Camp in Bloom and Staff at Work

Cherry Blossom in bloom by the llama pen

Hi there, friends! Olive Oyl here with some more pre-camp news! We’ve had a lovely Memorial Day weekend here in Maine, with the sun poking out a little bit and reminding us that summer is on its way! Staff enjoyed a weekend off with a barbeque hosted by one of our PDs and her family.

On Friday we had a pizza party on camp to celebrate all the efforts of those who helped up make our new office a reality. Stone masons and carpenters and painters and community members all came together to eat delicious pizza, cake, and libations after a winter and spring of hard work. So it’s safe to say the pizza oven is back up and running and tastes as delicious as ever! We’re so excited to break in our office this summer and show it off to our whole HVC family.

Meanwhile on camp, trees are blooming and camp is becoming more colorful as we get ready to welcome in a new summer. Our PK crew is hard at work all over camp getting cabins and trails ready for lots of footsteps and campers to come. Our ropes director Seth has arrived so course setup is underway, just as our other danger area on the other side of camp, the horse barn, is busy getting things ready and taking care of our beautiful ponies.

Be sure to check out the photos of camp in bloom plus our pizza party extravaganza! Stay tuned for more news as staff begin to trickle in this week and we gear up for staff training!

Hugs and kisses,

Olive
