The Ted Williams Camp was established in Lakeville, Massachusetts, in 1958 for boys ages 8 to 17. The Hall of Famer’s rationale for starting at the camp at the time, quoted in a 2009 blog article about the camp:
“One of the bright spots of my life was the first time I attended a boys camp. A strong body has been one of my greatest assets, and I attribute its beginning to this early camping experience.”
Activities at the camp included baseball instruction but there were also traditional summer camp activities and the occasional visit from the Boston Red Sox star. The camp remained operational up through the early ’80s and the property was acquired by the town of Lakeville in 1986.
Images of a decal and a 1958 brochure for the camp were found on eBay.
