Camp Sea Haven reunion event tomorrow

(Continued)

The facility included about a dozen “half moon of cottages” with a saltwater swimming pond in the center. This was pumped in from the sea and was changed frequently.

About 100 could attend per session, and there were four two-week sessions.

Lagasse said she will be recording oral histories this weekend, with the goal of creating a valuable history of the camp.

She said five of her six siblings will attend, as will her father, who resides in a rehabilitative hospital in Haverhill after suffering a stroke.

“You probably couldn’t have a camp like that today - it didn’t have ramps or other things that the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) would require,” said Lagasse, a former real-estate executive here.

“But it was a great experience and we’re trying to bring back a lot of people this weekend.”

Lagasse said that reservations are not required, and that all “alums” are welcome to the Sunday and Monday events.
