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. Each program will feature the same PFC fun you've come to expect, while campers learn, refine, and develop a variety of skills.
