Session One is in Full Swing!

Summer 2013 has BEGUN!

We are a few days into Session One and all 180 of us here at Pendalouan are having a blast! On Sunday, our first campers of 2013 arrived and since then, we've been enjoying some beautiful days in and on Big Blue Lake!

During Activity Period One, overnight campers are signed up for Newspaper, BB Guns/Air Rifles, Synchronized Swimming, Canoeing, Nature, Fitness Fun, Mt. Bikes, or Crafts. Overnight campers can choose between Survival, Swim Lessons, Crafts, Sports & Games, Drama, Archery, Music, or Mad Science for Activity Period Two.

We also have our Ropers & Wranglers and Fine Arts Specialty Camps this week. The Ropers are getting to know the horses well and learning a lot about riding! Our Fine Arts campers spent Monday painting scenes around camp (see below)!

More photos are available on our Facebook Page and our Website.

We are having a wonderful week and we're not done yet! Thursday is Extended Activity Day when campers get to spend a whole TWO HOURS with their favorite activities!

ALSO: Did you see we got a new website? We are very excited! Head to to check it out!

Staff Training starts THIS SUNDAY!

Friday marks the last official day of our Spring Outdoor Education Season. Summer Camp officially begins on Sunday with the start of our week of Staff Training. During our orientation week, our staff will learn about child psychology, how to teach activities, behavior management techniques, and how to promote good character and positive values. It's a long week, and we'll be providing updates throughout the week.
