Socialism in Two Summer Communities

Socialism in Two Summer Communities

(p.25) Chapter Two Socialism in Two Summer Communities

Bruce Dancis

Cornell University Press

The author recounts his experience with socialism while he was growing up living in two summer communities: the Three Arrows Cooperative Society in New York and Buck’s Rock Work Camp in New Milford, Connecticut. He first provides an overview of the culture and politics of the Three Arrows Cooperative Society, which was founded in 1936 by members of the Socialist Party of America and the Young People’s Socialist League. He then considers the Three Arrows’s influence on what he became and who he is before turning to his participation in a New York rally against the Vietnam War on June 8, 1965. He also reflects on his time at Buck’s Rock Work Camp, a sleepover summer camp founded in the 1940s by Ernst and Ilsa Bulova, from 1961 to 1965. Finally, he focuses on two people identified with Buck’s Rock who made a significant impact on his life and political development: Happy Traum and David McReynolds.
