Lisa Hart and Kenneth Steuer met in 1973 when they were teens at an overnight camp. They reconnected in 2011 in a social media page for the camp’s alumni.
Many sleepaway camp loyalists maintain that the camp experience continues to provide benefits throughout life, and for Lisa Jane Hart and Kenneth Neil Steuer, one of those was a later-in-life romance.
The two met in August 1973 at Farm Camp Lowy in Windsor, N.Y., a small camp that drew mostly children from New York and New Jersey, whose parents appreciated that the place hosted no color wars. Ms. Hart was 13 and Mr. Steuer 15. He had a secret crush on her. She had a crush on someone else in his bunkhouse.
Nearly 40 years later, courtesy of a Facebook page set up by Farm Camp Lowy’s alumni, the two reconnected when Mr. Steuer, in 2011, posted a fond memory of camp: The night they had a coed sleepover and he secured a spot for his sleeping bag next to Ms. Hart’s. He also suggested in the post that he might still have a crush on her.
