Our Strange Skies

Every year, a handful of cars take a stroll down a dirt road just off of Clay Point Road in Colchester, Vermont. They’re often lured their by the nostalgia of a former all-girls camp known as Buff Ledge. For 25 years, the camp produced many undefeated swim teams, as well as state and regional champions. 

In 1968 the camp earned a reputation as a place where an alien abduction had taken place. It was preserved in the graffiti on camp walls as crude caricatures of UFOs shooting beams of light. Walter N Webb, a UFO investigator, saw the art for himself as a walked among the skeletal remains of the camp in the early 80s.

Today, the camp is a “co-op community is for people who want to live in the country ‘but don’t want to be lonely.’” (https://www.colchestersun.com/shores-buff-ledge/)   The camp, like the memories of an alien abduction decades old, exists in secret, but if you find the right person, they might just talk about the night two young adults were taken on board a UFO on the shores of Lake Champlain.

Special thanks to Mark Rodeghier of CUFOS for tracking down a copy of Walter Webb’s book. If you can donate to their cause, please visit their website! (http://www.cufos.org/index.html)
