This week the Whiz Kids searched for fingerprints in their classroom using microscopes and baby powder. This is similar to how detectives work to find fingerprints at a crime scene! The campers found the experiment to be a challenge, but greatly enjoyed finding the fingerprints. It takes patience and concentration and the campers did a fantastic job.

Campers also participated in a session on constellations to discuss what they are, what they are called and where in the sky you can find them. Students made constellation scopes that projected a constellation on the wall with a flashlight. Each camper chose a constellation and drew it on a piece of black paper, then poked holes into the paper where the stars of the constellation would be location to allow light to shine through. The paper is then connected to the scope with a flashlight running through it. In the dark you can see small dots which form the camper’s chosen constellation. It was a simple project, but one that helped each camper understand the constellations and what they mean!

Art Explosion Week: Art Party July 17, 2014

Your campers have been busy! It is Art Explosion Week at Hi-Hills Day Camp and everyone is having a blast with all the fun activities this week offers.

Our Art Party was a new, two-day event that gave campers a chance to learn about court room art. We welcomed a special guest, Mr. Ted Michalowski, an artist who does federal court drawings. He is called in by news teams to sit in on federal court cases to visually document what is going on and the images are then used on television for news reports. Ted started the session by explaining to campers what his job is and why it is important before showcasing some of his artwork. The campers were intrigued and wanted to see him in action, so that is what they got!

Bunk counselors participated by putting on a mock trial. A crime was stated and roles were given out for each counselor to play. There was the case of the stolen saxophone as well as the Blue and Green team “unfair point trial.” As the counselors put on the skit, campers were given the job of acting as the jury and watched the scene unfold. Ted then went to the wall and drew the scene. He drew each counselor in-character as well as any special actions that were performed. He drew fast and large and the kids were so amazed with what he was producing. Ted explained to the campers that it was important to represent the characters as who they are, but also to capture a moment quickly. The campers were so excited and were amazed at what Ted could do.

The next day, the campers were given the chance to try court drawing themselves. Ted gave each camper a pen and watercolor and taught them what to look for when drawing another person. Ted commonly uses watercolor in his paintings because it is fast and gives him the ability to quickly add details and perspective to a standard line drawing. Every camper was very engaged in the activity and created beautiful art.

artweek3

Even our Kinder Campers joined in on the fun as Ted helped the young campers with their own drawing activities. They were all very engaged and happy that Ted showed them how to draw their friends!

Thank you to TT, the Activity Leader for Arts & Crafts, all counselors who participated and Ted Michalowski for teaching the campers about this unique form of art!

Archery at Hi-Hills July 10, 2014

Archery at Hi-Hills has been a great success thus far. All campers have learned proper shooting form, safety rules and techniques according to the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) model. Our campers are using state-of-the-art Genesis bows and learning Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) style without sights. The most important thing that we want campers to learn is how to arch correctly and accurately.

archery_1

As the weeks have passed, campers have improved on their shots and understand what they need to do to get the best one. Each age group shoots at different distances, but we are moving to a point where the kids are ready to move back and take more difficult shots. We have also been having some fun in our color team competitions by shooting for points. The specific game changes each week, with different tasks and targets. This week, the targets are zombies and a small plastic ball suspended on a fishing string.

archery_2

Some campers are very interested and excited about archery, so much so that they have participated in archery club. In club, campers get a chance to improve their technique and try more difficult shots that they would not get a chance to do in their bunks. Campers participating in club are becoming more accurate and confident shooters and are excited to participate every day.

archery_3

CITs are also learning the safety instructions of archery and how to manage and run an archery range. Each Counselor in Training was given the chance to manage the field, with safety as the number one priority.

Mad Science Week is Here! June 25, 2014

Hello campers and parents! It has been a fabulous start to Hi-Hills Day Camp this week. Our first theme is Mad Science Week and we are so excited for our dress up day on Friday as Robot Invasion! We cannot wait to see all of the creative costumes.

Campers are having fun in the sun while also learning some new, cool science facts. In music, campers are learning about traveling sound waves using a slinky, while in Arts & Crafts they are creating some chemical reactions with watercolor and salt. In Nature, campers are meeting all of camp’s creepy, crawly friends and learning a bunch of fun facts.

