Open Houses

Join Us!

During the off-season, Open Houses serve as a wonderful opportunity for Pemi families, friends, and alumni to meet newly-enrolled campers and their parents, to introduce Pemi to those who are “just looking,” and to re-establish close ties among old friends.

Open Houses are typically 1.5 to 2 hours (or more, for those who linger over snacks and conversation!). Parties start by gathering to watch Pemi’s DVD, which directors Danny Kerr & Kenny Moore narrate “live.” The Q and A time that follows allows new families to learn more from us and, perhaps more importantly, to hear directly from parents and campers who walked in their shoes not long before, as well as from alumni who often speak to the enduring impact of the Pemi experience.

Please mark your calendars and RSVP so we can provide our hosts with an accurate head count. We thank the hosts for their generosity!

RSVP to Danny. Please include names of those attending and ages of children.

Satellite Open House Program

Pemi is a “word-of-mouth” camp and has been for over 100 years. Would you like to serve as a Pemi ambassador by hosting a gathering without a Pemi director present? Choose a date that suits you, invite some local families, friends, and colleagues with boys ages 6-14 to your house for a casual get-together, and we’ll be happy to supply you with a narrated DVD, some catalogs, and other items to support you as you spread the word. Please email Danny if you’d like to discuss the possibility.
