Welcome to Summer Camp
Little Pals Summer Camp is back this Summer and better than ever!!! Each year we strive to do our very best to make your child’s Summer experience wonderful, full of fun, laughter, play and learning. Our beautiful grounds encourage the love and appreciation of the great outdoors. Each week different themes offer our campers ample opportunity to imagine, move, play, laugh, create, perform and make friends while expanding their minds, their self-image and self-worth.
Adventurers - within our group of Adventurers will be a sub group of children who want to explore their inner talents and given the opportunity to express themselves through music, dance, magic and performance. Throughout camp the Adventurers will be encouraged to document their thoughts and experiences through the written word while expanding their vocabulary and language.
Our staff is a team of experienced and dedicated Counselors (LPP teachers, college students/future teachers and assistants) under the overall direction of Angela A. Nardo, MS-CCC-SLP. We are excited to announce that we have a new Camp Director Bari who will be bring all of her years of experience and fresh themes to our Program. Of course, Little Pals is and will always be a safe, loving and fun environment for your child with plenty of outside fun, exploration and activities; plus places to relax and enjoy the Summer weather. In addition, we want your child to have an opportunity to grow in their sense of who they are and give them a chance to shine. Your child will develop Summer Camp friendships and memories that will last a lifetime. Finally, Little Pals will follow all required safety protocols mandated to keep your child and all of our Counselors safe and healthy.
Bari Rosenholtz, Our Camp Director
I am excited to introduce myself to you as the new Camp Director for Little Pals Summer Camp! First and foremost, I am a mother of three daughters, ages 21, 15, and 12. Some of you may recognize me from my days as manager of The Elks Place, that fabulous indoor play space for kids and families that unfortunately closed! I have been a substitute teacher for the Monroe-Woodbury school district and in previous years, was a camp director for a weekly specialty camp in Rockland county. When my kids were younger, I spent many years as a preschool teacher as well! I loved those days in the classroom! I am super excited to bring all of my experience to Little Pals and work together with Angela, the counselors and staff to create an amazing summer experience for your children! There’s something really special about summer camp memories! I look forward to getting to know you all and becoming part of the LPP family! Summer fun is just around the corner!!!
