The Hi Hills team would like to thank you for your interest in learning more about our wonderful camp. We hope you and your families are safe and healthy! In following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), and the American Camp Association (ACA), we have cancelled our Open House previously scheduled for this Sunday, April 5.

We would love to meet you and spend some time with your children participating in an activity, touring the campus and sharing some of the experiences Hi Hills at Gill St. Bernard's has to offer.

The Summer Leadership

The team at Hi Hills is a devoted and caring group of people dedicated to nurturing and teaching your children. The majority of our team members are teachers and college students with a supporting team of high school students over the age of 16. Many are former campers helping to carry on the traditions of our camp after going through our Leaders of Tomorrow (LOTs) program. This great mix of individuals provides a balance of enthusiasm, understanding and exceptional care.

Most of our academic, enrichment and sport programs are led by our very own Gill St. Bernard's faculty members. Every Hi Hills team member goes through a background check and attends training sessions before the first day of camp. Hi Hills lifeguards are certified in first aid, CPR and AED, in addition to their American Red Cross lifeguard certifications.
