WOW! Friday was an action-packed day at PFC. We closed out our first week of camp with lots of fun! 

For starters, we had our first inter-camp day – Greeley Games – where Pine Forest, Camp Timber Tops, and Lake Owego all played sports against one another. Campers could sign up to play soccer, basketball, baseball, gaga, and/or softball. Next week we’ll do it again, adding even more games to the list: chess, swimming, archery, gymnastics, and more!

For lunch, we had a real fan favorite: quesadillas with all the fixings! YUM. Speaking of yum, we also had our very first camp Friday night dinner. We were practically sprinting to the dining hall for the world’s best challah, delicious matzo ball soup, BBQ chicken, and then chocolate matzah for dessert. The BEST.

Our day ended with our first Friday night service, where we gathered as a whole camp for the first time. Looking up at the stands at Netsy Playhouse, a sea of campers and counselors in their blue and gold – you could really feel the camp love! Bunk Buttercup led us in a beautiful service, where they each shared something they’ve learned in the first week of camp. 

The fun didn’t stop there, though! Junior boys were off to play Gaga, a Friday night tradition. They especially loved cheering on their counselors when they took a turn in the Gaga pit. Inter boys played a fun game of PFC trivia. Senior boys were busy playing team handball, and our hi-senior boys played a crowd favorite too: knee hockey. With all that action, they slept well last night! 

Girls’ camp gathered for their first Friday night campfire! They sang songs together, danced, and of course – made s’mores! It was a big hit. One of the counselors played guitar for everyone, which makes for great sing-alongs. Campers also received their special G.I.R.L.S. bracelets, made up of 5 strings that represent Gratitude, Inspiration, Respect, Love, and Support.  

How is it possible that we’ve already been here a week? Slow down, time! Bring on the weekend! We’re ready for more.
