8)  Impacts of Menogyn Experience/ Staff :  Looking back, I can say without question that 1957 was the best summer of my life. It was a life-changing experience. Today I continue to enjoy canoeing. I honeymooned on a canoe trip, and my children and grandchildren are enthusiastic canoeists. When I moved to So. California, my wilderness experience at Camp Menogyn also inspired me to join the Sierra Club, and take up mountaineering. For all these things I thank the Minneapolis YMCA, the Camp Menogyn Staff who carry the torch and traditions of this magical place.
