We Love Our Explorers!

A little rain never stops us! We just had our last Explorer weekend of the summer and boy was it a fun one! We had an amazing group of families with future campers going into 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades. They got to play in the lake (which is extra fun in the rain, by the way!), go on the giant swing at adventure, make projects in arts and crafts and play games with Chad. They were even able to have a campfire despite the weather, by bringing it indoors! They slept in real bunks with real counselors and bunkmates who will soon be their lifelong camp friends. We look forward to seeing them back next summer as PFC campers!

If you are or know anyone thinking about camp, we still have a Play Day on August 6th and would love to share Pine Forest with you! Call the office for more information or register online!

Crickets

There are three signs that nature sends us every summer to let us know that camp is fleeting; going too fast. First we see the Canadian geese overhead, in tight V formation flying low over Mitchell Field heading south in advance of the cold. You can hear the squawking as they approach, zeroing in on their flight path.

Next is the sight of the first red leaves. Usually, you can find them down by the lake. There they are, on the tips of the tallest trees, red, yellow and gold waving in the breeze coming off Lake Greeley. It’s always the first week in August, just before Color Days, color!

And finally there are the crickets. They start at dusk, just as the sun goes down over the tree tops above the girls pool. You can hear just a few, here and there, during the month of July. The sound gets louder each week. Louder and louder, a crescendo, until the final days of camp, when they sound like a symphony. Sometimes you have to raise your voice to be heard over the cacophony of sound.

The smell of pines, the sight of a Milky Way of stars above, the feel of brisk mountain air and the happy crazy sound of crickets.
