April 3, 1953 - New name picked for YMCA's camp: U-Nah-Li-Ya, an Indian word meaning "place of friends," is the new name selected for the YMCA boys camp at Chute Lake, near Mountain, Wis., it was announced today by Ben Erickson, "Y" camp committee chairman.

The name was selected by campers, camp committee people and "Y" members from a list of 100 entries in the camp name contest conducted earlier this year.

"The new name was chosen so that all groups, whether boys or girls, 'Y' groups or non 'Y' groups could use the same name and develop a loyalty to it and that a single identity for the camp could be established instead of the many names by which it was known," Erickson commented.

The meaning of the new camp name seems particularly appropriate for a YMCA camp which emphasizes the opportunity for boys and girls to develop new friendships in the wholesome, outdoor environment under friendly counselors.
