The camps wererun by the army with anaverage of 54 camps inoperation for each year from1933-1942. The enrollees were paid $1 a day with $25sent home to their familieseach month. The money kept many families fromstarving. The CCC in Ohio planted90 million trees, builthundreds of bridges anddams, constructed over 3500miles of truck trails, stockedfish, fought forest fires, andbuilt several state parksincluding Tar Hollow, Scioto Trail and Shawnee StateForest. The camps not only revitalized Ohio's naturalresources but also turned theMichigan based author Bill Jamerson will present amusic and storytelling program about the CivilianConservation Corps at thePortsmouth Public Library on Friday, September 21,2012 at 2 pm.

He has performedat CCC reunions around thecountry and at dozens of CCC built state and nationalparks. His presentation is asentertaining as it isimportant; as honest as it isfun. It's about people bothordinary and extraordinary, with stories of strength, witand charm. The Civilian ConservationCorps was a federal worksprogram created by Presidentboys into men by giving themdiscipline and teaching them work skills. Along with a novel and CDof songs on the CCC, Jamerson has produced a
