On Saturday, July 29, during Friends & Family Weekend, Camp Pecometh celebrated 70 years of life-changing experiences. So many lives have been radically changed for Christ over that time, whether it was at an impacting Galilean service or just through one-on-one heartfelt conversation.Read More
Arts & Crafts is always an integral part of any great camp program, and at Pecometh, this has certainly been the case since 1946. However, the Arts & Crafts Cabin near the pier was run-down and needed a facelift… and a move.Read More
Deciding to work at camp was a very difficult decision. I applied for the job not really knowing what to think. Then an interview day was set up. I was really hesitant to go, and I didn’t decide if I was going until the night before.
There are plenty of mosquitoes and no air-conditioning. I'm feeling a little bit homesick for my mom's cooking, but I'm surrounded by a warm, fun-loving group of co-workers who have made me feel like part of the family from Day One.
Have you ever noticed that even those of us who love camp have a difficult time helping people understand
I started going to Camp Pecometh when I was 12 years old on Horseback. Other than family vacations and single-night stays at Grandmom’s house, Pecometh was my first major time-away-from-home. I don’t remember worrying about making friends or missing home.
It's October, so by now our 2013 summer staff have (we hope) successfully transitioned back into the world ourside camp. To stave off the "October Blues," here are a few lessons you've hopefully learned about transitioning from Camp to "The Other Nine Months" of the year. Have you had these experiences? What did I leave out?
Everyone has their Dining Hall favorites. For some it’s chicken nuggets and tater tots. For others its those amazing triple chocolate cookies, or Taco Salad Tuesday. Long-time Pecometh Campers will know that Jello Cake is a 4th of July tradition at Camp.
Pecometh. We all have things that we remember about coming here as campers, or working here as staffers. The songs in the dining hall, canoeing on the river, and of course Gallilean Service. Family camp offered three days of jam packed fun to relive all of these things.
I spent three of the greatest summers of my life working at Pecometh. Now that I have a daughter, I’ve been waiting for the chance for her to experience the joy that I always felt. Family camp was the perfect experience for that.
My relationship with Pecometh started as a five year old mini camper. I continued to go for a week every summer until I turned sixteen, and then spent three memorable summers on staff (2003-2005). Pecometh helped nurture my faith journey along the way. I remember many times basking in nature, sitting on the pier, in the outdoor chapel, or in a quiet cabin journaling, praying, learning to love God more. It is a place I learned about community. To this day my very best friend is someone I met working on summer staff. God continually uses her to speak truth into my life.
