Is anyone still around? Especially in northern California. We went back to Camp Crozier training camp last year for a nostalgia trip. It sure was... It is being rehab'ed as an eco lodge. They are planning to host Peace Corp 50th Anniversary in 2011. The director there was the cook/bus driver for our group. After that, we went to Vieques island where we trained. Took old photos of locals to see if anyone still there. Almost found some and left all photos for all to enjoy. Shout out if you were one of us.

Dear God. At last I have learned what happened to the Campamento de el Cuerpo de Paz south of Arecibo. I was there once with the Philippines III group in 1962 (altho I was selected out later). It was one of the best experiences of my life. I remember the kids next door playing on our "obstacle course" - a ropework area with a slack rope walk and a Tarzan jungle swing... etc.
Somehow, I have always felt that I benefited greatly from the experience, but never got a chance to pay back...

Anyway, thank you for the info.Good luck finding your Honduras colleagues.

Hey! Just back from Vieques on 2/13/13 where I spent two weeks with my novia, Mindy. Stayed at Bananas which is owned and operated by friends...restaurant, bar and 12 rooms...stay in room 12 if you want to sleep! Tell Wynne that "Jack sent me" and you may get a discount!

John, You were Juan Rapido in 1967. I just started poking around on the Peace Corps sites and read Mark Wentling's adventure story.

I never made the cut but have the greatest memories of the camp.

Hope this finds you.
