Civilian Camp Gets New Name

"AZR", December 27, 1933

A new name now graces the 400-man Civilian Conservation Corps camp in Phoenix Mountain Park, according to word received yesterday from Eighth Corps Area headquarters, Fort Sam Houston, Tex.

The camp will be known as the Phoenix Metropolitan Park camp.

Two companies-Nos. 830 and 831--of 200 men each are camped within the park, carrying out trail-building and many other improvement projects.
