Kindness Day, cont.

While our senior and hi-senior campers are having amazing adventures out of camp, our junior and inter campers are having lots of fun of their own! We’ve been immersed in Kindness Day! 

Campers participated in various activities around camp focusing on team building activities, expressing gratitude and appreciation, and mindfulness exercises. We made cards for others, worked together to help beautify camp, bonded over sing-alongs and s’mores around a campfire, and so much more! One of the most magical moments of Kindness Day was last night when all campers filled the dining hall together. Each bunk gathered around a table and every bunkmate wrote their name on a piece of paper. Then, everyone passed each piece of paper around the table until everyone ended up with a message of love and appreciation from each of their bunkmates filling their papers. No doubt these notes will be cherished forever. 

This time of camp – when upper camp gets to experience travel together and lower camp has PFC to themselves – really is such a special time for everyone. As these activities wrap up and we’re all back together again tomorrow for regularly scheduled programming, everyone’s feeling rejuvenated and excited for the final two weeks to come!

  1. This came out of the blue and it brought back many memories, most then being good ones! I spent one extra-long Summer here in ‘96. I went out early and did lots of camp work with the Maintenance guys and then took up my post as canoe instructor on the Delaware and then Director of the Lake with the legendary Tom Gorski!
    I did hear the sad news a year or two back about Mickey’s son. I think I coached him in a soccer (it’s football, guys!) match on one occasion. They lost!
    Sadly, I know what it is like to lose a child. I can only send my ❤️ from across the Pond. 🇬🇧
    I did make contact with camp a few times over the years but didn’t hear back. Hey-ho.
    Well, the Summer of ‘96 was a blast! I made some good friends and I am still in touch with Jonny Flint who now lives in the Buck-Eye State.
    It all seems like a lifetime ago as I turn 50 v soon.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you all at PFC!
