As I walked through camp today, watching activities and getting to know some of the boys, I couldn’t help but notice what a great staff we have here at camp! Our young men and women at High Rocks work so hard to help these guys have a great camp experience. Today was no exception! I saw so many awesome camp experiences today; it was amazing!
We work hard to find the best staff for your sons, but we work even harder to keep them coming back year after year. We have over 30 staff that have been working here for five or more years! Once we find the right ones we do whatever it takes to keep them here. Not only are they great at the skills they teach, but they are great at working with kids, and they love it!
What an awesome day today! Lots of warm weather and a perfectly timed thunderstorm right at the beginning of rest hour. The afternoon was filled with the sights of “Waterworld” down in canoeing where the staff did a little scenario referencing the infamous movie, then floating around the lake on a ship made of canoes –complete with a water slide, of course. The climbers tried their skills on the tower with a themed “adventure day.” Some guys were even making it up the tower blindfolded. Horseback riding did gymkhana, or games on horseback. Finally, hiking had their own little piece of Americana going on with a “car camping” theme complete with pie irons, hot dog skewers, a nice big fire, a pickup truck (of course), rock and roll music, and even Jiffy Pop popcorn!
The fun never ends here at High Rocks. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
Have a great night, we sure are!!!
