Adventure Recap: Hersheypark


Dear PALS families and friends,

This past weekend was nothing short of an absolute treat! As Adventure Leaders, it was the most rewarding feeling to see our planning come to life and we truly could not have asked for a better experience. First and foremost, the two of us want to thank all the incredible Counselors, Campers, families, and PALS staff members for making this weekend spectacular. There wouldn’t be a PALS Hershey Park Adventure without all of your support!

As for our activities, our exciting chocolate-filled weekend began with some fine dining and karaoke at the Hershey Country Club! As usual, Campers wowed the crowd with their singing talents and awesome dance moves. We eased into Saturday morning with a relaxing paint session led by a local art institution. By the time we left the paint studio, every Camper had a beautiful painting and a memory to take home. The main attraction on Saturday was Hersheypark! Campers and Counselors spent the day catching roller coaster thrills, enjoying the Christmas attractions, and playing carnival games! After a full day of activities, we headed back to the cabins for a Chipotle catered dinner. To end our day, we warmed up by the campfire with some delicious s’mores and campfire sing-alongs. As we belted out the lyrics to our favorite songs and bit into our gooey s’mores, you could really feel the PALS magic in the air. Our weekend culminated with a fun-filled trip to Chocolate World! At Chocolate World we made our own chocolate bars, solved a 4-D mystery, received a tour of the site, and of course ate a ton of chocolate! 

Before we knew it, it was time to say goodbye to all our friends. It was definitely tough to leave, but this weekend also provided us with so many memories to keep us smiling! The Hersheypark Adventure was a great way to kick off the Adventure season. We sincerely hope we will be able to reconnect with all of our Hersheypark friends at other Adventures and Camp PALS. Thanks again to everyone who made this weekend so special!

PALS love,

Panini and Morgan
