Description
Negative shows a group of girls of various ages crowded around a picnic table eating and drinking, surrounded by forest. There are two picnic tables next to each other, and a building in the background. They are probably at the YWCA's Camp Ayun Mapu in Big Basin, California
The YWCA's Camp Ayun Mapu at Big Basin near Boulder Creek attracted about 150 girls for two week sessions in the summer. From Fran Smith, "Breaking Ground:The Daring Women of the YWCA in the Santa Clara Valley, 1905-2005," (2005), p. 51. Big Basin became a state park in 1902.
