Wohelo! The official start of fall is just around the corner and camp is unusually quiet without the laughter and joy of our campers. It was a great summer here at Hantesa and we hope all of our campers and counselors have enjoyed it as much as we, the full-time staff, have! Right now, most of our campers are reconnecting with school friends while most of our counselors have either resumed classes themselves or are still traveling throughout the USA. But even with all of the excitement of a new school year and traveling, we know some of you are already missing camp so we’ve come up with a few tips to help you cope during the time between summers!
- Return for fall programs: Although summer is our busiest time of the year, we are open all year long! Coming up this fall we have Camp Fire Day Camps during those miscellaneous days off from school, Afternoon at the Ranch, Family Camp, Mom/Youth Overnights, and even a haunted trail that is appropriate for the whole family! We have also started a brand new Plein Air Club for youth AND adults to come out and enjoy Hantesa’s scenery while painting or drawing! So, even though the weather may be a bit cooler, there are still plenty of reasons to visit! Follow the links provided to learn more or to register!
- Revisit some of your favorite moments: We have photos from every week of day camp and resident camp on our Facebook page as well as the Hantesa Instagram. If you are missing camp, these are a great way to reminisce! Make sure and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter so you can keep in touch with us about upcoming events/happenings at camp! You can find the links for those accounts at the top of this page, just click on the icons in the top right corner!
- Keep an eye out for winter and spring events: Remember, whenever school is out, camp is open! Registration is not yet available for our winter and spring programs, but they are coming! We have winter resident camp, a new years eve party, and much more on the way so make sure and keep your calendars clear!
- Start a countdown: If you really can’t wait until next summer, then start counting down the days! Make sure and mark your calendar and coordinate with camp friends about when you want to come to camp! Also make sure and recruit some of your new friends from school for a week of fun and excitement at Camp Hantesa in 2017!
