This summer PPA offered its first sleep away camp at Camp Tall Timers, and by all accounts, it was a raging success! PPA Players Owen and Yoan talked to us about their experience with glowing reviews. Yoan - “Tubing was the best” Boots - “Nah man, soccer is my jam (he then proceeded to “dab” in Yoan’s face” PPA Campers would play soccer 4 hours a day before going on the other camp activities. “Tubing, Soccer….” “Archery, Rock Climbing….” “Oh and Zip Line!” “Yea the Zip Line was awesome” “Oh and they had a pool, and lake activities, like Kayaking and Canoeing”

At the end of the week PPA Campers participated in a Tournament. Coach Mark, Coach Mike, Coach Jamie, and Coach Annie each led their squad in a round-robin style competition to determine the camp champion. When the dust had settled, Coach Mark’s team stood head and shoulders above the rest.
Boots - “Yea but my team should have won. We finished 2nd.” Yoan - “OH! And the cabins were deeeec” Me - “Deeec?” Boots - “Yea they were nice, nice showers, and good food” Yoan - “Yea Pizza and Spaghetti dinner was the best. They had a salad bar too. And they would do music and cheers for announcements.” Me - “Do you remember any?” Boots and Yoan: “Announcements, announcements, annooouuuncements! A horrible way to die (clap clap) a horrible way to die! (clap clap)! A horrible way to start the day a horrible way to die! (repeat)
Me - "A horrible way to die?! What type of cheer is that? Boots - “It was more a cheer to see which side could cheer loudest” Yoan - “Oh yea that’s what it was” Boots - “I wanna go back, it was so much fun” Yoan - “Yea same. Next year I wanna win that tournament. And I miss the lake.”
A lake does sound like a nice way to beat the heat! PPA doesn't have any sleep away camps left this summer, but there are a couple weeks of soccer, basketball, and tots camps left for those looking to make the most of the rest of the summer months!
