Opening Day!!!

Pictures from June 6, 2010 (password protected)


We couldn’t have asked for better weather today. Blue skies were intermixed with bright clouds, a nice breeze was blowing all day, and sounds of excitement permeated the air! The campers have already visited each of the activity areas during the day and picked their activities tonight. 

Most of today’s pictures are from this afternoon.  We will normally post pictures by 9pm, but circumstances may occasionally delay us until later.

Monday will be the first full day of activities. I will try to send your initial letter from camp on Monday or Tuesday. In the letter I will have your son’s schedule and will tell you a bit about his counselor. At this session we have 115 campers and 68 staff members. Most of our staff are returning counselors or former High Rocks campers (59 of the 68 staff members). If you haven’t had a chance to look over our wonderful staff yet, be sure to look over our 2010 summer staff page.

As we add to the blog throughout the session we might refer to evening age group activities. Just so you know where your son’s cabin fits in, here are how the age groups line up (youngest to oldest):

“Juniors”– (Hillside & Connestee)
“Middler 1”– (Lakeside & Foxhollow)
“Middler 2” – (Flattop, Holiday & Chalet)
“Upper Middlers” – (Windswept & Outpost)
“Seniors” – (Halfway)
“Upper Seniors” – (Lookout)

Please remember not to send packages of any sort. Packages will not be delivered to campers (if there is a birthday, call us for instructions). If you need to send a forgotten item of clothing, medication, etc, call our office first & then send the item to the attention of our office staff. Our office staff will open the package & deliver the item.

Enjoy the pictures- we will try to post by 9pm each day, but it can be much later, or even the next day. Sometimes the pictures are from the previous day, sometimes they are from earlier in the same day.

We’re looking forward to a great session. Be sure to visit often to check out pictures as the session progresses.

Take care,

Hank Birdsong
Camp Director
