Though we can have first time campers at any age, this program is younger campers and is limited to those entering grades 1 through 4 in the fall. First time campers have the opportunity to come for a few days and get a taste of Camp Pendola and camp life. Come on Sunday, but go home on Wednesday after supper. Go on an overnight and cook out supper, swim every day, and don’t forget the opening night campfire. There’s a lot to pack in during just four days. Each session follows theTraditional Camp theme of the week. The program is designed with the needs of the younger camper in mind

Morning activities are done with the cabin group. Shoot bows and arrows at the archery range or learn how to build a fire. Both of these activties happen with your cabin in the morning.
Afternoon activities are ones that campers sign up for. Maybe going to the pond, or a game of soccer on the front lawn. How about making Ice Cream on the dining room deck.
Evening activities include everyone in camp. Sunday is the opening campfire. Monday evening might be a night hike. Tuesday night you will be on your overnight.
