Welcome Junior Campers!

It sure was an incredible opening day! I enjoyed meeting all the new families and campers that have decided to join us for this session.  I am so excited to share the wonder of what we do every day.  My hope is to capture the moment and let you in on a little of what is happening at High Rocks.  I’ll try to include you in a lesson or two on why things work out the way they do and add some notes on why we do it. As with most writers, some days will be a little better than others and I am certain my proofing will lead to something to be desired.  My hope is that you will find the time and energy it takes to get these boys here to High Rocks is worth it and an important part of their development. Now on to some details…

Everyone was here by 11:00 am, which allowed us to move into our first activity rotation before lunch. After a tasty lunch of chicken fingers, pasta salad, chips, and salad bar, we were ready to take on the afternoon. The boys are enjoying all sorts of introductions to some of what we offer in our longer sessions.  Today we hit a little horseback, potter, the climbing wall, and canoeing on the lake. 

Below tonight’s blog is the link to the High Rocks Gallery. You will notice that our website and picture gallery is very user-friendly on almost any device, including mobile and tablet devices.  This gallery is password protected. If you are new to the gallery, you should have received an automated email today with details for your login.  If you are returning, use the email address that received the opening day email.  Your password is the same as last year. If you cannot remember, just use the “forgot password” link to retrieve a new one. Be sure to check out our gallery help page for details on picture downloads and navigation.

It may make sense to save the link and log in to your browser for quick access. I will try my best to get the blog up by 9:30 pm each night, but sometimes camp does get in the way, or our rural internet has been quite slow. Don’t fret! We will get you the pictures as soon as we can! We are likely to push up some pictures throughout the day, but they will continue to go up until the blog is live.  Once the blog is up, it typically means that pictures are up for the day.

Don’t forget to follow us on social media.  We will make it worth your while by putting up a couple of extra pictures and a special video from time to time during the day. Facebook:  Camp High Rocks, and on Instagram. Feel free to throw up some of these great pictures to share on your feed.  We like making High Rocks look good!

Tonight, we enjoyed lasagna, broccoli, corn, fresh yeast rolls, a salad bar, and scratch-made chocolate chip cookies.  After dinner, we played an epic game of dodgeball complete with epic theme music in the background.  Tomorrow is going to be another fun one!

Again, we see it as an honor and a privilege to have your boys here at High Rocks.  If anything did not go as planned today, please let us know. If you EVER have a question, please ask us! We want it to be an enjoyable experience for everyone!

Here comes the best time yet!
