Pine Island’s 120th season was another great one! Our campers earned ranks in their favorite activities; paddled and hiked throughout the remote north woods of New England; produced and acted in riveting Saturday Night Shows; and most importantly, created a community in which each boy’s participation and energy was needed and valued. It was not without challenges, but our unflappable community met each one with grace and good cheer.
For a glimpse into the creative, imaginative, and active lives campers led at Pine Island this summer, we invite you to read the 2022 Mid-Summer Pine Needle, a publication of camper articles, poetry, and artwork. This is the result of a special journalism session that several campers participated in this summer. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
We’ve also compiled some of our favorite photos from the trail and around camp into our 2022 At-a-Glance gallery. Special thanks to the staff, campers, and parents who contributed to this album, including Kiran Dhawan, who took this incredible drone shot, and Kate Skogen, who volunteered her photography skills at the Farewell Ceremony.
It was an incredible summer and we’re grateful to our campers for stepping out of their comfort zones to grow, learn, and challenge themselves; to our staff for their creativity, patience, and care; to our volunteers for their valuable time and skills; and to our camp parents for their trust in us. Our season depended on every one of you, and every one of you came through to make it another great summer.
