Camden is a summer center of the sort of  WASP (faux and real)/preppie culture from which Ralph Lauren and some other designers draw inspiration.

"I have always been inspired by the dream of America  -- families in the country, weathered trucks and farmhouses; sailing off the coast of Maine; following dirt roads in an old wood-paneled station wagon; a convertible filled with young college kids sporting crew cuts and sweatshirts and frayed sneakers.''

-- Ralph Lauren, the clothes designer and retailer.
