The photo above depicts the YMCA Camp Wawayanda Kilborne Memorial Chapel which was located near the intersection of the Blue Trail and the gravel woods road.

"The outdoor chapel was built back a little way in the woods, up a little from the main ground level. It was a very pretty spot. We hauled a foot-pumped reed organ up there, and we hung a set of chimes to support hymn singing. There was a slightly raised dais, with cedar railings, a pulpit from natural stones, and wooden benches to sit on. Incidentally, one of the jokes they used to play on unsuspecting newcomers was to tell them that they had been assigned the job of washing the chapel windows. They were sent to one end of camp to get a huge ladder, then to the other end to get the buckets and rags. They were warned of all the dire consequences, should they break one of those fragile panes. Then they were sent up the trail with all their stuff. But of course there never were any chapel windows. But there was a beautiful chapel."
