Camp History

Camp Marlyn/Bluewater Farm

Peg Hoban bought the property in the late 1930s. She continued to add parcels until she had the current lot which is 236 acres. She turned it into a top-notch girls’ summer camp called Camp Marlyn, which came from combining the first three letters of Peg’s first name, Margaret and the last three letters of the camp mother’s name, Evelyn Boynton. Claudette Meier purchased the property from Peg Hoban in 1965 and continued its use as a girls’ camp. In the early 1990s she rented out the camp to Leona Jenkins who continued the summer camp until 1995. After that the Lodge and some of the other buildings were converted to year-round use and the old farm became the Owl’s Nest Conference Center. Deb B. arrived here in late autumn of 2005, bringing what's now known as Bluewater Farm into being. Things quieted down at the Lodge in 2015, and The Tremblay Family is excited to revitalize use of this magical place in 2022.
