PALS is all about lifelong friendships, and Alex and Joe are amazing examples of it! Meet Alex Hudson, and his roommate Joe Collins. When PALS was one Camp in the Philadelphia area, Alex would travel from Maryland and Joe would travel from Massachusetts to participate in the week-long adventure. The pair have attended many camps, including Philadelphia, Georgetown and Maryland.