HI-HILLS CRITTER FACTS:
Have you ever heard of a milk snake? If you haven’t, you would think that its name is pretty funny. They got their name because everyone used to believe that snakes would come onto farms and suck the milk from the cows! This story was not true because the snakes were after the rodents, not the milk!

 

In addition to these fun activities, the Slippery, Slimy Science class is experimenting with all sorts of materials to create some fun projects. They are making Play-doh, glue, bouncy balls, tie-dye paper and more. Today is also the start of leagues and trivia which we are very excited to start.

Hi-Hills Day Camp 2013: A Retrospective August 14, 2013

The 2013 camp season combined the beloved traditions kids and parents have grown to expect from Hi-Hills with several exciting programs which will create new memories and traditions in the years to come. Over the course of these last eight weeks, campers have competed on the athletic fields and cooperated during technology education projects. They have showed off their talents in the performing arts while learning new skills on the tennis courts, in the pool and on the archery range. And that’s only the beginning–campers took advantage of the 79 acre GSB campus as they participated in a wide range of specialty and enrichment programs such as pottery, music, yoga, dance, nature, martial arts and more. With camp coming to a close, we’d like to take a look back at some of our favorite moments from throughout the summer.

The season began with two weeks of Summer Fun–a program which bridges the gap between the end of the GSB school year and the official start of Hi-Hills on June 24. Each week of camp began with a different theme–some of this year’s themes included Mad Science Week, Sportsmanship Week and Arts Explosion Week–and ended with a celebration of that theme during a dress-up contest and a bunk cheer competition during Council Ring, our special end-of-week closing ceremony.

Part of what makes Hi-Hills so unique is its flexible scheduling–campers can enroll in either a full-day traditional day camp program, or they can sign up for a half-day at camp while they explore some of the diverse enrichment programs we offer. This year, we offered programs in pony riding, mountain biking, sewing and lab science, as well as a wide range of academic enrichment programs. We also offered athletic skills camps for lacrosse, soccer and basketball.

There are always a few special events that campers and staff look forward to each year, such as the boys’ and girls’ campouts during week three, the sportsmanship games during week six and the annual camp play–this year a musical production of The Wizard of Oz–during week five. Throughout the summer, we invite family members and special friends to join the fun at Hi-Hills during the Parent Luncheon and the two Kinder Camp Garden Parties scheduled in both July and August. Two special events particularly stand out as highlights of the summer: the Lainie’s Angels campers-versus-counselors charity basketball game, and, of course, Carnival—an annual camp extravaganza complete with blow-up water slides, a face-painting booth, cotton candy, a pie-eating contest and even a dunk tank.

carnival_1

Each summer we try to build upon the previous year to deliver an even better camp experience. Some of our additions in 2013 include an aquatic rock climbing wall at the pool, a brand new low ropes course and, for parents, a revamped website, a robust Facebook page with daily posts and images and an updated format for our weekly camp newsletter, The Hi-Hills Herald. We also expanded our involvement in the Black Rocket program, which teaches kids technology skills while working with them to create their own video games and short films.

Camp director Cindy Wyatt hinted at big things to come for next summer. “It’s always so neat seeing campers year after year and how much they grow,” she said. “The excitement on their faces never changes. For our campers, being a part of Hi-Hills is like coming home every summer.”

Hi-Hills Lends Support to Families with Childhood Cancer August 7, 2013

This Thursday, Hi-Hills Day Camp will host its second annual campers versus staff charity basketball game. All proceeds will benefit Lainie’s Angels, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to providing counseling and support services to the families of children diagnosed with cancer and blood disorders.

Fifteen years ago Lainie Afendoulis, age 10, was diagnosed with cancer. Her family noticed that, although the hospital cared for Lainie’s medicinal and emotional needs, they themselves faced the daunting task of managing their daughter’s treatment within a hurried and, oftentimes, confusing hospital environment. While busy doctors and nurses focus their efforts and attention on patients, families often struggle trying to cope with their child’s cancer diagnosis alone. Inspired by his daughter’s fight against cancer Lainie’s father, Stathi Afendoulis, founded Lainie’s Angels in 2000, offering guidance to those families facing similar situations.

