Carbide Camps Reunion Index - pictures, photos, memories

In 2002, the alumni of Union Carbide summer camps Cliffside, Carlisle and Camelot, near Charleston, West Virginia, established the third weekend in July each year as a reunion weekend. The camps closed in 1982, after providing enjoyment and growing-up for thousands of pre- and early-teen family members of employees of the Union Carbide South Charleston chemical plant. Every year there's gathering and fun and remembering, and a visit to the former Blue Creek campsites north of Charleston. You'll read here some of the thoughts and memories from those who have been able to attend one of these events. Enjoy!
