Lost + Found

Dear Pembroke families, Water bottles, towels, a left croc, goggles, bathing suit tops, a raincoat or two, jibitz, sunglasses…all of these things are currently waiting to be reclaimed by their rightful/forgetful owner.

Camp Tevya 2022 Week 5 Update

Coming Home

July 2022 There is comfort in coming home. A familiarity and a calm that comes over us as we recognize and reacquaint ourselves in a space like camp. The smell of the lake brings back memories of kayaking to “the island”, the taste of your first s’more of the season feels like a warm hug, […]

Camp Tevya 2022 Week 1 Update

Dear Tevya families, At the start of orientation, I told our counselors a story about the ripple effect of leadership. As counselors responsible for the well-being of other people’s children, every word, every action, every expression, and every sacrifice, causes a ripple. Not just for our campers and ourselves here at camp, but for our […]
