Camp Overview


The mission of Camp HDS is to enrich the emotional, social and physical life of each camper while incorporating educational activities and skills through hands-on experience. We promote team-building activities and strive to create an atmosphere where campers feel a sense of unity and confidence.

Dragon Trainer (Rising 6th, 7th)

This program combines your child’s favorite camp activities and field trips with an introductory service learning component that focuses on teamwork, leadership, and community service within the camp. All Dragon Trainers will be issued a certificate for their service learning hours.

Counselor In Training (CIT) (Rising 8th-12th)

CIT’s will learn responsibility while participating in service learning activities focusing on character building, responsibility, and leadership. Under the teacher’s supervision, CIT’s will assist with younger camp groups and activity set- up while participating in activities with their peers. Lessons learned as a CIT at Camp HDS are valuable tools for future academic, personal, and professional endeavors. All CITs will be issued a certificate for their service learning hours. CITs are encouraged to volunteer for at least 2 weeks.
