In the 96th season’s first Tree Talk, Dick Beyer remarked that each summer campers and counsellors have stopped activities twice a week to spend a few minutes … listening to the thoughts and concerns of counsellors and camp directors. To those who have spent any amount of time at Pasquaney, Tree Talks and Chapel talks have become central parts of the camp experience.
