Alex Cheung, a 33-year-old South Boston resident, was looking forward to meeting friends in Provincetown for a day trip Thursday — so he hopped on a large ferry in the Seaport called the “Provincetown II.’’
But it wasn’t going to P-town. Cheung had accidentally boarded a boat taking more than 400 young campers to Boston’s Long Island for another day at Camp Harbor View.
Luckily for Cheung, Boston businessman and philanthropist Jack Connors was also on the boat. Connors founded Camp Harbor View in 2007 and traveled to the island Thursday morning because of a visit from Mayor Martin J. Walsh.
