Change of plans for Campfire in NYC

Pine Islanders don’t like to change their plans because of the weather, but they also are trained not to go up the mountain or out on the lake if it would be foolish to do so.  I am writing to let you know that, in view of the weather forecast, we are scaling back our plans for Campfire in NYC.

We WILL be at the DUMBO Loft at 6:00 pm on Saturday, January 23 and look forward to spending the evening with whoever chooses to venture out and join us there. The menu and the program will be scaled back, but we promise that we will offer at a minimum awesome Brooklyn pizza, drinks, the chance to hang out with us and other Pine Islanders, and whatever entertainment we can cook up.

Maybe we’ll see you there!

Time for Campfire…in New York City

Pine Island Camp’s 7th Annual Campfire in New York City is this Saturday, January 23rd!  If you want to join us and you haven’t registered yet, please reserve your spot today.

This event will be held at the DUMBO Loft on Water Street in Brooklyn.  The evening will include a simple buffet dinner along with traditional campfire skits and songs.  Campers and alumni will entertain us with the same musical, theatrical, and creative improv skills that we’re treated to nightly all summer long at Pine Island Camp.  We hope you can join us!

Tickets are $50 for adults and $25 for children and students.  You can pay with a credit card after you reserve your spot (we’ll send you a bill), or with cash at the door.
