I don't know if Camp Many-Ha-Has was near Camp Overall, but we know Harry and Pansy DeWitt frequented both spots. I wish I had that "Hood River" pennant with the apples.
Some of the other folks: Roy Gill, Kitty Bragg, Albert Crocker, Mrs. Pifer, Hazel Hollenbeck, Jane Stevens, Art Clarke, Dorothy Epping, Dick Danforth, George Hitchcock, Culver Osgood, Louise Halverson, Lela Kelsay, and Mr. Pifer
Nice fringed table clothes on a camping trip.......Interesting hat the man in the middle of the photo has. Then there is the man camping (?) in the white shirt and tie.
They must have been doing some singing or something as there is the one gal with the tamborine.

Man on far left has a kind of buckle-on chaps, so did he and the other booted man ride horses to this camp?

Looks like a fun time. I would presume this to be a play on words for the name Camp Minnehaha.

What is that stuff hanging up on the right?
Looks like a bunch of dead turkeys.
Definitely looks like fun. I wonder if it is some kind of organization camp out.
Is there a Minehaha in the Mt Hood area? There is one north of Vancouver, WA.

I guess there was a Camp Minehaha, but no idea if that is where these happy people are camped.
From the July 17, 1919 HR Glacier: Under RESORTS:
"Numerous local families establish summer camps in the Lost Lake district. At the confluence of the Lake Branch and West Fork of Hood River, Mr. and Mrs. W.J. Baker have a permanent camp. The family left the latter part of last week to spend the heated season at the retreat, known as Camp Minehaha."
I wonder if the photo has a connection with the Chataqua gatherings?
Reading some of the Glacier clippings, it was a big deal for Hood River. There was music, guest speakers and acting skits and some of the above names in the photo are included in some of the articles.
