Another unforgettable summer has come to an end at Camp Nubar, but the festivities are just beginning for camp’s milestone 50th anniversary.
This year, Camp Nubar welcomed over 240 campers – one of the highest number of enrollees in years – from Armenia, Canada, France, Germany and Turkey, plus 14 US states. As in years past, campers spent their days engaging in arts and crafts, fishing, hiking, horseback riding and music, as well as swimming in the private lake. They also enjoyed some new activities, including a basketball class and a hockey league that helped young athletes enhance their game.
Though campers were sad to board the buses home, they can look forward to a year full of celebrations to honor Camp Nubar’s 50th birthday. The new anniversary website has details on upcoming events, including the anniversary celebration, which will take place on Friday, July 26, 2013, in New York City. Tickets are currently on sale – book now to take advantage of a special pre-sale price.