Donations to Lainie’s Angels are used to establish networks of Parent Advocates—volunteers, like Stathi, who have cared for a sick child in the past—who act as mentors, sharing their knowledge and experiences with others. Parent Advocates also facilitate peer-support groups, allowing families of sick children to meet and discuss their hardships with one another. Today, Lainie’s Angels has led to counseling programs in Chicago, Toronto and Manhattan. Read more about Lainie’s Angels and their “by parents, for parents” philosophy at lainiesangels.org.

cancer_angels_logo_resized

Please stop by the Athletic Center at 2:00 p.m. (after the Parent Luncheon) to check out DJ Nicole Spiotta and support a great cause while watching Hi-Hills’ counselors and staff face-off against campers on the basketball court. Entry to the gym is free, and a representative from Lainie’s Angels will also be in attendance, accepting donations and providing information to all parties interested in offering their support.

Sportsmanship Week at Hi-Hills July 31, 2013

Each week at Hi-Hills, we add a unique twist to our favorite activities with a different theme. Some of this summer’s themes have included: mad science, marine life, the arts and planet earth. The week six sportsmanship theme is a special one because it coincides with a camp-wide Leagues competition, always a favorite with our campers.

sports_week_1

The Leagues program organizes campers into eight different teams that compete for points in games like “kickball,” “tennis-baseball,” basketball and soccer. The playoffs begin next week, and trophies are at stake!

Here are this week’s Leagues standings:

Boys

Team Wins Losses Ties Points
Mighty Ducks 8 2 0 16
Pandas 6 7 0 12
Orangutans 4 6 0 8
Parnmesans 2 8 0 4

Girls

Team Wins Losses Ties Points
Jellybeans 10 0 0 20
Mummies 5 5 0 10
Elephants 4 4 1 9
Destroyers 0 9 1 1

During sportsmanship week, we expand our regular Leagues program with several special events. Instead of the usual Leagues teams, the whole camp splits up into Team Peapack and Team Gladstone. On Tuesday, campers competed in an athletics tournament involving a mash up of their favorite Leagues games. Today was the “Pasta Hunt,” a scavenger hunt that challenges campers to search for colored pasta shapes in order to score points. Also today, campers competed in a “penny-diving” competition at the pool.

sports_week_2

There are even more great events planned for the remainder of the week. Thursday is the Hi-Hills “Mini-Olympics.” Friday is the “Counselor Swim Relay Race,” where the counselors get a chance to show off their skills to the accompaniment of cheering campers. Some of the specialty counselors are also getting in on the fun–Stefanie is hosting a singing competition in music and Johnny is pitting Team Peapack and Team Gladstone against one another in a Pictionary showdown during arts and crafts. As always, campers will get the chance to show off their team banners and cheers at Friday’s Council Ring.

As an integral part of every event, points are awarded for good sportsmanship in order to encourage fair play and friendly competition.

Good luck to both our teams!

Week Six Enrichment Programs July 30, 2013

Each week at Hi-Hills Day Camp, we offer a flexible schedule of half-day and full-day enrichment programs in athletics, academics, performing arts and more. Week six boasts one of our most diverse schedules to date–in addition to Coach Mergin Sina’s Hoop Academy, campers can sign up for sewing class, an expository writing clinic, Singapore Math Review and a hands-on lab science program. Black Rocket, a favorite with our campers, is back this week with a class on Hollywood special effects.

Campers enrolled in “Gooey, Slippery, Slimy, Sticky Science,” led by GSB Lower School science instructor, Lynn Prosen, explore the fun side of science through hands-on experiments. Campers learn fundamental aspects of chemistry while creating slimes, foams, bubbles and other fun, sticky substances. Some of their experiments include making a fizzy volcano, fake snow and a Mentos geyser.

In Sewing Camp this week, campers are creating their very own pillows, skirts and bags–all from scratch. Along the way, they learn how to operate an electronic sewing machine, read a pattern and properly measure fabric–no more asking mom or dad to sew on buttons!

week6focus_1

GSB Middle School Language Arts teacher Zoe Tuohy is offering an expository writing class this week to refresh students’ essay and paragraph writing skills. Students enrolled in the program work on their individual needs with regards to the structure, mechanics and voice of their academic writing. Likewise, students enrolled in Singapore Math Review get a refresher on last year’s progress while previewing the main topics of the coming school year.

