In 1931 $400 was a lot of money, but Quakers in southwest Idaho came up with it and bought land for a camp on Payette Lakes near McCall. Vision and sacrifice were two of the ingredients that have made Quaker Hill Camp. The people who got it all started back in the early 1930s knew it was an important thing to do, but I’m sure they didn’t know how important it would become. They didn’t see all the breadth and depth of what would happen during the next 75 years.

I find it sobering to think that the same is true today.
