Hi Ellen, I was just perusing the Minne Wonka site on google for the first time and found your posting and that of Laura Justiss. Wasn't that a fascinating time ? The summers I spent there in the 50's and 60's were truly some of the most memorable of my life. I wish we could go back there... (more)

I attended Minne Wonka Summer Camp. Many of us were from St.Louis. I'm figuring 1968-1970. No doubt one of my best memories I have of my childhood. Love, loved horseback riding. Sunday services. Chapel in the Woods(?)We sang "Morning has Broken". I so remember: movie night- "The Trouble... (more)

I saw a message from Mutzie Harms Weir written on this site in 2009 - I was at Minnewonka with you in the early 50's. I tried to email you from this site, but it seems to use only Outlook. I'm at email@example.com. If you see this, let me hear from you.

OMG had no idea this site existed until I got on my sister's (Mary Record Marshall) facebook page. I paged through all the messages and found some from the years when I was there. It was during the Lyon's time and I so loved my memories of the camp although I was quite homesick at first. I was... (more)
Went to MWL with many family members, Schnerings. Sitting here drinking wine with my sister and found this site. This would have been the mid 1950 s. How the he'll have we gotten so old?
