taste of camp
Not every camper or family is ready for the 7, 4, or 3 week session. Pinemere provides 3 awesome opportunities for you to get a taste of camp:

Family Camp: October 5-7, 2018

Family Camp provides each child and adult the opportunity to experience the Pinemere spirit! This is a great opportunity for potential campers, alumni, parents, and for current campers that just can’t get enough of Pinemere! Families stay in regular camp bunks and can choose from a variety of activities throughout the day. Programming is both for families and separately for campers and adults. Join us for an amazing weekend in the Poconos full of art, lake games, relaxation, sports, campfires, songs, and epic programs like Family Lip Sync. We hope to see you this fall! Please contact mitch@pinemere.com for any questions. RSVP HERE

Pioneers: July 23 – August 3, 2018

Pioneers is a 12-day introductory program for new campers entering grades 2nd – 6th. Campers can participate in Pioneers for one summer before moving on and joining either a 3, 4, or 7 week session. Pioneer campers begin on day 1 of 2nd Session and are fully integrated into the camp schedule. They live in the same bunks as other campers their age, and are treated as full Pinemere campers.

SPARK: July 13 – 15, 2018

SPARK is a 3-day weekend for first-time campers entering grades 1st-3rd to try overnight camp as a way to “spark” their interest in camp. Participants live in their own air-conditioned building for the weekend, and have their own staff exclusively for SPARK campers. They join in all of the all-camp activities that take place, such as Shabbat services, meals, our famous Folk Sing, and Saturday night’s evening activity. Other parts of the day are spent doing activities either just with their program, or together with the younger campers that are there for the whole session. During SPARK we try to squeeze as much of camp as possible into this 3-day program! If you are interested in any of these programs, please Contact Us!
