To the many families who came out, thanks for dropping by to learn more about us! I hope we were worth the trip! Diane told me we'll be seeing quite a few of you again in a couple months...we can't wait! For those of you who couldn't make it, we'll be hosting 3 more Open Houses: April 19, May 17 and June 14, from 10am - 2pm.

Folks, I gotta say -
This is my third summer at Peconic Dunes and without equivocation it's shaping up to be the best one yet. We have a lot of campers and staff coming back for their 2nd, 3rd, 4th...up to 9th summers!...(I'm not sure if Jimmy or Ranger Roger has been around longer...Roger if you count back to when he was a gotta ask him to tell you his stories). The new staff are also an amazingly talented bunch and I hope to get everyone's bio up on the blog soon!

The people have always been a main reason campers and staff come back to the Dunes year after year. This year our program options are pretty sick too (sic). We've got Rookie Camp again, ECO is available all 8 weeks, we're going somewhere every Extender Weekend, and 7:00am Polar Bear swims in the Sound are back on!

Sunrise and sunsets on the Sound, Lakota Friendship Circles, brother & sister cabins, Roundup!, Dance!, getting mail, compost, Campfire, Buddy, "sign my t-shirt?", grace, chores, friends, our summer family...that is Peconic Dunes Camp.

What!?! You haven't registered yet!?!
Well...that's easy...all you have to do is click where it says...
