FOR TWENTY-FIVE YEARS, from 1917 until 1942, Camp Carry-On provided a wilderness retreat for girls every summer. Located in Camden County (and later Mountain View), Missouri, the camp taught a variety of physical and character development skills outdoors to girls of all ages, under the direction of Captain Natalie Wilson Prussing, also known as “Captain Nat”. Surviving several transitions, growing and moving as dams flooded once wandering streams, Camp Carry-On provided lasting friendships, with reunions held decades later.
Proceeds from the sale of this book will also help other communities and organizations preserve their history through Our American Heritage Project, a non-profit organization.
About The Author
I just love your book! There are no words to express how much I enjoyed reading it. What a wonderful history…. JUST INCREDIBLE! The “girls” (59 and 61 years old) were so amazed, with comments like “how did we not know this.” What a wonderful trip down memory lane.-Patsy Fisher Braughter, Naples, FL
