Camp Chi-Wan-Da
Ulster Park, New York

The ruins of Camp Chi-Wan-Da exist in various states of advanced decay, from fragile, barely-still-leaning wooden walls to completely pancaked piles of lumber. The rubble of the former cabins and camp buildings will eventually be removed from the site as the hilltop property, now given over to passive recreation, is to be preserved as "undeveloped" riverfront land under the stewardship of Scenic Hudson.

Unless the name was taken by another camp elsewhere, it seems that baseball great Sandy Koufax was a camper here.
