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 29th- August 2nd  Myths and Legends
Zeus has grown tired of hanging out on Mt. Olympus with only his family for company.  To help shake things up, he sent out invitations to all of the neighboring pantheons and has hopes that he will be visited by Egyptian, Polynesian, Asian, African, Norse, Native American, and other gods and goddesses from around the world.  Who knows what will happen when these beings descend upon the woods at PFC, but we're certain it will be exciting!
 
Week 8: August 5th-9th  Holidays
Holidays are celebrated world over, but how many of us know about the traditions and celebrations that take place outside of our own communities?  Join us as we explore the four seasons of the year through the holidays celebrated by a wide-range of cultures.  Perhaps we'll inspire some new traditions along the way!
 
Week 9: August 12th-16th  Wild West
