A message from the Executive Director . . .

It's hard to believe that Camp is just a few weeks away! We are busy hiring staff and getting kids registered for what we are sure is going to be our best summer yet (and yes, I know we say that every summer - but it really does just keep getting better and better)! The number of registered campers we have so far is ahead of where we were at this time last year so it looks like it's going to be a very full two weeks! Parents, if you haven't yet registered your child for camp I'd encourage you to do so sooner rather than later. Spots are filling up quickly, and we'd hate for you to miss out. We also still have financial assistance and sponsorship dollars available, so don't let the cost of camp get in the way of your child having one of the best weeks of their life!

In other news, I hope you'll read the section below about our Family Weekend. We had a huge group join us for a great couple of days full of campfires, informative speakers, a dance hosted by the teens, and even a "Smoothie Bike" (provided by United Healthcare)! It's always so fun to be at camp in the Spring - and it really gets us excited for the summer.

Hope to see you in a few weeks at camp! Thank you for being part of the Camp Hertko Hollow family!

Jessica Thornton, Executive Director
