Welcome to the Club!

After an incredibly close Color Days, we’re back to PFC united as one! We had a much needed late sleep and bunk Chestnut had “Breakfast with Borowsky,” something they won on Visiting Day for having the cleanest bunk. They enjoyed baked goods and egg and cheese sandwiches on toasted bagels in boys office which sounds like the perfect post-Color Days meal to us! The whole camp had an open choice period and a day full of league playoffs.

After lunch, we had our annual Old Timers Club (OTC) party! Any camper or counselor who has attended PFC for three years or more is officially a member. We celebrate with a cheerfest and ice cream party and today’s party was a blast! At the end, everyone received the much anticipated Old Timers gift which was a PFC mason jar cup. Cool!

A big highlight for tonight is the all girls dance party. The theme is “twinning” and they are twinning with their big/little sisters. We can’t wait to see their looks!

Hometown: Chicago, IL

When I’m not at camp, I’m: A Teacher and Sales Associate for Burton Snowboards

Years at camp: This will be my 10th summer!!! Can’t believe I’ll be going on the tree this year!

Favorite camp meal: Tacos. I can’t get enough. My record is 5 in one lunch! Burp.

Favorite camp tradition: Anything to do with 4th of July. It used to be the only day I would get homesick at camp. Now, 10 years later, I couldn’t imagine spending it anywhere else. The talent show is a highlight of my summer every year. You all rock for getting up there!

Favorite camp song: “I’ve got a pair of combination underwear…”

Favorite evening activity: Capture the Flag or Beach Ball Bonanza

Best part about being a camper: I was never a camper at PFC but I did go to camp when I was a kid. My favorite part of camp was the lake! I couldn’t get enough of it. I spent all day, every day there. Is that a big surprise to you? :)

Favorite part of current role: This is my first year in this role at camp but so far I have been loving it! Having the opportunity to work on projects and continually plan for camp all year long is a dream come true. This summer is going to be AMAZING! Andy and I have some exciting things up our sleeves… Also, a key to the ice cream barn will be a GREAT perk! Shhhh… I’ll share!

Favorite Camp Memory: There have been so many …but hitting a home run over the fence in the Boys’ Camp Home Run Derby contest is an absolute highlight. #hitlikeagirl

What I’m looking most forward to in 2015: Every year, the best part of my summer is spending it with you and making the most of every moment at camp. Also, my sneaker game is going to be on point this summer. I’ve got some funky new kicks I can’t wait to break in! Describe PFC in 3 words: Bliss, Happiness, Home.

Fun fact about myself: I am fluent in American Sign Language and all of the students I teach are Deaf.
