Helloooooo HVC family! April showers bring May flowers, and what does the Mayflower bring? PRE-CAMP!! Counselors old and new have been trickling into camp with the schvitz and waking up our sleepy springtime Valley so it can bloom into a beautiful, wonderful, fabulous, kid-ready summer camp! As you can see in the photos below, camp is a’blossom with colorful flowers, and staff who are here a little early are pitching in to convert wintertime HVC to the summer experience we all know and love. Let’s take a look!
Building projects like The New Normal and Wombles are wrapping up and can I say, they are looking mighty inhabitable! Early arriving horse staff are mucking out the barn and getting all the horsies ready to ride- looks like fun! The pool, which was re-painted over the winter, is sparkly and new and ready for a dip! Our crews of helpful early counselors are sweeping and schlepping and prepping all our beloved camp areas so that programs like the Ropes Course, Waterfront, and art areas will be up and running when the rest of staff arrive to begin training! All with the help of our Program Directors, Hope, Aileen, Georgia, and Ilana, who are organizing the office and preparing to train our incoming staff!
Of course, it’s not all work work work… there are doggies on camp like Luke, Moose, and Nellie; the kittens MUST be cuddled daily; and baby Tui just turned one! Check out the camp Instagram for pictures of all that @hidden_valley_camp_maine 🙂
Camp is just beginning to wake up from its winter hibernation, and even amidst all the work of getting camp ready for the summer, we are all stopping to smell the flowers while it’s still Spring! Before we know it, the days will be longer and hotter, and camp will be getting a little busier.
