#2: HVC is situated on ~350 acres of land in Montville, Maine! BONUS: Montville is a teeny tiny town without a post office, so sometimes we address our letters to Freedom, Maine, which is the nearest post office! But technically camp is in Montville.
#3: Current-day ‘Burbs cabin Shangri-La used to be called Utopia! BONUS: Back then, the Backyard cabin that is currently called Gimme Shelter was called Shangri-La!
#4: The farm house used to be ON TOP OF TIPI HILL!! Can you believe it??
#5: Ben Stiller spent a summer in the Valley when he was a kid! BONUS: He stayed in a cabin called The Morgue (named for its bunkbeds that were stacked 3-high, instead of the regular 2-high). The Morgue is no longer a cabin, it’s been converted into one of several gender neutral restrooms on camp!
