As a Cub Scout in the 60's, we used to have a annual event in the Fall at Fort Dearborn Boy Scout camp near O'hare airport. We would gather wood and build a big bonfire sing songs, roast marshmallows, and drink hot chocolate.
I was too young to remember much about the camp, but I remember seeing cabins there. Does anybody remember this camp from earlier days. I would have to assume that this camp was built years before the buildup of the airport and the surrounding suburbs. I can't believe, if the camp still existed that they would allow open fires.
What was the exact location of the camp? Does it still exists? If not when did it close and what happened to the land.
Later as a Boy Scout, I remember camping at Kiwanis,Crete and Owassippi.
