"The forester's Camp has come to be a regular feature in connection with the forestry courses of a number of educational institutions. Classroom instruction must be supplemented with field practice, and this can best be given in connection with a 'camp' where the students are located on or near the timber where the practical work is to be done." (Quote from the 1914 Ames Forester.)