Hi-Hills Carnival 2013 July 25, 2013

The annual Hi-Hills Carnival is one of our favorite camp traditions–something our kids look forward to all summer. Campers showed off their carnival spirit yesterday by dressing up and competing in a costume contest. Superheroes, clowns, pirates, cheerleaders and even the Phantom of the Opera made an appearance at morning assembly; some of the bunk counselors and CITs also joined in on the fun.

When Carnival time finally came, the bunks rushed onto the athletic field, where the specialty counselors and CITs had prepared the first wave of activities. Some of the featured attractions at this year’s Carnival included: the “Wild Rapids” water slide, a pie-in-the-face booth, a dunk-tank run by the lifeguards, several skill games and a marriage booth, where campers exchanged pipe cleaner rings with their new “best friends for life.” Em hosted a Coke-Pepsi taste test, and Mr. Nature ran a duck-fishing game. The kids also enjoyed some freshly-made cotton candy.

carnival_1

Not to be outdone, each bunk sponsored its own booth during the afternoon session of Carnival, which took place after lunch. The boys set up a cow-milking station using rubber gloves, and they ran several sports-themed challenges, such as a football accuracy game and a water balloon toss. Bunk 17, The Chicken Fingers, held a pie eating contest. The girls painted nails, applied temporary tattoos, and ran a Frisbee toss and a water gun accuracy game. At each booth, campers earned tickets which they traded for some fun prizes. Stefanie, Johnny and Diana painted faces while Mindy and the CITs made delicious snow cones. Carnival ended with grand finale, as the campers unveiled some secret routines they’d been working on during dance classes during a flash mob dance party.

carnival_2

With Carnival over, and as the operations crew removed the last traces of broken water balloons and whipped pie filling from the athletic fields, one question alone turned over in the minds of Hi-Hills staff: “how long until next year?”

Art Education at Hi-Hills July 17, 2013

All around Hi-Hills, our campers have been singing, dancing, painting, sculpting, acting and, above all, celebrating their own creativity as part of our week four theme — the arts. Here at camp, we believe that art education is an essential part of any well-rounded academic experience, whether it is taking place in a traditional school setting or at summer camp. A 2002 study by the Arts Education Partnership has shown that students involved in arts programs perform better in reading, writing and mathematics courses than students without access to such programs. Likewise, the Center for Arts Education in New York has published a 2009 study which shows that schools offering programs in literary, visual, media and performing arts boast some of the city’s highest graduation rates.

Our pottery instructor, Brian Gary, studied painting and drawing in Amsterdam and New York City. According to Brian, it is important for students to be exposed to the arts early on in their education because it teaches them “self-expression and a lifelong sense of self-confidence and creativity.” Johnny Sansevere, an art educator during the school year and our arts and crafts instructor here at camp, adds that studying the arts “fosters solving problems in a creative way.”

arts_week_1

Diana Fiore, our dance instructor, reflecting on her own training in ballroom and tango dancing as a child in Colombia, stresses the connection between learning dance and being exposed to other cultures. “Dance,” she says, “was culturally embedded for me, and gave me the opportunity to socialize with other people.” Where language barriers build up walls between different cultures, Diana feels that music and dance are universally human and allow people from different backgrounds to find common ground. Beyond learning coordination and balance, Diana’s dance students learn how to collaborate and connect with other cultures.

arts_week_2b

For Stefanie Santoro, who studied flute performance as an undergraduate and is the camp music instructor, studying the arts is also a fun way to challenge students to step outside their comfort zones. This is especially important for students who are more introverted; participation in the performing arts can give them a platform for public self-expression that will build confidence that carries over into daily life.

arts_week_3

Stefanie and Johnny, along with some choreography help from Diana, are currently rehearsing with the kids for our camp musical, The Wizard of OZ. A more difficult production than last year’s High School Musical, this year’s musical involves campers from all bunks, including Kinder Camp. Opening night is slated for August 2, with more details to follow as we approach the big day.

Be sure to check out the Hi-Hills Herald, as well as our weekly photo galleries, for more information about the great arts programs we offer here at camp.

