SPECIAL EVENTS 

Special surprise events will take place during the summer for all of the campers to enjoy.

NATURE 

Campers will develop their love for all living things. The H.E.S. Nature provides the unique opportunity to get outside learn about and interact with nature.

ARTS AND CRAFTS 

Don’t send good clothing because your campers will get messy and have a great time creating amazing arts and crafts projects.

DANCE 

Campers will learn the newest dances, move to the oldies and shake their bodies during dance.

ORGANIZED SPORT ACTIVITIES 

Taking place in our fully air-conditioned gym, as well as in Seaview Park, campers will have the time of their lives racing, competing, and playing socially safe sports with all of their summer camp friends.

STEM/PROJECT BASED LEARNING 

Led by a New York State Licensed Teacher, campers will have the opportunity to learn and explore while taking part in fun filled educational projects.

MUSIC AND SINGING

Campers will learn how to create music using different instruments while singing and creating fun camp songs.

PHOTOGRAPHY

Our oldest campers have the unique opportunity to test their photography skills. Each week campers will learn a new technique, style, and tricks of the trade. They will then “hit the ground shooting” and build a group photo portfolio throughout the summer.

FRIDAYS AT THE DRIVE-IN

The H.E.S. transforms its auditorium each and every Friday into a Drive-in theater. Campers will have the opportunity to take in a flick from the comfort of their own designed, socially safe, cars while enjoying a popcorn snack.
