Days Until Camp

news from the pointfor campers

The beautiful decor at our Banquet prepared the the Peakers.

The Peakers hosted a great banquet tonight, bravely themed “The Show Must Go On” based around Broadway and the theatre.  What a great theme! Thank you Peakers for again showing your leadership to camp. You are a hard act to follow.

At Point O’Pines we have so many truly outstanding women amongst our campers. We were able to recognize some of our stars!

Welcome to Banquet 2019.

What a great team competition this summer from an alien breakout and then scavenger hunt to a nail-biting Wacked-Up Relay to last night’s superb Team Sing.  Both teams were amazing players and great competitors.  Our Peakers were inspirational leaders for the younger campers.  There is an overall winner and this year it is the White Team.

Team Competition has begun.  On Monday night dinner was delayed by aliens (well, Peaker aliens, anyway).  The Peak called us to the Rec Hall, where the Team Captains and Lieutenants emerged from the smoky stage and led camp outside for an outstanding dance performed the our Peakers.  Camp was divided into the Blue and White teams, and, after dinner, each team met to learn cheers, to hear about sportsmanship at the Point and even to get to know their team for the summer.  We were so excited about a great year of Team Competition.  

In the morning yesterday (Tuesday) we were treated to a “Sunday” schedule (Sunday this week was delayed to allow time for breakout).  After honoring many great campers, including our Campers of the Week we held the annual Scavenger Hunt all around camp.  The teams were both terrific, and we look forward to the leadership of the great Peak of 2019! (Many more photos are available when you log in.)

Today we welcomed the arrival of our Point O’Pines campers. Campers met new friends and reconnected with old friends too. The girls unpacked and toured camp and older campers nominated candidates to lead our team competition this summer. After our first dinner we enjoyed a Welcome Show by the staff introducing all our camp activities.

Tonight shared plenty of photos of the day when you log in on our site.

Peak of 2019 on the Ice of Brant Lake

The 2019 Peakers spent their weekend up at camp. Between enjoying fun out on the lake, a little lemon chicken, and exploring a white and frosty camp, the girls designed some great surprises and ideas to give the younger campers their best summer ever. We were so impressed not only with their ideas, but also the thoughtful way they wanted all of camp to enjoy the fun! Wow, everyone will be in for a great year at camp in just a few months.

Photos of the weekend retreat are posted in an album when you log in on our website.
