Continue of Pictures

Images of Camp Norcom, Camp Talahi, and Grace Cottages, all sites that were operated in the past by the YWCA of Metro Detroit.


Many of the pictures give us a wonderful peek into camp life over the years.

Exercise and health were stressed.
Here we get a peek at the Wigwam at Camp Cavell. This building burnt down and now all that is left is a fireplace standing in the woods on the trail to the horses.
Little was know about Camp Talahi which was owned in the 1920's-1930's by the YWCA and is now owned by a different organization and is still in operation.

Camp uniforms worn on Sunday and special occasions help to identify the era or year.

Now campers get a Camp T-Shirt to wear on the last day of Camp.


What a treasure we
have found!

The YWCA operated several
camps over the years.
