July 4th is one of the best days at camp, so we woke up to pure excitement today! Our 10s came through each bunk decked out in red, white and blue and they paraded around camp with whistles and bullhorns in their decorated golf carts!
We walked into the dining room to find the entire place decorated with red, white and blue balloons and streamers. Even a few inflatable Uncle Sams joined the party! For breakfast, we had waffles with strawberries (red), whipped cream (white), and blueberries (blue) and fresh Krispy Kreme doughnuts – a true PFC tradition!
We did lunch the only way we know how to on the 4th: a cookout in the grove, complete with foot-long hot dogs!
This afternoon, we had an awesome carnival come to camp! It was complete with an inflatable obstacle course for the pool, massive inflatable waterslides and even a dunk tank! Campers loved dunking their counselors.
The highlight of the day takes place after dinner when we have our all-camp talent show at Netsy Playhouse followed by the best fireworks display in Pike County over Mitchell Field. We always hear from alumni that July 4th reminds them of their cherished time in Greeley. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
Happy birthday America!
