Week 3 - Monday (First Official Day!)

Today was our first full day at Hye Camp! We started this morning with chapel, which set the tone for a peaceful day.  After breakfast were four different morning sessions.  Today also marked the beginning of cabin cleanup awards.  The winners got Smores at campfire!  This afternoon was filled with homemade pizza, sports, arts & crafts, lakeside and more!  The entire camp got together for a photo, which everyone will get to take home at the end of the week.  What a perfect start to what is shaping up to be a memorable week!

Week 3 - Sunday (Welcome to Hye Camp!)

Week 3 has officially begun!  All the buses got here safely, as did everyone else.  Counselors have decorated and personalized the cabins and everyone is enjoying getting to know each other and bonding.  Around 4:00 the entire camp came down the hill for a mandatory fire drill.  At the drill, each cabin also got to introduce themselves with an enthusiastic cheer.  Before chapel, all the program staff informed the campers and counselors what will be expected of them and all the fun activities they have to look forward to.  Tonight after a delicious dinner, the camp held an ice cream social, which was the perfect opportunity for everyone to socialize even more.  We ended our first night at Hye Camp with a campfire full of cabin skits, sing-a-longs, and winding down with a beautiful song.  Looking forward to day two!!

Wedensday - Week 2 - Dance the Night Away!

Laghmajoun rocks and so do our campers and counselors who painstakingly made each mezza size delicious piece during our Armenian Cooking classes!

Our first year ever Dunlapian Games went off to an amazing start and tested the skills of our campers on every level!  They of course beat every challenge and made us all proud with their diligence, determination and athletic skills!  Yay Dunlapian Champions of Hye Camp!

May the Forest be with you Dance brought out the inner power of all the campers, counselors and not to mention energetic staff!  From creative and fun costumes to electrifying dance moves down to the international tunes played by our awesome AMS music DeeJay, the whole event was super, super, super!  Our intrepid photographer Sona (Sona is AWESOME!) saw photo opportunities at every turn, as you also will at the end of the week when we download all the photos on our webiste!  For now, enjoy this sample!
