 The 100th Anniversary of Camp Cajon 

 Mark Landis will present a talk about an exciting new project to build a replica of the stone monument that greeted guests at the entrance to the historic Camp Cajon, in the Cajon Pass.  The monument will be built near the former site of Camp Cajon, and construction will be timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the camp's opening in 1919.

Camp Cajon was a landmark auto rest stop and picnic area that opented on July 4th, 1919, near the current intersection of Interstate 15, and Highway 138.  The famous rest stop welcomed weary motorists traveling throught the Cajon Pass on old Route 66.  The camp was decimated by the great flood of 1938, and never reopened.
