Welcome to Hi-Hills Day Camp…
At this time of year, it can feel like camp is decades away. The Hi-Hills website is one way to keep the camp spirit alive year round! Our Interactive Kids Zone is dedicated to fun, games and contests. We’ll update this page throughout the winter and spring with new activities, so be sure to check back often!
When you are stuck inside there are still fun things to do. Consider trying out the following fun indoor games.
- Air Pong: A ping pong ball and table is all that is needed for this fun quick indoor game. Two players are on either side of the table with the ball in the middle of the table. Take a piece of tape to clarify where each side of the table starts. Each person tries to blow the ball off of the other side of the table. First one that does wins!
- Sock Puppets: Find a sock, glue, some googly eyes, and felt to cut out a tongue shape (felt works for eyes, too). Attach the eyes and tongue to the sock with glue. Name your puppet, and put on a puppet show!
- Leaf Cards: Take leaves from the yard and dry them. Lay out some plastic wrap and add various colors of paint for dipping. Dip the leaves into the paint, one at a time, and press the leaf onto some card stock. Mix colors and leaf patterns for some interesting designs. When done, fold over, sign card and send.
