For Parents…

  • Table Talk continues! Table Talk is a gathering for persons interested in getting together with other adults for the purpose of fellowship, study, and conversation. This group meets at 4:30 pm at The Stag’s Head (106 Glenwood Avenue). They will meet on April 24 and May 15 and then begin meeting every other Sunday starting June 5. They will spend the hour on book/faith/life conversation. You are invited to arrive early and stay late for extended times of fellowship. Invite friends and neighbors to join the conversation and fellowship. Chocolate and popcorn provided. If you are looking for a peer group gathering or an intentional place of belonging at Hillyer, Table Talk is an opportunity to discover and experience both. For more information, contact Cindy Bolden.

Snack Supper…

  • Youth contribute $3 each for their meal. Food costs will be offset from those contributions. Please make sure if your child is eating you send $3 cash with them!

Important 2016 Summer Camp Registration Info…

  • Several changes have come with the release of the 2016 Summer Camp Registration information. We wanted to simplify the timeline in order for families with children and youth to better plan their summer and fee payment schedule.
  • Each youth will be awarded a $100 scholarship from Hillyer towards their total 2016 camp fees. In order to receive this scholarship, you must register through Hillyer with the following guidelines:
    • Friday, April 29: Last Day for Refunds
      • After April 29, no refunds will be issued. Prior to April 29, you can be refunded minus a $100 penalty from the region ($50 for weekend camps). Registrations using the YES Fund will be responsible for paying back the refund penalty to Hillyer.
  • This year, your youth will not be registered with the camp until your full fee payment has been recorded at Hillyer. We are ready and available to answer questions, address concerns, and assist with YES Fund Scholarships.
  • The Yes Fund is a need-based event scholarship available through application for Hillyer members. With the changes in fees, the YES Fund will not cover refund penalties or the $25 fee up-charge to registrations past March 10.
  • Hillyer provides transportation to camps with 4 or more youth registered. Transportation is first come, first serve and will be finalized by May 15. After May 15, youth will only be able to be added as space allows. Otherwise, youth are responsible for their own transportation.
  • If you have a question or concern, please ask!! Communication up front with Catherine or Donna Moore is encouraged! Communication will help us help you have a fun and enriching camp season!
