A Riverbend family wedding!
On April 5, we celebrated the wedding of Evan Cheng (Jill’s son, former camper and counselor) to Sarah Sharkey. We are so happy as our family grows!
1 box of refrigerated pie crusts, softened
2 cups diced, peeled apples
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tbsp flour
1 ½ tsp cinnamon
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Unroll pie crusts on a work surface and cut each crust into quarters. You will have 8 wedged shaped pieces of dough.
Mix apples, sugar, flour and cinnamon. Put a bit of this mixture on top of a piece of dough, then fold the dough over the filling. With a fork, crimp the edges to seal. The filling should completely covered by dough. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Cut several small slits in top to allow steam to escape while baking.
Bake 15-20 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool until the pocket can be safely picked up. Enjoy warm or at room temperature. Makes 8
For a special touch, brush the top of the pockets with water and then sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar before baking.
Want to get adventurous? Try making the filling with a mixture of apples and pears… add raisins or dried cranberries…. add nutmeg!

Camp Riverbend for the summer of 2013!
Legoland on the Passaic: Camp Riverbend is creating our very own LegoLand for this summer. We have buckets and tubs of Legos and Mega Bloks, which will stay in the Legoland cabin. It’s a great place for groups to go for a PIY or for our amazing Lego clubs to meet!
The Cookout Pavilion: Replacing a bubble tent, our Cookout Pavilion is currently under construction this month near karate and the high ropes course. It gives us much more room for cookouts, and another comfortable and roomy indoor space for rainy days!
3rd Grade Late Nite: More fun for campers as they grow up at Riverbend. Once during the summer, rising 3rd graders will stay late at camp for an afternoon of extra swimming and games, followed by dinner and a campfire with s'mores, songs and a fun campfire story to top off the evening. Parent pick-up at 7 pm.
