In Case Your Camper Fell Asleep on the Car Ride Home: Session 5

The memories made this past week at camp will carry us until we meet again on the shores of Big Blue Lake.  
    

Here are the highlights of session 5:
-This beautiful summer weather was finally here to stay.
-Disney characters made an appearance on the shores of Big Blue Lake; from Cinderella and Mickey Mouse to Pinocchio and Snow White.
-Sometimes it’s the little things that make summer camp special, like a sky filled with stars or a 7am jump in the lake.
-New skills were learned, such as fire building and bracelet making.
-Slip n’ slides are the best way to cool off on a hot day.
-The four core values were practiced, allowing everyone to just be themselves.
-Old camp friends were reunited, and new friendships were created.
-We all walked away with incredible memories, new experiences and brighter spirits.








Session 6 is underway!  The days are long but the weeks are short, let's go out with a bang!
Hail Pendalouan!

In Case Your Camper Fell Asleep on the Car Ride Home: Session 4


The spirit of Pendalouan burns bright in each and every one of us as we head home on Friday.


Here are the highlights of Session 4:
-A winter wonderland came to the shores of Big Blue Lake, there was a tree lighting ceremony as well as a holiday feast!
-The waterfront was booming during both morning and afternoon free time.
-Camp is a place where everyone can be themselves, and that’s exactly what happened.
-Daily games of foursquare, gaga ball and scatterball were played.
-Many slushies happily consumed.
-A fear of heights and feeling homesick were conquered. 
-Everyone in camp left a shoe out on Thursday night and received a surprise on Friday morning!
-Crafts class brought home beautiful handmade pillows.
-Even with full sessions, each week feels like one big family.
Summer camp is the smiliest time of the year!











Because after all, there's no greater gift than friendship.
Time to get ready for session 5, the Magic Kingdom.
See you Sunday!
