Pemi’s program is unique among summer camps for its depth and breadth, with instruction from beginner to advanced levels in all activities. With the help of your counselor, you’ll choose your own set of instructional activities for your 1st, 2nd, 3rd (and for many, 4th) hours of the day that you’ll stay with for the week and that plug into the daily, camp-wide schedule. The best way to illustrate our diverse program is to introduce you to real campers and the instructional activities that each one chose. We’ll update with a new slate of campers on occasion, so be sure to check back!

Beyond instructional activities, you can fill your free time in many ways, like playing ping-pong with friends, having team practices and games against other camps, going on field trips, or visiting “Art World,” the Nature Lodge, or the Woodshop. Join in group activities or enjoy some solo time with a favorite book.
Three evenings a week, the entire camp family gathers for Saturday night campfire, Sunday meeting, and Monday’s Bean Soup — Pemi traditions that date back over 100 years!
Wondering what “inspection” is? Here’s a description, written by a Pemi alum years ago!
