Boxwell Bob

Allow me to introduce Boxwell Bob. Boxwell Bob is a character created by Gordon Bryan. Bryan was a staff member in the early 1970s, serving on both Stahlman and Parnell staffs (at least according to our records!). “Boxwell Bob” was created several years ago as a humorous way to cheer up a fellow staff member. In short, he was an “in joke” between fellow staff members.

Now, “Boxwell Bob” has accepted a challenge–and issued the same challenge–to write a Boxwell song. I present the results here to you this week in the hopes that it will inspire others to take up the “Boxwell Bob” persona (or something similar) to create your own camp songs!

And who knows? Maybe in a year or two, “Polly Wolly Boxwell” will become a new camp staple.

All credit to Gordon Bryan. Song based upon “Polly Wolly Doodle,” a traditional children’s song dating back to the late 19th century.

Sunday Night Campfire

Summer camp is about to begin! The 2023 season is upon us! And what says “Boxwell Summer Camp” better than a big campfire?

No story this week, just the joys of a big campfire and the anticipation of a campfire program that’s about to begin. This campfire is from Stahlman’s Sunday Night Campfire Area in 2004.
