AYF Archive Uploads

A place for you to contribute camp memoirs

Since 1925, items have been collected, organized and preserved at each camp and the St. Louis office.  These include business records, photos, publications, memorabilia, and other materials.  

The Heritage Trail Archives Project allows campers, staff and alumni to share their experiences and explore programs from other eras. 

Miniwanca’s printed materials and memorabilia are located in the Founders Room of Four Seasons and the I Dare You Library.  Merrowvista has collections in Danforth Lodge and The Farmhouse.  The archival material pertaining to the overall American Youth Foundation is housed at the St. Louis office.

You are welcome to upload digitized media of your favorite memories right here. If you encounter difficulties, contact jstrube@ayf.com.
