Camp Nobba-Wa-Wa-Nockee

 

This is the Boy Scout Camp chronicled by Jean Shepherd in his book "A Fistful of Fig Newtons." You can try to conceal its true identity but to any kid from Northwest Indiana who attended the Frank Betz Boy Scout Camp in Berrien Springs, Michigan, the names and identity are pretty transparent.
