We’re all settled in!

Saturday, July 25th, 2015


Greetings, on the tail end of a wonderful Arrival Day!! Humming Bird here with some more updates on how our campers are acclimating to camp life!

The campers are all settled into their cabins, and the camp is tucked in tight and ready to get lots of rest before our high energy orientation day tomorrow! Campers will sign up for classes, get acquainted with the layout of HVC, and take their swimming evaluations– all in one day!!

BUT FIRST!! Here’s what we did today!

The campers arrived in a staggered manner, by planes, trains and automobiles (mostly buses, cars, and planes) and met up with their cabin groups! We had awesome activities going on in the front yard, like a jam session, friendship bracelets, frisbee, and name tag making! Campers and counselors bonded over sports, music, and arts and crafts, and waited to meet the people they’ll be living with for the next month! Check out some pictures below!!

We had our first second session Evening Meeting as a whole camp, and enjoyed a delicious dinner of fried chicken, provided by our kitchen staff!!

After dinner, campers filed into the Rec Hall, where our counselors put on the Opening Night Skits! Anchormen U-Betcha and Tucker Chin Cat led us through the night’s news, reporting on different areas around camp! Along with each report, counselors announced what classes they will be teaching for the next two weeks, so campers know what they want to sign up for tomorrow!!

We’ve got a super exciting day ahead of us tomorrow, and Cat Nap and I can’t wait to tell you all about it!! Check back in for more news to come!

I’m off to catch some Zzzz’s!
