Special Events Week Two, 2019
Dear Park Shore Families and Campers,
Imagine the year is 1959! Bread costs a mere 20 cents a loaf, gas only 25 cents per gallon, and the average home value is $10,900. Al and Henny Budah open a new camp in the open fields of Dix Hills, called Park Shore, to entertain and excite kids during the summer. It is a simple time.
Fast forward 60 years to 2019… So much has changed. Dix Hills is a beautiful, busy suburban town with close-knit neighborhoods and growing families. Technology has improved and exploded. Throughout all this change, however, there has been one constant. From day one, Park Shore has been, and will continue to be, the number one camp on Long Island for entertainment and excitement! And the beauty of Park Shore is that it has embraced the newest and most cutting edge technologies, while maintaining that old-school, family owned, rugged camp atmosphere.
Summer 2019 officially began when the first bus pulled into camp with Patches, Buttons and the whole Special Events crew dancing and greeting all of our campers. The campers’ and staff’s contagious energy and enthusiasm was fantastic. Nothing was better than reuniting with our camp friends, after a long, cold winter! The ball fields were alive with smiles and teamwork. Groups even took “selfies” with a one-of-a-kind Park Shore frame! Pajama Day was a success as campers, counselors, and even directors got into the act wearing their favorite comfy PJs. A new tradition was born…Bear Chat; where campers are interviewed about all topics Park Shore!
You can find Bear Chat, Park Shore updates, photos, news, and more on our website parkshoredaycamp.com, as well as instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
