We had a great reunion back at camp in the summer of 2014. Go to www.camppowhatan.com to read about it. Reunion was June 26th - June 29th, 2014.

On May 6, 2006, a gala event occurred in New York City honoring Joel Boom and his contributions to so many campers lives. The event was a great success with approximately 150 people attending. All money raised from the event, after expenses, were applied to the Dr. Joel W. Bloom Campership Fund at Seeds of Peace International Camp. The event raised over $100,000 for the Campership Fund!

The Powhatan Facebook Group was started in June 2009 and has become more active than this Yahoo Group. You can find a link to that group at the top under More and then Links.

Dr. Joel W. Bloom passed away at 8:20 AM on July 6, 2009 at age 93 (1916-2009). In Joel's honor, donations can continue to be made to the Joel Bloom Campership fund at Seeds of Peace International Camp (http://www.seedsofpeace.org/?page_id=18539). Memorial gifts will enable disadvantaged American teenagers to continue to come to camp on the shores of Pleasant Lake, to a place deeply rooted in the belief that children of all backgrounds can develop into tomorrow’s leaders.
