The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was a voluntary public work relief program that ran from 1933 to 1942 in the United States for unemployed, unmarried men ages 18 to 25, eventually expanded to ages 17 to 28. Considered by many to be one of the most successful of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal programs, the CCC planted more than three billion trees and constructed trails and shelters in more than 800 parks nationwide during its nine years of existence. Company 1218's main camp was in Proctorsville, Vermont, known as Camp Proctor, Camp No. 2194 in Proctor-Piper State Forest. This company built roads, a picnic area, and ski and bridle trails, which are depicted in this album. The company also worked on Project No. MC-73 Dias Creek in Cape May, New Jersey, in August 1935, photographs of which also appear in the album. Most of the images show young workers together at work and during leisure time.
