I lived at Kallman from 52-Feb 54……..So many stories to tell.

Wonderful memories.  Best placed I had ever lived after many not so nice
foster homes. I would love to make contact with Rose Morales. We were
more like sisters and did get into a lot of mischief. Oh, about the
boys sneaking peeks in the girls’ showers from the roof…we knew you
were there and that’s why we took our baths in the dark. ┬áVery
soothing……….My brothers had left before I came ( Pete and Carl
Skoglund) They were a hard act to follow

  1. I remember Rose. We were all at Camp Joy together and Rose decided to roll around in poison ivy to see what happened. She even rubbed it on her tongue. And speaking of Camp Joy – the orange bridge, Miss Darlene, bug juice. And the talent show we put on at the end of our stay.

  2. Hi,
    My great grandfather and his sister lived at the original Kallman in 1908 after their father died.
    There names were Oscar Albin (age 10) & Ruth Victoria (age 8) Liljestrand. There parents were Swedish immigrants arriving in 1892. This was a beautiful gift to the children of Brooklyn.

  3. Hello Anita. One of my good buddies at the home was your brother, Carl.
    Yes I remember camp joy and the wonderful bug juice; that was days out of the city. Wow, remembering these moments!

    I lived at Kallman from about 1948-1957 – when the new administrator came in and hurt many of the alumni by not allowing them to visit their friends. So, we would meet at Fort Hamilton High School; enjoying one another again.
