Description


This is a 1940 Norm Adams pictorial map of Camp Sunrise boy scout camp in Vermont. The map depicts the camp from Doughty Pond and Perch Pond to Signal Point and from Rocky Point to Perch Pond and Watch Point. Sunset Lake dominates the map, with vignettes of scouts canoeing, fishing, sailing, swimming, and diving illustrated throughout the lake. One scout, in a small row boat, has hooked a rather large fish and is being pulled across the lake! Numerous locations are labeled, including Mood Pond (complete with a sketch of a moose), a nature trail, and a deserted village and Indian spring. A sign along the left border states that it is three miles to Lake Champlain, while another sign, near the bottom border, states that the road leads to Rutland, Brandon, and Burlington, Vermont. Several vignettes are illustrated throughout, including a pirate searching for buried treasure, a Tyrannosaurus Rex, and several owls. Scouts can be found trekking through the wilderness, or carrying a canoe over a portage, throughout the map. The camp itself is situated between Sunset Lake and Sunrise Lake, with four numerically identified locations: 'where we eat,' 'and sleep,' 'play games,' and 'swim'. The map exhorts the viewer to 'come explore the rest!' A troop of scouts, illustrated in silhouettes, is hiking along the bottom border, complete with a donkey pulling a cart, a bass drum, a trumpeter, and three boys on a bicycle, among others.

This map was illustrated by Norm Adams and published by The National Survey of Chester, Vermont in 1940.
