Looking Back at Summer

Diving In

Swimming lessons were always a part of what was taught at the YMCA's Camp Ocoee but this crew were ready to just dive right in.

Lifelong friendships formed at camp, long days enjoying a view. These are the memories of 100 years . We've gathered up images that span generations from across our collections to take a look back at the most celebrated season. From elaborate annual events dating back to the late 1800's, and personal family scrapbooks filled with adventures, to mid-century advertising photography used to promote the Scenic City as a recreation destination, there was always much to do and see on land, water and in between.
