For many enrollees, the CCC camp was their first experience away from home. Discipline, order, and uniform dress were part of the camp experience. The enrollees worked seven hours a day and then had some free time. On Saturdays, a half day was set aside for cleaning the camp site; Sundays were free days.
The recreation hall was the place for leisure activities. Many camps offered evening classes. Camp life included time for sports and fun as well. Athletic contests were a popular pastime.
CCC camps were a tremendous boon to the local economy; camps purchased many of their supplies from nearby farms and merchants. Local carpenters and masons were hired to direct the workers. Camp enrollees also participated in local community events.
