Hi Parents, Friends and Camp Family!
The first day of Camp 2014 is officially complete! All campers and staff arrived safely and have been having a great time settling into their cabins. We have a lot of fun things planned for this week and we hope you enjoy your glimpse into a week at Hye Camp.
The campers arrived this afternoon and were greeted by their counselors who had come up with creative cabin themes. After getting to know one another, everyone headed to the arbor for orientation. Director Mike Hollis introduced the campers to everyone on staff and we reviewed the rules of camp for the week. Some of the activities we can look forward to are campfires, sports tournaments, Talent Show, Blast from the Past Dance, and Arts & Crafts.
Tonight, everyone headed to the Mess Hall for the ice cream social where we made our own sundaes. Then we all made our way to the Lion’s Den for campfire. Each cabin performed a cabin cheer and a few of them participated in brownbag skits.
At 10:00pm the festivities ended and it was lights out for campers and staff. The sky is filled with stars and our hearts, excitement, as we rest up for first full day of Week 1, tomorrow. As most of you know, this year marks the 50th anniversary of Hye Camp. We are all excited to be here this week as we celebrate our past and make future memories.
To the next 50!
