Camp Winnecunnet, the Y.W.C.A. camp on West Chop road, Vineyard Haven, has been sold this week to Miss Kathleen Hinni, representing the School of Creative Arts which she has conducted in the town for the past several years. The sale, as yet uncompleted, was made through the office of Mrs. O. B. Weeks, formerly Miss Mary Nunes, of Oak Bluffs.

Miss Hinni, speaking to the Gazette of the purchase, said that the school will eventually occupy the property together with other departments, not yet entirely arranged for. “We hope to incorporate,” she said, interested people together at this time, and thus our plans are not completed.”

However, she made it plain that under the new and expanded program, the season of activities will be prolonged for a month or more and that groups never before associated with the school will be brought into the picture.

The camp property consists of seven and a half acres of land between the West Chop road and Vineyard Haven’s outer harbor. It is so covered with tall oaks as to constitute an unbroken grove, in which are located the main house, an assembly hall, several small buildings for classes, and about fifteen cabins. The property includes about 600 feet of shore front on the harbor.

The property was bequeathed to the Y.W.C.A. by the late Walter Soren in 1922, with the provision that it must be put to use by the organization. Should the property remain unused for a period of more than three consecutive years, it was to ho to the Women’s Seaman’s Friend Society of Boston, subject to the same and similar provisions. The camp has not been opened for some years and it now appears that neither of the beneficiaries is able to make practical use of it, since the sale is being made by the two, jointly.

Notice of the signing of the sales agreement through the Mary Nunes real estate agency, was given to the Gazette by Mrs. Arthur H. Brooks Jr., camp chairman.
