At the Water's Edge Summer CampsWater’s Edge is an imaginative play program based in nature. Students walk the half-mile path from the PMAL Center to the shore of Woods Pond where they spend four hours creating their own village in the forest. The students have created their own forts, businesses, currency, government, pets, and rituals while being guided by the staff of PMAL. Not only do the children play in the forest, they also swim, kayak, and canoe in Woods Pond under the watchful eyes and thoughtful instruction of a certified lifeguard and a Wilderness First Aid certified counselor. Come join us for our fifth summer of laughter, exploration, and fun!At the Water’s Edge
