PALS Princeton - Olympics and Semi-Formal!
PALS wrapped up a great week with the two most anticipated activities on Friday: Olympics and the Semi-Formal. Olympic teams were comprised of campers, counselors, and special guests from Princeton Disabilities Awareness (PDA). After Olympics, campers headed back to campus for the Congratulations Project. Once campers finished writing their letters, they prepared for the semi-formal.
The semi-formal was held on an outdoor patio with decorations, under awnings and colored lighting. PALS danced the night away as the sun set — a truly wonderful way to end the week.
PALS Princeton - Casino Royale!
PALS kicked off Thursday morning with a healthy eating seminar, followed by a Top Chef competition using healthy ingredients. After lunch, campers chose among three activities for the afternoon: 1) volleyball; 2) the art museum; and 3) canoeing. Campers and counselors also spent time before dinner at the pool.
After dinner, PALS hosted casino night with the help of Archetype Consulting. PALS were treated to a night of games and drinks, with the winner of the casino games receiving the first ever PALS Princeton Casino Night trophy.
