I remember the first time I visited and became smitten with the Camp Ground on Martha’s Vineyard when my family summered on Island in the 1970s. For Kathryn Allen, it all started with a Grand Illumination Night. She and her young vacationing family stumbled on the annual August event, in which the roughly 300 cottages of the Camp Ground are festooned with glowing colorful paper lanterns. “I just floated through that night. I thought, ‘This is the most magical experience I’ve ever had,’” she recalls.
