Adirondack Camp Signs
For the past four years, I have been looking for the right artist and craftsman to create a new sign for Penwood, one that will stand the test of time and represent the camp's character. The sign now posted on the road was purchased, believe it or not, at a horse show at which my sister was riding many, many years ago. It was never great to begin with and now is past its prime. It's rare to see a really great camp sign, one that is not too large or overdesigned. To be honest, the best sign I have seen recently is the Twin Coves sign, which is a plank painted white, with hand painted black lettering. Very simple, very true to the camp. If anyone knows of a great camp sign designer and maker, please let me know. We would love to find the right person to make this sign that I hope will stand for the next several decades as a faithful sentry to Penwood.
