I absolutely remember bathing in ice cold water once a week--I think there may hve been some warm water to soap up with....but their reasoning was that we swam every day, which we did. (I must have complained when I was a little older and cared more about whether or not I was clean--because I remember being told that. That year, the year of the long hike up Mt. Greylock, I was only nine.) My daughter goes to a camp with hot showers in the bunks and I sometimes feel that there is too much primping going on there....Remember there were wash basins or wash stands outside, and we blew bubbles .? ... I was friendly with Ellie O'Brien, who also went to church on Sundays. There was no activity for Jews, and I think the protestants also stayed in camp, and just the Catholic kids went out. We did have "vespers" and sing hymns.... I do not recall bobo or the spinach-- probably just you and his sister and he remember it! I remember Betsy Blish. But maybe from later years...and I must have known you....There were only about 35 campers. And of course, we were on that hike together! I am glad that you also have good memories of that camp. I set up sites at Face book and Linked In and heard from John Mills and Brick Logan and a woman who my sister knew, but since I didn't, I can't remember her name this minute.
