Opening Day Details

Opening day of camp can be one of the most exciting and at the same time one of the most awkward days of camp.

Knowing our schedule and check in procedures ahead of time will at least reduce fear of the unknown.

In the video to the right, Karla walks you through what a typical Opening Day at Heart O’ the Hills Camp looks like.

Full Term (4 week) and
Split A (2 week) Campers

The Schedule is as follows:

10 a.m. Gates open
12 p.m. Buffet lunch in the Dining Hall
1:00 p.m. Families depart
1:30 p.m. Campers get informal
camp tours with cabin groups
3:00 p.m. Activity registration at the Village

Split Term B (2 week)

The Schedule is as follows:

2 p.m. Gates open
Because our full-term campers are here already, we ask you to bid goodbye at The Village checkin area, and let your camper’s counselor get her moved in.

4:00 p.m. Families depart
4:15 p.m. Activity registration at the Village

Check In Procedures

When you drive into the gate, our Village is the building straight ahead (attached to the office). Park wherever you find a spot and come into the Village for your camper’s nametag.

No Pets Please

Please do not bring your pets on opening or closing day! It is very hot, and there are not many places for them to get out of the heat. There are a lot of people around camp on these days and we have had issues with dogs in the past. We feel the simplest way to avoid this and keep everyone happy is to leave them at home.