Pony Camp at Hi-Hills July 10, 2013

This week at Hi-Hills, campers and staff are celebrating our planet earth theme by learning more about the natural world. Keeping with this theme, we’re excited to offer pony riding lessons hosted by Morristown, New Jersey’s Ponyshare LLC. Since 1985, Ponyshare has offered mobile riding lessons for summer camps and after-school programs, as well as entertainment for birthday parties and other outdoor events.

Campers enrolled in the Pony Camp and Pony Share Petite enrichment programs, after learning essential safety techniques, are introduced to three ponies: George, Pepsi and Vanilla. The Ponyshare philosophy stresses the importance of earning the right to ride by understanding and appreciating the animals. Campers learn proper grooming techniques, including brushing a pony’s mane and cleaning its hooves. After, they are given a thorough explanation of horse tack, or equipment, such as the bit and the stirrups. Then, finally, they’re ready to get up in the saddle.

pony_pic_1

By the end of the week, campers, many of whom began the program with no experience in equine sports, will gain a mastery of basic riding technique. Our younger campers in the Pony Share Petite program (from three to five years old) will learn to make their ponies start and stop on command, and will be able to steer their ponies independently. Campers in the Pony Share program (ages nine through 13) will even learn to trot their ponies.

pony_pic_2

According to Ponyshare staff, the potential for constant achievement drives interest in equine sports; there are always more skills and techniques to master for riders at every skill level. And, unlike in other sports, riders have the unique opportunity to grow along with their animals as they advance their own skills.

Check out our website for more information about our unique enrichment programs.

Academic Enrichment Programs at Hi-Hills July 3, 2013

Summer is a time for fun and relaxation–a time for kids to recharge their batteries before they return to another year of academic rigor in preparation for high school or college. But many experts say that two or three months away from the classroom can actually undo some of the hard work that students and teachers put in during the school year. According to research from the National Summer Learning Association, 66 percent of teachers reported spending three or four weeks of the school year re-teaching the previous year’s curriculum; twenty-four percent of teachers even reported spending five to six weeks on old material. That’s why at Hi-Hills Summer Camp, we believe it’s important to mix summer fun with academic programs designed not only to keep students in a scholastic mindset, but to give them a head start on the upcoming school year. To that end, we offer several flexible enrichment programs in mathematics, computer skills and writing that allow campers to enjoy traditional camp activities while also devoting time to their studies. Campers can attend a half-day enrichment or academic program and then spend the rest of the day in the pool, on the athletic fields or in one of our other great programs.

In mathematics, we offer a six week geometry session taught by Gill St. Bernard’s Upper School instructor Ed Brown. Students enrolled in this course cover a full range of topics in Euclidean geometry and receive course credit and advancement to Algebra II upon successful completion of the program. We also offer a math clinic geared toward students in grades 6-12 that evaluates troublesome math concepts and works with students individually to reinforce the skills needed to succeed in the coming year. For students entering ninth grade, we offer a special math refresher designed to prepare incoming freshmen for the challenges of high school level geometry and algebra courses. Interested parents can also enroll their children in a fourth and fifth grade Singapore Math Review program later in the summer.

geometry

Strong computer skills are no longer optional for students in our tech-savvy world. We offer courses in keyboarding for students in grades 5-6, and also a course in Microsoft Office for students in grades 7-8. Eileen Procaccino, the data systems manager for the GSB I.T. Department, teaches both courses.

For students looking for a refresher in expository writing, Zoe Tuohy, who teaches middle school English at GSB, is giving a writing clinic for students in grades 5-8. Students enrolled in the course will improve the structure, mechanics and voice of their academic writing.

Full program descriptions and dates are available here on our website. Take advantage of our flexible half-day program schedule and sign up today.

Mad Science Week with Black Rocket June 26, 2013

It’s Mad Science week here at Hi-Hills, and we’re excited to offer a one week filmmaking course hosted by technology education pioneers, Black Rocket. The “Lightz! Camera! Action!” program guides students through the entire process of filmmaking, from creating a story and script, all the way to editing the final cut. By the end of the week, our campers will have worked together and created their very own short films. These will be available for download on Monday, June 1, on Black Rocket’s website, which parents will be able to access with a unique user ID and password supplied by Black Rocket.

