Founders Through the Years

Prior to 1924, Alexander, Danforth, Orwig and Waite were leaders at the International Sunday School Association camp conferences at Lake Geneva in Wisconsin.  These men, the Four Founders, formed the American Youth Foundation and revised the ISSA program concept to create “research camps” for 1925. 

All participants in any program are still known as Founders and Founder Friends.
