Camp Cheat Sheet

For all of our new incoming campers (and for those who want to start getting back into that good ‘ol camp spirit!), we thought we’d jot down a few camp terms, along with their definitions, to help get you started so that when you set foot on HCDC grounds in 33 days, you’ll be off and running!

CLUB PROGRAM – Elective Program that allows our upper campers to choose a favorite activity for a full hour each day.  These activities run on two week cycles.

FUZZIES – Wonderfully whimsical little pompoms given to campers for demonstrating STARFISH.

GAGA – A fun and spirited game, played with a soft rubber ball in a turf covered enclosed GaGa court.
