Great Day Camp in Hudson Valley
My daughter has gone to Camp Hillcroft for the past two summers, and we anticipate many more. The camp is extremely well-organized with a wide variety of activities, including a strong swimming program. She is outdoors every day and comes home tired but happy. She does see friends from school at camp, but also has many new "camp friends" that we look forward to seeing each year. I am glad that she has an opportunity to develop interests and confidence in a supportive, friendly environment in the summer.
Enameling is a very popular Camp Hillcroft Program Area that is offered to campers in the 3rd grade and older. Campers learn to appreciate jewelry design and the intricacies of copper enamel work. Campers love to show off their wonderful projects that emerge from this art shop such as earrings, pendants, little trays etc... Campers also explore other forms of jewelry design using elements such as leather and wire.
