Camp Linwood Hayne
Camp Linwood Hayne (AKA Lynwood Hayne or Linwood Haynes, Linwood Hane, Linwood Haines) closed in December 2005, replaced by Knox Scout
Reservation in Lincoln County.. But, Linwood Hayne (along with Camp Josey near Blythe, GA)) was the Georgia-Carolina Council's main camp for nearly 60
years. (previous camps had been in Langley, SC, in the 1920s and an earlier Linwood Hayne [located on Boy Scout Road?]). It was originally thought that
Camp Hayne would have to close in the late 1950s-early 1960s when the paper plant was built nearby. However, the prevailing winds blew the paper plant
aroma away, and instead the camp was improved and modernized, most notably by the addition of Memory Lake. In addition to the photos & Map of
Linwood Hayne scattered in the rest of the T99 site, this page will record a specific pictures and memories from Camp Linwood Hayne. Others with photos
and memories are welcome to send them to the webmaster. See another page on Linwood Hayne here.
