Greetings Camp Pine Crest Families (and future campers)!
I cannot wait to be back again for another summer at Pine Crest. I am so grateful for the work I get to do, but more importantly for the impact it has on our campers and families! This summer I am excited to watch as our campers make friends, take on responsibility, learn skills, connect with the natural world and develop independence. While it can be hard for both campers and parents to take the leap of faith, I know that the decision to go to camp will be worthwhile for you and your family!
Just like we have done for more than 100 years, Pine Crest is committed to making sure your camp experience is about more than fun. In addition to having the time of your life, you will learn to thrive in your life outside of camp. I love hearing the feedback that after visiting Pine Crest a camper developed the confidence to make new friends at school, or has started volunteering to take responsibility at home by doing the dishes. To me, having fun and learning is the best combination possible - a combination we strive to perfect every summer at Pine Crest.
I hope you will join us next summer for fun, learning, lifelong friendships and incredible memories!
In Camp Friendship,
