Summer Camp

Weekly Themes 2018

Week 1: June 18th-22nd  Storybooks
Explore your favorite stories during this fun-filled week. Timmy and Suzy are returning to once again work on their summer reading list. Luckily, our campers are on hand to take on the roles of their favorite characters and bring them to life.

Week 2: June 25th-29th  Enchanted Forest
Merlin the Magnificent has discovered a magical forest where unicorns and centaurs roam freely and elves trade gems and tiles with trolls and gnomes. Join us for this new theme set firmly in the fantasy worlds of J.R.R. Tolkien and others, minus the politics and warfare.

Week 3: July 2nd-6th (No Camp July 4th)  Greek Gods
Zeus and the family return for their annual reunion and you know that whenever Greek Gods gather, things are bound to get interesting. Please note that camp is closed on July 4th, though Zeus has assured us that we’ll pack five days of fun in the remaining four.

Week 4: July 9th-13th  Alien Planets
Calling all Sci-Fi fans!!! Representatives from the Intergalactic Federation of Planets are making their way to Princeton, NJ and we want YOU to be there to join them. Learn about these strange Alien Planets and share the culture and customs of your own home world, whatever that might be.

Week 5: July 16th-20th  Pirates
Captain No-No Beard (it’s a double negative thing) has landed at the Jersey Shore and is making his way to the secret pirate Hoopla hidden in the woods of Princeton Friends. All scurvy scalawags, treasure-hunting ne’er-do-wells, and reckless rogues are obligated to attend this meeting to help select a new Pirate Queen or King.

Week 6: July 23rd-27th  Music
This beloved theme returns once again to Princeton Friends. Pop, rock, country, rap, and even Gregorian chant are just a few of the possible genres to be explored in this week of songs and dances. As campers explore the various styles and artists, they prepare for a concert performed for parents later in the week. Join us and find out why Music Week is one of our most popular themes.

Week 7: July 30th-August 3rd  Great Civilizations
Things are about to get all timey-wimey as representatives from some of the most famous and infamous civilizations from throughout the history of humankind return to Princeton Friends to help inspire the future. While history and learning are certainly on the menu, campers will also enjoy seeing the interactions of some of the strongest personalities in the history of the world.

Week 8: August 6th-10th  Superheroes
When last we left our fearless caped crusader of camp, Campman, things were just settling down following a tense stand-off between him and long-time ally Red Herring. Will the two be able to stay friends, or is this all leading to a Civil Peaceful Conflict Resolution through the Camp Olympics? There’s only one way to find out - be there!

Week 9: August 13th-17th  Witches and Wizards
One of our most requested themes makes its return after a two year hiatus. During his time away, Merlin the Magnificent has had many adventures (including one just a few weeks ago). Will this prolific prognosticator have new lessons to pass on to our young witches and wizards? Will the infamous Curse and beloved Charm cards return to cause all sorts of mischief? Our Magic 8-Ball says, “All signs point to yes!”
A progressive, Quaker day school welcoming students in Pre-K through 8th grade to our historic Princeton campus nestled in the woods.
