Hellloooooo, HVC! Hummingbird h– GUESS WHAT IT’S THE FIRST DAY OF CLASSES!! I couldn’t even finish saying “Hummingbird here” because I am just SO excited for first session to REALLY start with our classes and activities!! We are SO ready, too!

On Orientation Day yesterday we all got our health check ups, photos (be on the lookout in the mail for pictures of your campers, folks at home!), and tours of camp. Everybody signed up for classes, which was really really tough to choose, too, because there are so many fun options! I’m still trying to decide between paddle boarding and nature art! Maybe I’ll just fly around camp all day and take pictures of all the fun for you to enjoy instead…

Last night we went up to the Pinegrove, our beautiful amphitheater at the top of Tipi Hill. Each cabin sang a lovely song for us to open up our session and get camp rolling. Of course we had some classics like Hermie the Worm (from our Wombles Worms), the Jellyfish, and Baby Shark. But we also had some newer songs, like Shangri-La’s version of Take me Home Country Roads, which they re-wrote to be about HVC!

It was such a perfect start to our session! And when we came back down from Pinegrove we went back to our cabins and all got a GREAT night’s sleep before the start of the first day of classes WHICH IS TODAY AND WE’RE ALL REALLY EXCITED ABOUT IT CAN YOU TELL?!??!?!??!?!?!
