Mr. Broun and his family welcome the public back to camp.
The Nineteen Fourties
The Fort was built for summer 1941. The fort was designed for the younger campers in mind and is still just as magical as it was back in 1941. This was also the year Pearl Harbor was bombed and the United States entered into World War II. Despite a lack of young men, the camp still ran.
Jack and Leona Price join the staff. Coach Price and his wife remained at Rio Vista until 1973.
Popular during the 40s included: motorboating, archery, horseback riding, Cowboy Parades, The Mystic Dance, riflery, arts and crafts, and hiking
