The bulk of the pictures below are from Mr. George Juris Zommers, to whom we are grateful for sharing these Camp Meacham pictures with Northern Kentucky Views.  Mr. Zommers' family worked  at the camp in the early to mid fifties.  More on the family is here, and some of his recollections about Camp Meacham are here.
