Summer Camp 2015

All aboard! Campers between the ages of 6 and 11 arrived the week of August 10th for our annual inter-generational summer camp program. The “Pirates and Pixies” theme, prominent in the numerous activities throughout the week, was a tribute to this year’s celebration of “125 Treasured Years” since our Home was incorporated and our charter granted.

The program helps bridge the gap between our wisest and newest generations to dispel age-related myths and stereotypes through meaningful and interactive experiences.

The campers and residents took part in everything from arts and crafts, swimming, bowling, to a treasure hunt and even a trip to Pirate Voyage in Ocean City, New Jersey.

Thank you to our residents, campers, recreation therapy and activities departments for making this year’s camp another success!

We hope these days will become a treasured memory for all involved.


What Residents Say

"In my nine years at PPH, I’ve grown to like it very much. At first, I felt like a stranger and then as I began to talk to people, we increasingly became good friends. A way to meet people is to join clubs. I’m now part of the PPH Auxiliary. I love helping with their flea markets because you never know what you can find. Recently, I’ve joined an evening quilting class. I love that I can continue to enjoy my life outside of PPH while experiencing the offers here.…especially the pool! Everything is just so convenient.

– Lucille Hite, Independent Living resident

What Families Say

"My mom is sooo happy at PPH, I can’t even describe it in strong enough words. She’s met so many new friends and these ladies do EVERYTHING together! She sees Dad every day in Pathways, but can have her life too. She’s gone to so many activities and I think I’ve already been to Scoops with her at least 15 times. She loves the dining room and Bistro too. My sister, Ilene, and I are so delighted that Mom is happy.......Wow, it feels like Mom’s been there about 2 years—but it’s only 2 months!! That’s how comfortable and natural it feels for her – and for all of us.

– Rhonda Frenkel, daughter of resident Bernice Segal
