A New Camp Tradition! December 9, 2011
Hi-Hills’ new camp tradition, our CAMP REUNION.
Originally scheduled for October but due to the unseasonable snow the reunion was moved to December. This turned out to be a great way to kick start the holiday season. It was such a delight to see so many of our “summer” friends again. GSB’s Bruckner Hall was crammed with holiday craft activities and games, Mr. Nature brought along some of his animals, including Dalmatian the rabbit. Hi-Hills’ Athletic Duo John and Marc were on hand to lead camp games in the old Gym and we even had a 5 in one inflatable castle, outside. That’s correct, “outside” on December the 4th! We made snowflakes, had face painting, lucky dip and guess how much candy was in the candy cane. It’s tough to decide which of the games was more fun: “pin the Nose on Frosty” or “fill Frosty’s hat with snow balls”. I have uploaded a few picture highlights of the afternoon. Next year and weather permitting, we will revert back to our original theme, the Hi-Hills Halloween Party.
December is a busy month here at camp. We are planning for January 8th Open House and New Jersey Camp Fairs in Bridgewater and East Hanover. I want remind all parents that our “referral” offer is still available into 2012, so be sure to tell your friends and colleagues to stop by at one of our camp fairs and many summer camp Open House events, (1/8, 2/12, 3/4, 4/1, 6/3). I would be more than happy to lead a private tour also.
Camp Calendars and Teen Travel Update-
In early 2012 we will announce on our Day Calendar and Teen Travel Schedule with details of our overnight trip on hihills.com
Kids Zone –
A big announcement at the reunion was the unveiling of our new “kids zone” on hihills.com. This area of the website is packed with year round camp games, craft projects you can take on at home, competitions, Birthdays, a camp countdown (coming very soon) and more. The kids zone will be updated monthly with more fun than you can handle.
