Hi-Hills Day Camp Halloween Party October 5, 2011
Many people assume the camp office is extremely quiet in October and there is little to do until next June. I am often asked the question, ‘what is it you do the rest of the year?’ I usually laugh and say, ‘well, I take a 10 month vacation’.
Truth of the matter is, although I live 10 months of the year for 2 months of summer, we are incredibly busy (good busy) and it feels like June here in the camp office, (June is probably the busiest month in the camp calendar).
We have many exciting things happening and I wanted share with you some of the projects we are working on.
We are currently planning the FIRST EVER Hi-Hills reunion, we are evaluating the summer of 2011, reading through all your camp feedback and planning the program for 2012. We are asking ourselves all sorts of questions, like, how can we make Carnival be EVEN better next year? Which Teen Travel trips should we consider? Can Sno Cones be EVERY DAY? Along with this, we spend time meeting with new parents and giving camp tours and we are beginning to meet with staff to coordinate who is able to return to camp next summer.
Away From Hi-Hills Day Camp,
My Mum (as we say in the UK, not Mom) visited from England. She had never been to the USA before and we had a great time. We spent most of our time in NY, NY sightseeing and doing all kinds of fun stuff that you forget to do when you live so close to the city. We went to the top of the Empire State building, we took a cruise around Manhattan Island and visited the Statue or Liberty, we walked through times square at night, had lunch in Central Park and she even wanted to take a ride in a yellow Taxi. I was also able to share all my stories from the summer with her and she wishes she could be at the reunion.
The Hi-Hills Day Camp Reunion
Speaking of which, each of you should receive an invitation for our Hi-Hills Halloween Party in the mail shortly. The Hi-Hills Day Camp reunion is on October 30th between 2-4pm at Gill St Bernard’s. There will be prizes for the best Halloween Costume. Please RSVP to the camp office before October 20th
The Hi-Hills Herald
I am in the process of editing the Fall edition of the Hi-Hills Herald. If anyone would like to share a story from summer or update the camp community on what you have been doing since camp, we would love to hear from you. Please email your article to firstname.lastname@example.org
In the meantime I hope you are enjoying the beautiful month of October and I hope to see you at the Reunion.
All the best,
