Since the 1970s, incoming freshmen have had the opportunity to make new friends, meet some of their teachers, and have a great week to start the summer at Molloy’s annual Freshman Camp. Freshman Camp welcomes Molloy’s newest Stanners to The Marist Brothers’ Center at Esopus, where a wide variety of fun activities helps build self-esteem and a sense of community before the start of the school year. Campers celebrate Mass together as they begin to discover the Marist charism, while field trips, swimming, tubing down the Esopus Creek, a dance party, games in the recreation hall, and Flag all round out the experience.
“The Br. Declan Murray Freshman Camp was, once again, a transformational week for campers, counselors, and organizers,” said Dr. Darius Penikas, Ed.D, Molloy’s Principal. “We are so grateful to all those who organized, worked, and participated in this unique Molloy experience. It truly sets the tone for a great four years.” (Photos by Mr. Jim Sheldon ’88)
The Beehive would also like to give a shout out to the many alumni who volunteered at Freshman Camp (see photo below, top left corner). Thank you for infusing the camp with your enthusiasm!
