Dear PAL Families,
Spring has arrived!!! That means we are getting ready for PAL Camp 2019. This year we will be celebrating our 35th year providing Armada youth with one of their best weeks of the summer. PAL Camp dates are Sunday, August 4th until Saturday, August 10th. Registration will be held on Wednesday, April 17th, 6:30 p.m. at Armada Middle School for all current grades 5th thru 8th.
To avoid those long lines, Early Mail-in Registration is once again available for current grades 5-7. Because of limited spots, those campers registering for the 8th Grade High Adventure Program, must register in person. All necessary forms will be available on our website beginning April 5th.
The window for Early Mail-in Registration is April 8th - 13th. All forms must be postmarked by April 13th. Registration forms received after the deadline will be held until in person registration has closed and will be added in pending available space.
The cost for camp is $325. There is a $50 nonrefundable deposit required at registration. The balance is due on or before orientation, which is May 21st. This year we also have a credit card option. Unfortunately, it comes with a cost. There is a surcharge of 3.5% + $0.15 that will be passed along to you. To keep the cost down, stick with cash or a check. If you choose the credit card option, I recommend paying in full. Otherwise, you will pay the surcharge twice. The surcharge for paying in full equals $11.53.
I will send you a follow up email with additional information the first week of April. Know that after registration, this email group will be closed. So, if you no longer have a PAL Camper, you will no longer receive my emails after registration. If you have not been receiving our parent emails and would like to, please comment below oe reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information, please continue our website and follow us on Facebook for the latest updates.
I hope everyone has a great spring break.
Assistant Camp Director
In collaboration with Center Lake Bible Camp and Retreat Center, Armada PAL Camp is helping support the build of a lodge to support our program and we are dedicating to past PAL volunteer, 8th Grade counselor, and family member, Cody Pagan.
Standing on the previously tented 8th Grade campgrounds, The Cody Lodge is a three-season housing unit and is approximately 112'x18'. It has four camper cabins, a staff cabin, 24 permanent wooden frame bunk beds with a total capacity of 52 people. It also has a covered porch running the length of the lodge that provides campers a protected place to gather.
Armada PAL is so thankful and excited for this new building in collaboration with Center Lake Bible Camp. We know our campers will love it, and there will be countless memories and friendships formed in it this summer.