The award winning Black Rocket program, which the New Jersey Small Business Development Council named small business of the year in 2011, is a technology-based education program that prepares students for global competition in an increasingly tech-focused economy. Encouraging cognitive reasoning and divergent thinking, Black Rocket introduces students to the latest technological innovations in order to foster tech skills in a fun and creative learning environment.

science_1

Our campers brainstormed ideas with Black Rocket staff before writing scripts for a short film in either the mystery or comedy genre. Some of their ideas included: a classic whodunit involving a stolen stuffed animal and the enigmatic Double Cape Bandit, a time-travelling adventure story, the invasion of camp by cookie-fearing aliens, and a surprise birthday party with a twist ending you’ll need to see to believe. Black Rocket staff were impressed by how well our campers collaborated on their creative stories!

Throughout the week, campers acted out their scripts, designed props and filmed scenes across our campus. They took turns as actors/actresses, directors and technical assistants. Black Rocket staff guided campers through the basics of the editing process, but ultimately the artistic direction of each film was left to the campers. We’re all looking forward to seeing the finished products!

science_2

Hi-Hills will be offering other great Black Rocket enrichment programs later this summer. In “App Attack,” offered from 8/19 to 8/23, campers will have the opportunity to create their own mobile application or video game and learn all about app publishing. Other programs include 3D and LEGO video game creation tutorials, as well as classes in stop motion animation and claymation. Check out our site for more scheduling information and sign up today!

Mountain Biking June 19, 2013

This week during Summer at GSB, our campers had the opportunity to participate in a week-long intensive mountain biking enrichment program led by Gill St. Bernard’s School photography instructor, Bob Ort. “Mountain Biking – Mind, Body, Spirit” offers a comprehensive introduction to the sport for those at the beginner to intermediate level. Campers learn the fundamentals of bicycle maintenance and repair, as well as the techniques needed to operate their bicycles safely and efficiently on a variety of different trail types. When he isn’t guiding campers through the physical challenges of mountain biking, Bob teaches healthy lifestyle skills using the Mind-Body-Spirit philosophy of the sport.

DSC_3615

Bob has been involved in cycling sports for fifteen years. He began cycling while competing in triathlons, but eventually segued into mountain biking and competitive road biking. He still regularly competes in cycling events several times annually, while also running a mountain biking club at GSB during the school year. Bob incorporates his photography background into the program by documenting the campers in action. According to Bob, these photographs are important not only because they preserve an exciting memory of the experience, but because they allow campers to share the moment and encourage others to get involved with the sport.

On Monday, after getting a quick orientation to the program, campers stopped by Marty’s Reliable Cycle in Hackettstown, New Jersey to pick up some necessary safety equipment for the week. Fully equipped, the group headed over to nearby Stephens State Park to get their first taste of real life mountain biking. The park offers 6 miles of marked trails, including a 2 mile section of the Highlands Trail which runs the length of the park. Campers enjoyed a fast and exciting run down “The Maze!”

On Tuesday, the group took a trip over to the Deer Park trails at Allamuchy Mountain State Park. Wednesday, they headed south to Monmouth County to test their skills on the sandy trails at Allaire State Park. Experiencing nature firsthand is an important goal of the program, and each day campers travel to new parks and trails across the state.

A typical day on the trails involves an hour and a half of biking in the morning, followed by a break for lunch and then another hour or two of trail work before packing up and heading home to campus. During lunch breaks, Bob steers his campers away from greasy fast foods and encourages them to fuel their bodies with nutrient rich food that will allow them to perform at their highest level, physically and mentally.

Mountain biking is more than just a fun and exciting experience. The sport encourages an appreciation for the outdoors beyond what you can see through the window of a car. It fosters an all-around healthy lifestyle by combining physical exertion, good food, and a positive mindset. Throw in some experiential education out in the elements, and you have the Mind-Body-Spirit philosophy that is so integral to the mountain biking experience.

Summer at GSB offers “Mountain Biking – Mind, Body, Spirit” again later in the summer from 7/08 to 7/12. We are also proud to offer Bob Ort’s digital photography classes (available for grades 6-8 and grades 9-12) from 6/24 to 6/28 and from 7/01 to 7/05. Take advantage of our flexible scheduling and unique enrichment programs and sign up today!
