We’re Glad You’re Here!

Wow! After a long winter of getting things ready (wait until you see the WHOA!), finally, it’s camp time…You guys are now on your way up to beautiful, sunny and fun Honesdale, Pennsylvania! Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride….We are going to have an awesome and exciting summer! We can’t wait till the buses pull into camp!!!! I will be in the Visitor’s Parking Lot with my special bus parking magnet!

Stephanie and I want to welcome everyone to the Summer of 2017 – The Best You’ve Ever Seen! And, a very extra special welcome to all first year campers!!! You will only feel new for about FIVE minutes and then everything will be okay! Your bunk mates and counselors will be friendly and helpful. When you arrive at camp, we will bring you to your bunk and get things started. In fact, tonight after dinner we have a fantastic Staff Welcome at the amphitheater!

Our first full day of activities starts tomorrow! Besides our usual great activities, we have some incredible special events, including a big campfire, Unique Entertainment, a magic show, scavenger hunt, The Towanda Open and of course, the first Friday Nite Flix of the summer!

Don’t worry if you are not sure where to go or what to do when you get here; your counselors will answer all of your questions and also help you every step of the way, all summer long!

All Big Brothers and Sisters, don’t forget to visit your “Little” at their bunk this afternoon (and tomorrow after lunch, too).

We’re looking forward to giving you all a big hello; we’ll see you when you step off the bus and then at evening flagpole.

Summer starts now!
