College Day
College Day
Get on the right track! On the morning of College Day, four teams compete in the best of track and field. Sprint. Relay race. Do the long jump. Cheer on your friends. There’s a swim meet and all-inclusive marathon “steeplechase” relay race. With so many great events, it's easy to go for the gold. Everybody has fun!

Color Days
Color Days
Here's your chance to show your true colors. For three days, camp is divided into two teams, our camp colors—the blue and the gold. The objective: to compete with friends in a variety of exciting events like tug-of-war, crazy skits and many Olympic-style sporting events. "The Sing" is the big finale. Each team must sing their favorite fight, marching and camp songs for points. It's wild. It's wacky. It's tons of fun. So let the games begin!

Fourth of July
Fourth of July
There are parades on main streets around the country, picnics in almost every backyard, and fireworks at stadiums from California to New York. But in the whole USA., there's no place better than PFC on the Fourth of July! Wake up to patriotic music, enjoy a red, white and blue breakfast (waffles with whipped cream, blueberries and strawberries), participate in a carnival at camp with water slides, face-painting, dunk-tanks, and a high energy multi-dimensional talent show. Then it's fireworks, like you can only enjoy at camp; right on Mitchell Field with music, cheers, and friends.

Theme Days
Theme Days
To add an extra spark each week we introduce a theme, around which we coordinate activities, special events, songs, and even meals. Some examples of past themes are Camp Rock, Super Heroes, Halloween in July, Blue and Gold "Go Green", and International Week. Each summer brings new creativity. What will this summer's themes be?

Each summer, campers in Upper Camp can have a fun-filled, action-packed overnight trip during the second half of camp. Campers will stay overnight in a university dormitory and experience the local culture and flavors of the city.
