Week 5 – Opening Day!

It’s time to “Travel Around the World in 6 Days”….. or so the theme says!

Camp Seven Hills started its sixth week off with a rainy move in, but that didn’t keep us from having fun. The rain broke long enough for swimming and riding tests to occur. Then we ended our evening with opening campfire, filled with learning songs and skits to meet our counselors.

Stay tuned for the week to get daily updates on what is happening with each program.

Here are some photos from opening campfire. New pictures will be posted daily!

 

Week 4 – Day 4 !

A very full and busy day for everyone at Camp Seven Hills on the fourth day!

The day was finished with our closing campfire, where each unit presented a song for the camp family and our staff did the traditional friendship path.
