Camp Malloy, near Laurel Lake, once served as a Catholic boy's summer camp. It is odd that after all these years of closure there is still standing structures, some even with 1950s paperwork. It is said that the grounds are haunted by an angry apparition who chases people away.

    Myself and my best friend attended Camp Molloy for I believe 2 weeks, probably about 1937 when I was 9. I always thought the camp was up state NY because I went by RR. I remember practically nothing about it other then it wasn't tightly regimented. The lake had lots of small pieces of light blue rubber in it which puportably were from a RH Macy Parade balloon. My Mother's favorite story was that I arrived home in the same uniform that I left home in 2 weeks before, with a case of Impetigo (I didn't want to get my other uniform dirty)
    I also remember getting up at night having to urinate and going behind the cabin because the toilets were too far away. It was an experience to be sent to a rural camp when we lived in Rockaway at the beach. I'll never know why
    I went there for two summers with my older brother. We had Blue/Gold week with various competions. One was a contest to see which group could pick the most mussels from the beach. I guess we were free labor.
    I still remember the camnoes, swimming and the smells of summer camp. I wish I still had the really cool white collared sweatshirt with thre green Camp Malloy emblem on the chest pocket. It was a pull over with a zip collar. Funny what you rememer.
    It was really cool being a kid. Thanks mom and dad for sending me to summer camp.
    I went there when I was about 12. About the only thing I recognize is the latrine and what looks like one of the bunk building that where around a huge open field.
