Pingry's Big Blue Summer
Photos from the Week
Pingry Big Blue Summer campers and staff live by the Honor C.O.D.E. As they encounter new activities and challenges, campers are encouraged to be Curious, Open, Dedicated and Enthusiastic while remaining true to Pingry's greatest value, Honor.
Honor at camp is defined as respecting others, the environment, and one's self. Throughout their day, Pingry counselors and staff encourage campers to develop their self-confidence, collaborative and problem-solving skills by asking questions, considering many views, and working toward goals with a positive attitude!
A brand new addition to the camp this year! The archery station is nestled in a shaded area of our campus. Specialists instruct the campers to properly shoot bow and arrows while encouraging the campers to improve their skills each session! A new camp favorite.
Big Blue Summer Safari Week
Animal scavenger hunts, nature studies, and garden time are just some of the activities. The culmination of Safari week was a special presentation by Rizzo’s Reptiles. The campers had the opportunity to see and touch reptiles such as: turtles, baby alligators, scorpions, snakes and chinchillas.
Ninja Warrior Course
The Ninja Warrior course includes a balance beam, mini rock walls, leapfrog platforms, and over under nets. The course requires teamwork from all of the campers which helps to make it fun and productive. Each week we will bring out our inner ninjas, improving our skills as the course changes and new challenges are added.
