Dear PALS families and friends,
Our Monterey Bay Adventure came and went way too quickly; time really does fly when you’re having fun. We spent our unforgettable weekend in sunny California with 38 amazing Campers and Counselors! Throughout the weekend we had perfect weather. Thankfully our PALS were there to bring out the sunshine.
We kicked our weekend off with karaoke, a PALS favorite! It was a perfect way to get everyone to break out of their (crab) shells and get excited for the weekend ahead. Saturday was a fun-filled day, starting off at our favorite spot in Monterey, the aquarium! Campers and Counselors enjoyed the interactive learning experience at one of the best aquariums in the country. We saw the camouflage octopus best known in Finding Dory, visited the deep blue sea tank and feeding show, and hung with some amazing animals like the sea otters and penguins. From there we headed over to the black light mini golf and mirror maze, a new addition to the Adventure and quite a hit! We then spent the evening getting fancy for our big night out. Everyone looked so fin-tastic! We finished the night with a Mexican feast and view overlooking the Monterey Bay.
Sunday was another perfect day as we hit the beach to take in the sunshine, play some games, and dig our toes in the sand. It was nothing but laughs and smiles all around! We finished off our weekend with bowling and pizza, making the most of our time together.
We want to thank everyone who was a part of this Adventure. We loved getting to watch our PALS family grow as our new members soaked up the PALS magic for the first time and our returners got to enjoy their favorite time of year!
