New Camper Events: Check!

What an eventful weekend! We now have two successful new camper events under our belt and we couldn’t be more excited for summer 2016. Our new campers got to meet some of their future bunkmates and counselors as they bowled, tumbled, climbed, and ate lots of pizza! Their parents had the opportunity to connect with other new parents, too.

We are so lucky to have so many nice new families and can’t wait to see them in Greeley at NEW CAMPER WEEKEND on June 4-5th! We also hope to see many new faces at our FAMILY SKI DAY on February 27th. Oh, and did we mention that there are only 165 days until the buses make their way down Pine Forest Road?! That’s less than 6 months!

For more information on our upcoming events, check out our website, email , or call the winter office at (267) 639-2488. We’re here to answer any and all questions!

PFC 2015 Reunion: AWESOME!

We had such a blast at the reunion yesterday! It was awesome being able to spend time with our PFC family again and we could not be more excited for what next summer has in store.  A big thank you to everyone who came out, from campers to counselors, to head counselors and beyond. With buses from Westchester, Livingston, and Maryland, we were so thrilled with the turnout. Next up: PFC 2016!

We are having an open house in Blue Bell on Tuesday, November 3rd (Election Day!) from 11-1pm. We’ll be discussing our favorite topic: the magic of PFC! Directors from Camp Timber Tops and Lake Owego Camp will also be there.

Reunite!

There are friends at home, teammates at soccer leagues, and cousins who you see over the holidays, but there’s nothing like the bonds of camp friends, and especially bunkmates. Maybe it’s the conversations you have when the lights are out and you’re under the covers, or the campfires on an overnight with just your counselors. Perhaps it’s the candlelight ceremony when bunks cluster together and you can hear a few sniffles. Whatever it is, it’s special. And on Sunday, November 1st, we can all be together again. Bring your favorite memory of 2015, your plans for PFC 2016, and a hug for every camp friend. We can’t wait to see you there.
