Red, White, Blue and Gold

Happy 4th from PFC!

We’ve gotta admit, of all of the special days at camp, the 4th of July is one of the best! The fun starts from the moment we wake up, and it doesn’t stop until the fireworks are over.

Our PFC tradition is that our oldest girl campers – the hi-senior 10s – wake up early to get decked out in their red, white, and blue, and then run around camp waking everyone up. There’s music, there’s excitement, and…there’s A LOT of energy at 7:30am! Campers pop out of bed and get dressed for the day, and PFC becomes a sea of red, white, and blue! There are wigs, face paint, hair spray, tutus, fun headbands…and so much more! 

4th of July breakfast does not disappoint! French toast, blueberries, strawberries, and whipped cream fill our American Flag plates. To top it all off, we have delicious Krispy Kreme donuts. Are you drooling yet? Later, for lunch, we BBQ in true 4th of July fashion.

Our afternoon starts off with an epic counselor parade, where counselors dress up as American icons and parade around camp. Then, our junior, inter, and senior campers have a carnival full of fun games (run by our hi-senior 10s!), time to swim in the pool, and time to climb and play around in giant inflatables – what a blast! Meanwhile, our hi-senior 9 campers spend the afternoon having a 4th of July Lake Luau. 

After a delicious dinner of southern fried chicken, we reconvene as a camp at Netsy Playhouse for the infamous 4th of July Talent Show. Campers and counselors have been practicing, and trust us – this will be the show of the century! There will be singing, there will be dancing, and there will be SO.MUCH.MORE!

And of course – the 4th of July would not be complete without fireworks. From the show, we’ll all head out to Mitchell Field together to OOOOH and AHHHH over amazing fireworks, before our heads hit the pillow and we rest up after an EPIC day. 

No better place to spend the 4th than PFC!
