Student conferences, 1922-1950

Scope and Contents

Documents concerning the planning, proceedings and evaluation of regional meetings of student Christian associations in New England. Early conferences begin as meetings of the New England YWCA of the U.S.A. student associations and in 1937 YMCA student groups are invited to the first Student Christian Movement of New England joint summer conference. Student associations meet at conferences to discuss the role of religion on campus and in their lives, social, economic and political problems and trends in the student Christian movement. Many of the conferences are hosted at Camp O-At-Ka in East Sebago, Maine and Camp Maqua in Poland, Maine.
