You can also listen to a podcast of Hope Sinclair talking about growing up on the property that is now Enchanted Hills. Hope Sinclair’s father bought the land in 1927 and operated a boy’s camp there for more than 20 years. Hope herself spent much of her girlhood at camp in the 1930′s and 1940′s and developed a detailed love for the nature and history of the place. Listen to her stories of wild fire, a variety of tenacious mountain folk and the use of the land by a Blind Boy Scout troop from Berkeley years before it was purchased by Rose Resnick to open the first camp for the blind in the west coast in 1950.
