Summer 2014 Recap!

Summer 2014 was one for the books, with a record number of overnight, day and family campers joining us on the shores of Big Blue Lake for a Pendalouan Summer Camp Experience.

As we've begun our Fall programs (such as our Outdoor Education and Seasonal programs), we've also been evaluating our Summer here at camp (while also preparing for Summer 2015!). Here are some of the highlights from Summer 2014:
  • We had over 1,000 overnight and day campers spend a week or more at Pendalouan  making friends, building character, and creating memories that will last a lifetime. Once again, we had several sessions and specialty camps fill up, which meant more waiting lists this summer than we've had in years!  These numbers don't even include the campers that came for field trips through other summer programs or any of our family campers!
  • Our overnight camp featured some amazing new activities such as Gardening, Outdoor Cooking, Circus Training, Yoga & Meditation, Self Defense, and the Pendy Choir. 
  • The 2014 Summer Staff collectively contributed over $1,400 of their own money for Pendalouan's Campership Fund. What a testament to how much they believe in their own work!
  • There were several new t-shirt and sweatshirt designs in the Trading Post with new colors and… Neon!
  • Over 110 fathers, sons, grandpas, and uncles came out for our Father-Son Camp weekend... one of Pendalouan's longest running traditions! 
  • The breathtaking view and new deck of Wildwood Chapel made Evening Taps (all camp song singing) unforgettable. 
Below are just some of the photos taken this summer. For more, check out our Facebook Page and the Photo Album on our Website. 



















It truly was an amazing summer here at Camp Pendalouan! Throughout the summer, we had warm wishes, visits, and donations from alumni, parents and other members of the Pendalouan community who were too old to come to Summer Camp. We thank everyone for helping us making Summer 2014 one of the best ever!
