Series III: Property and Maintenance Records, 1933-1999

Scope and Content Note

This series contains property records for the various camp sites which Kinderland called home. Together the folders provide a narrative of sorts for the camp's location over the years; its origins at Hopewell Junction's Sylvan Lake, from 1923 to 1971, the closing of that property and the inter-site years, when Kinderland spent Summers in Connecticut and Pennsylvania, and finally, the settlement of the camp at it's current home in Tolland, Massachusetts, in 1976. This series also contains maintenance records related to the physical and structural caretaking of the camp site and construction projects. In large part, this material relates to the building of a new and extensive dining hall in Tolland, beginning around 1994 and completed for use in the Summer of 1998.
