People often wonder where the name Camp NAN-KE-RAFE came from. Truth be told, the name dates back way before we ever occupied the property. The camp property was originally a campfire girls camp.
NAN is from Nancy Jeannette Wills, a young girl who lived too short a life, and the property is dedicated in her honor.
KE is a traditional Native American linking word. And,
RAFE is the name of the pond adjacent to the property – nowadays home to our turtle friends!
