On June 5, 1989, 21 enthusiastic students (19 male and 2 female) checked in at the Cloquet Forestry Center to begin the Diamond Year Forestry Summer Camp of Iowa State University. Although this is the 75th year since the first camp was held in 1914, this is the 81 st Iowa State Forestry Summer Camp. The confusion results from two sources: (1) due to the demands of World War II and limited enrollment in Forestry, no Camp was held during a 3-year period (1943-1945), and (2) between 1939 and 1951 , eight Junior Camps were held for junior and senior students who had completed the Freshman Camp.
