Lee’s List: Favorite Evening Activities!

#10 – Blanket Basketball. It is what it is.

#9 – Social. Right? Who’s with me!?

#8 – Capture the Flag: Because to this day, I still do not fully understand Capture the Asagi.

#7 – Basketball Leagues. Under the lights. Lace ’em up!

#6 – Stealth Marble Band: Takes place on the nature trail involving marbles and rubber bands, oh my!

#5 – Escape from PFC: Costa’s ice cream? Yes, please.

#4 – Counselor Hunt: They’re not as fast as they look.

#3 – Luau: Always pack a Hawaiian shirt. ALWAYS! (In 2000, my entire bunk, Bunk Fir, wore Hawaiian shirts for our bunk picture. Our parents were less than thrilled).

#2 – GOLD RUSH: A multilayered event with costumes, real gold, fools gold, a general store…To this day, I think my backpack still has gold paint on the inside.

#1 – Campfire. Call me old-fashioned but to me, there’s nothing better than hanging with your buddies around the fire. Not necessarily a ‘kumbaya’ campfire. I’m talking jokes, songs, s’mores, more jokes and DEFINITELY more s’mores. And, if it’s a boys campfire, the fire has gotta be BIG. Right? Men?

The Candlelight Ceremony

Like a shooting star. Like a spark at a camp fire. Like the flicker of a candle. Pine Forest Camp’s 84th season  is almost over.

It’s a chilly night tonight. And as dusk fell, if you looked up at the tree tops  rustling  in the breeze, you could see a red or gold leaf fall to the ground, the first signs of Autumn. It’s time to go home.

We gather together one last time until we return for PFC’s 85th summer, sharing the warmth of friendship. This magical place seems so far from the rest of the world, like we’re in some faraway kingdom of goodness and happiness.

Arm in arm, we sing for the last time this year, “Friends, friends, friends  we will always be…”

Let it be so.

Pine Forest Camp Sets Sail!

Last night campers all over the world went to bed at home with great hopes and big dreams for the summer. New  friends, fun and adventure.  And today their dreams will come true.

Step off those buses, out of your cars, off of the airplanes and step into your summer home. We can’t wait to welcome you.

Parents, relax. We’ll take over from here.    Your children are in good hands, the best.

All of the planning and preparation is over and the first campers have arrived just hours ago.

Pine Forest’s 84th summer  begins now.

So sing it as loud as you can, from Florida, to New York City to Europe and back to Bethesda, Maryland  and Cherry Hill, New Jersey. It’s the Pine Forest Welcome song, “We welcome you to Pine forest, we’re mighty glad you’re here. We’ll set the air reverberating with a might cheer!”

Let the fun begin. Our ship sets sail now. All good things are yet to come.
