A Perfect Saturday: Pendalouan Day 2015 Recap

Pendalouan Day 2015 was a day to remember, here’s what happened:

Last weekend, 125 alumni, family and friends came out to camp to celebrate over 90 years of making an impact!  There was an incredible mix of past and present staff members, campers and even some multi generational Pendy families.  Two former campers, one from ’45 and one from ’49, were in attendance, giving each generation since the 1940’s representation.

There were memory displays with old camper handbooks, photos, newspaper articles, staff manuals, camp newsletter and other mementos to examine and bring back old memories. There were crafts on the deck of the lodge, canoes out on Big Blue, arrows in targets, smiles on faces and a beautiful display of Pendalouan sweatshirts.  

Eddie Boersema’s lifetime of service to Pendalouan was honored at the EBEAC (Eddie Boersema Education and Activity Center) dedication ceremony, click here to learn about the project.

Thank you’s:
To John and Kathy Workman who had an incredible impact on the EBEAC, we can’t thank you enough! There are many donors that contributed to this effort, community organizations, foundations and individual donors all helped make this building possible.

There might be no better way to spend a day than swapping camp stories with fellow Pendalouan alumni and friends.  Thanks to everyone who made it out to Pendalouan Day!

Another exciting weekend is happening at camp on the 30th, it's Halloween Camp!  A crazy 24 hour camp full of games, costumes and fun!  (There may be candy involved..)
