for Boys. The camp is now called Skylake Yosemite Camp, which until recently was owned and directed by John T. Howe, CCD, J. Wendell and Ruth's son. Their daughter, Marian Howe Andersen Herndon, CCD, also gained recognition in the camp field as owner and director of Skylake Ranch Camp in Ahwahnee, California.
