Summer Camp

Princeton Friends Camp @Home

Due to the current health crisis, we are suspending our on-site camp activities for Summer 2020. Camp will continue online with Princeton Friends Camp @Home and Princeton Summer Enrichment.


From 9:00 am -12:00 pm each day Monday - Friday, we’ll be offering Princeton Friends Camp @Home.

Campers will join one of six units (C,A,M,P,E, or R) for a week of adventures, activities, and community. Each day will begin with a unit meeting where campers and a unit director will discuss the theme and the activities for the day. Campers will then explore two activities designed to recreate the camp experience at home. One day a camper might build on to their @Home village (in the basement or backyard) before working on their Superhero costume. Another day a camper might write a song to share with the unit and then listen to a Jimmy story on the back porch. Between these activities, campers will check-in with their unit during snack time to socialize and share what they’ve done.

Each day will end with Community @Home, hosted by Courtney and Jimmy. Community @Home will include cheers, characters, stories, songs, and all of the fun of Community in the woods, minus the occasional gubernatorial helicopter overhead. Princeton Friends Camp @Home offers campers a way to connect with our beloved community and bring a bit of the magic home while keeping us all safe.
 
In the afternoon, Princeton Friends Summer Enrichment takes over.

From 1:00 - 4:00 pm things settle down a little bit and we focus on a variety of exciting offerings. Fans of our Art Camp program will be happy to hear that Sam is working with Zoe to offer Art Enrichment from 1:00 - 4:00 pm each afternoon. Firoozeh, a long-time faculty member at the Katzenbach School for the Deaf, will be offering American Sign Language courses in one-hour sessions over three weeks. These two offerings are the first of several that will be announced over the next few weeks. We’ll keep you updated as more courses are added!
