  • 'CAMP' Memoir-Eisner talks up another world of fun- 5/31/05

    Full text available here:,2222695.story

    We're up in an executive suite high in the ABC corporate headquarters in Manhattan with one of the biggest guns in Hollywood, Michael Eisner. During an amazing 40-year run in the entertainment industry, Eisner has been a senior vice president at ABC (where he fostered such television hits as "Happy Days" and "Roots"), president of Paramount Pictures (where he green-lighted "Raiders of the Lost Ark," "Grease" and "Terms of Endearment") and, for the past 21 years, chief executive of Disney, where he oversaw the expansion of an unprecedented media empire.

    But does he want to discuss any of that today?

    Nor does he want to talk about his retirement from Disney next year, after highly publicized disagreements with company executives and shareholders.

    All he wants to talk about, in this corporate aerie overlooking the urban woodlands of Central Park, is ... summer camp.

    15 summers in Dunmore

    Eisner, you see, is the author of a quaint new memoir titled "Camp" (Warner Books, $22.95), the story of his experiences at Camp Keewaydin in rustic Lake Dunmore, Vt., where he was first a camper and then a counselor between 1950 and 1964.

    But this is not an "All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten"-style bromide, nor a blueprint for aspiring prepubescent businessmen. It is a sweet, simply told (if rose-tinted) account of Eisner's tenure at Keewaydin, paired with the story of two Southern California youngsters who were sent to the camp by the Eisner Foundation in the summer of 2002.
