ACA, NY & NJ Mourns Legend of Camping Harold Breene
We at the American Camp Association, NY and NJ are saddened by the loss of one of our Legends of Camping, Harold Breene, Co-founder & Director of Camp Riverbend in NJ. He was 94 years old. Harold had been a devoted member of the American Camp Association, serving as President of the New Jersey section and of the Association of Independent Camps. He worked to improve camp quality nationwide as a member of the national ACA Standards Board. We will continue to celebrate his life by awarding the Harold Breene Youth Education Award to individuals who will follow in his footsteps. The Camp Riverbend community and all those who knew and loved Harold are in our thoughts.
AMSkier Insurance created a wonderful tribute last year on Harold's life and the history of his camp. Please view it here.
