Why should I attend?

If you have a child who is camping or are interested in having your child camp during our summer camp programming, this is an opportunity for you to learn more and introduce your child to the setting they will be in for at least one week of the summer (we’d love to see them both weeks).

This is an opportunity for you to get some information from us, ask any questions you might have as we lead up to the camp season, and get a very small taste of the summer camp experience we design for your children in the summer.

What will we be doing?

The main goal of this event is to get you and your children oriented to the program so that both of you are as comfortable as possible when the week of camp your child is camping finally arrives. To do that, we will be doing the following:

  • A campus walk through (to familiarize everyone with the campus and give some information on what takes place in the different areas)

  • Meeting and greeting other parents, campers, and staff ( a chance to get to know other parents who have sent or are sending their children to camp as well as talk to some staff members who have worked here and camped here before. All done with snacks and refreshments, of course)

  • Eating Together (we will have a meal with some of the summer fare and talk a little more about the summer camp program and our goals for the summer)

  • Games and Activities (we will explore one or two of the team competition games from the summer and talk through the activities, or electives, available to your children during the summer)

  • Fun Time (the pool will be open and a bounce house available to give your kids some quick downtime before we head into our closing activity)

  • Bonfire/Closing (Although it will still be light out, we will hold a brief bonfire - with smore’s - and discuss why we hold this as our closing exercise in the summer. This is a time where you can hear some testimony from staff and former campers about their experiences at PMBC. After the short bonfire, everyone is free to stay up until 8pm and hang out in the dining hall with some more snacks and refreshments)
