“My son returned overjoyed, matured and super confident with himself. He talks about all of it! He will recall something out-of-the-blue and share it with us with a smile. Thank you for that!!”

What Campers Are Saying

“It was an amazing experience. CIT made me want to be a counselor.”

“This upcoming summer, I will be a CIT, in the hopes of being a counselor in the future. I know how it feels to be accepted by people and how much of an impact all of the Pali counselors have made on my life. I would love to be that impact for all the other campers.”

“Pali has made me a better person. Thank you, Pali, for being such a big part of my life and taking me in every year and loving me for who I am. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to meet the most incredible human beings I’ve ever met. Thank you for the laughter, for the tears, for the memories, and joy. Thank you for existing. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for everything.”
