Yard Sales... Colorado...Alumni and More!

At Camp Pendalouan it seems we are never not busy, which we love! This past weekend we had in Women's Adventure Weekend "The Great Escape." The ladies enjoyed just hanging out, trying new activities and having quality time to relax. It was another successful year and we plan on seeing them in 2011.

This weekend is our big Yard Sale, imagine how much stuff you can put in your Yard Sale... a lot. Now imagine the amount of stuff at a Camp Yard Sale! We are sure it'll be a great weekend, in our area there is quite the contingent of "Yard Salers" who spend time each weekend hunting the best deals and unique finds, they will love our sale.

Exciting news from the Camp Office, our Directors Bruce and Lori, and Alumni Development girl Kalin are gearing up for the big National Y-Camping Conference in Estes Park, Colorado! They plan on heading out next weekend to drive West for a coming together of Y-Leaders from around the country. It's sure to be a riot. You can follow the trip on our Facebook, Twitter and right here on the blog to keep track of their big adventure.

Lastly, registration for Alumni & Friends Weekend is still underway. The response we're getting thus far is big and we are sure it'll be a great event. E-mail to register. Hope to see you there!

This week our "Pendy Gear" photo was taken in Northfield, Minnesota at Carleton College. Two of our summer staff were there and by chance both were wearing their favorite t-shirts!

Enjoy your week, talk soon.

"Where In The World Is Camp Pendalouan?"

We have an announcement! A call to action! Something exciting! Do YOU or someone you know have a picture wearing Pendalouan Gear at a cool destination? Maybe you wore your Camp Pendalouan hooded sweatshirt at Disneyworld this year, or perhaps you wore your Blue Team CTF t-shirt at Niagra Falls this past summer. And of COURSE we need to see you wearing your Pendalouan long-sleeve at the top of Mt. Everest!

We are starting a campaign to see any and every picture with Pendalouan gear around the world! If you have a photo with Pendalouan Gear in a cool background send it to and let us know the story of your photo. You will see it posted here!

We cannot wait to see what you come up with.
Have a great day!
