Finally, we are lacking in overall photography for

1970s – Could use any (Camp) photos from this decade (please, no disco)

1980s – Could use any (Camp) photos from this decade

1990s – Could use any (Camp) photos from this decade

Here’s how to submit photos and other materials.

Drop them off (we would love to see you) or mail the original (item) print or even the negative or slide would be best. Tilikum will professionally scan or photograph and then safely package and return them.

Email the digital file, the most original (un-edited), highest resolution possible.
