Pictures from June 12, 2011 (password required)
What a great opening day for our 2011 season! The clear blue skies were interrupted briefly by some afternoon showers, but the activity level was uninterrupted. There were lots of happy faces around camp today. The only exception was my expression when we discovered there was a typo on the parent handout. Closing day is on FRIDAY, July 1.
Most of today’s pictures are from this afternoon. We will normally post pictures by 9pm, but circumstances may occasionally delay us until later. We try to post around 100 pictures each day, but may post more on some days, like today.
The campers have already visited each of the activity areas during the day and then picked their activities tonight. 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 147 campers and 75 staff members. Most of our staff are returning counselors or former High Rocks campers (58 of the 75 staff members). If you haven’t had a chance to look over our wonderful staff yet, be sure to look over our 2011 summer staff page.
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.
It was a pleasure seeing so many returnig faces as well all the new families today. We’re looking forward to a great session. Be sure to visit often to check out pictures as the session progresses.
ps- Did I mention that closing day is on a Friday??
