Camp Derry?

I was a camper there in the early 1950s. What happened to the place?

Several years ago "DerryCamper" posted the following, and received no replies:

Can anyone tell me what has become of Camp Derry?

In 1954 & '55, I was a camper there and have fond memories of my summers at the camp. My mother was the Camp Mother there, and the Owner/Director was Thelma Hertzen Hurwitz. The camp was on a small lake, surrounded by mountains, and linked to Londonderry by an unpaved, heavily rutted road that caused occasional trauma to vehicular traffic.

I was there with you. I was from Long Beach, NY's East School and a member of Chuck Polin's group. On an off-camp visit to a farmer's market I darn near bought a rifle.I miss the place, Bob Walton

I went to Camp Derry in the summers of 1953 & 1954. I remember Thelma Hertzen Hurwitz and Marty, as well.
