Joan Roelof wrote a comment yesterday on my post about Chester’s 
Zumbarg: “I wonder if you know about Camp Woodland. It was a major 
influence in my life.” As it turns out the book on the Catskills that I 
had excerpted for that post had a couple of pages on Camp Woodland just 
before the Chester’s passage. Camp Wo-Chi-Ca, which stood for Workers 
Children Camp, was based in New Jersey and like Camp Woodland catered to 
the children of leftists, especially CP’ers. Three years ago I blogged 
about Fred Baker’s experiences at Wo-Chi-Ca and perhaps I will get the 
opportunity to interview Joan Roelof before too long as part of my video 
project about the Borscht Belt and the left.
