(1905 – 1983)

Walter T. Margetts was Chairman of the Frost Valley Association. Along with Henry Hird, he was responsible for finding and negotiating the transfer of Julius Forstmann’s 2,200-acre estate in the Catskill Mountains to what was then known as the Central Atlantic Area Council of the YMCA. The property is now known (and beloved) as Frost Valley YMCA. We owe a debt of gratitude to Margetts for securing this extraordinary location for our camp and we continue to keep his vision alive with its preservation.
