Charles Grant and his airplane, in Peru Vermont

Duncan Camp is only referred to once in the April, 1925 edition of the Green Mountain News (“Long Trail News”)

“The Duncan Camp of Boy Building has a camp in Peru, not far from the LT, and extends a cordial invitation to hikers over the trail to visit the camp and enjoy its hospitality. ”

This refers to the “Duncan Grant Camp” or “Duncan Camp for Boy Building”, a model airplane summer camp for boys. The camp was founded by Charles Hampson Grant, who named it after his younger brother Duncan, after he died flying a Sopwith Camel in World War I. [Early Aviators,]

Charles Grant was Vermont’s first aviator, and lifelong model airplane enthusiast. He would later go on to be a prolific designer of model airplanes and become the editor of the magazine “Model Airplane News”
