Working at Boy Scout Camp in Parishville

Robert Charron’s first job was at Camp Figure of the Woods, which was a Boy Scout camp in St. Lawrence County, near Parishville. When he was about 14, Charron worked in the trading post and had duties similar to a counselor. On Wednesdays, the camp’s mess hall would close for the night and they would take the campers out into the woods and cook their dinner at a campsite.
