                                           In 1965 Roger K. Kane Sr. purchased the 60 acre
                                           property to raise his family of 6 children on a farm
                                          setting. Upon introducing the family to farm life, Shirley Kane
                                          researched the historical farms listings where she discovered
                                        the property's Native American association. Once hunted and
                                      harvested by the Nipmuc tribe, Shirley and Roger chose
     "Pompositticut Farm" as its official name, deriving the title for the terrain once called
     the "badlands". The Kane family has been active members in the Mass. Farm Bureau
     and lifelong supporters of 4H and farm life, having raised polled Hereford cattle,
     Suffolk sheep, chickens and horses throughout the years. The farm has also been
     acknowledged as a Massachusetts Horse Farm of Distinction, hosting 36 camp owned
     horses. PFDC, Inc. is owned and directed by the youngest daughter, Jackie who began
     the camp while attending Concord Academy. PFDC, Inc. is Hudson's only ACA accredited
     camp and has been nationally recognized consecutively since 2000 for its child safety
     policies.

                                            Jacqueline Kane remains the director of PFDC
                                            since the camp's inception in 1980. A brother,
                                            sisters and Jackie completed the full 13 years
                                            of 4H programs. All participated on a national
                                            level with Jackie becoming the first 4H
                                            ambassador in the local program. Her personal
                                            interests and participation in equine pursuits
                                            throughout the years have influenced the camp's
                                            programming today. Offering daily riding lessons on the camp's
     grounds to each child, along with the innovative Heels Down equestrian program, has
     contributed to the camps' notoriety. Also, as one of the first local camps to offer a
     ropes challenge course, and the later addition of the Theater, Dance and Music activity,
     PFDC remains a word of mouth selection prized by local area parents. Jackie proudly
     oversees the more traditional activities of swimming, outdoor sports, creative arts,
     nature and archery that round out the camp's specialized programming.
