Hello from Country Day Camp!

July 11, 2014
By Ms. Tashiro

Summer is in full swing at Country Day!

Next week (7/14-18), Country Day Camp is Frozen! Join us anytime next week for fun crafts and activities based on this year's hit movie, "Frozen." On Thursday, campers will get to turn their counselors into snowmen and women! For Friday, the super creative camp counselors at Rolling Hills Country Day Camp have come up with another fantastic show. Campers will watch the evil Dr. Glacier, who has been causing havoc all over camp recently, be defeated by familiar "Frozen" characters like Olaf.

And that's not all! We don't want to ruin any surprises, but something has us humming the tune, "Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!"

Please note that Nathanson's Photography will be on campus on Thursday, July 17, to take camp group pictures and individual underwater photos. If you can't make it to camp on Thursday, don't worry! Nathanson's will be on campus again on Wednesday, July 30. If your child is not scheduled to attend either of these days, you are welcome to bring him/her to camp just for the photo portion of the day. The underwater photos take place during the morning swim times. Please call the camp office for more information at (310) 377-4848, ext. 7051, or email Melissa Wilton at

By Ms. Tashiro


In celebration of Independence Day, Country Day camp hosted the Second Annual Hotdog Eating Competition on the front patio. Coaches from the boys' and girls' groups competed against one another as campers cheered on. Footage from the men's contest and overtime "hotdog off" are available on our Facebook page.

Campers also enjoyed an all-camp carnival on the back field with favorite games and booths like the bottle toss, dunk tank, face painting, shaved ice, and cotton candy, to name a few.

*Please note that there will be no summer programs tomorrow, Friday, July 4, in observation of Independence Day. We wish everyone a fun and safe weekend.
