Join us at Camp Hillcroft this summer!
"This is my second year at Hillcroft and as soon as I set foot on the Camp this June I felt as if I never left. This is because Hillcroft leaves such a huge impression on people. Once you meet the staff and the campers you feel right at home. I have loved being a part of this family and have had the honor of working with such genine children and adults." (Carly F. US ‘07 & ‘08)

Staff Fall News!
I am teaching PE and Computer Lab at Holy Trinity School in Poughkeepsie, NY. I will be back at Hillcroft!
At the moment I am studying Global History at Dutchess Community College!! I am also working at LL Bean which is great! I will be back at camp. I can't wait to be back at Hillcroft, every where I go I take a little piece of Hillcroft with me and I can't think of anywhere else I would rather spend my summer's than at camp! :)
I am missing camp and looking forward to 2013!! I will be back.
I'm currently at the College of Saint Rose, studying Communication Sciences and Disorders and loving it! Hopefully I'll be home for the January reunion, but I am definitely excited to be back for Summer 2013! I will be back at Hillcroft.
I am currently a Freshman at Middlebury College in Vermont.I will be back at camp. Roll on Summer 2013... Can't come soon enough! Hill to the Croft!

I am doing lots of work on the house while working Part-time at The Home Depot in Brewster, NY. I want to come back and I think I can but it will depend on whether or not my teaching job is extended to September of 2013. If not, I'll have to get a full-time job or change careers again.
I'm currently in my third year in University in Galway, Ireland studying Microbiology. It's nowhere near as much craic as camp was for the summer! I don't think I will be returning to camp again next summer. I had the time of my life there, and I have made some very good friends but with all the work I have for college and low funds this year I can't see myself returning, but who knows, I could go back the summer after, who knows!?
I am completing my final year at university studying Childhood and Youth Studies and Abuse Studies, and I will graduate in July. I'm not enjoying the cold English weather and would do anything to be back at camp just for a day with everyone again! Camp is basically the topic of all my conversations now and I keep showing everyone all the pictures and videos on the website whether they want to see them or not! Missing all the staff and children loads and hope everyone is well :) I would love to come back to Hillcroft and be part of the family again. But, my graduation is at the start of July 2013 and it means a lot to me and my family to be able to attend. If there any opportunities available for second session I would be happy to work in any area at camp. I feel so priviledged for being able to go to camp and would be the happiest girl in Yorkshire if I got the opportunity to go again!
Currently I am teaching Physical Education. I will be back at Hillcroft. I am looking forward to another great summer in 1st grade

I am currently in my final year at university where I'm studying for a degree in English. I'm also working part time at a local bar. After finishing my degree I would love the opportunity to come back to Hillcroft for the summer. I enjoyed it so much this year and had the best summer so far!

I am also doing some work experience at Moorlands School, which is a wonderful place! I am also applying to do a PGCE (to become a primary teacher) to start next year.. fingers crossed! I would love to come back as the past 2 years have been the best two summers of my life! However, I don't think I will be able to afford it this year, but maybe in 2014!!
I'm back in Scotland finishing off university and playing a lot of sport apart form that just loving the student life!! I am hoping to be back at Hillcroft next summer, rocking it at the pool :)
After camp I went traveling across the country for 3 ½ weeks and had an amazing time. I’m currently saving some money by working in a temporary role at a call centre before I head off to the French Alps (Valmeinier ) where I’ll be working for the winter season as a Kitchen Assistant (can’t keep away from kitchen!). This should be until April and ideally leaves me a couple of months at home to recharge the batteries, earn some money and hopefully head back to camp!
I'm in my sophomore year at SUNY Cortland studying Health Education and I'm in the midst of adding a minor in College Health Prevention and Promotion or International Health, which is excited and super stressful at the same time. Besides that I'm getting busy with school, 2 cheerleading teams, a job, but Im having the time of my life! I love my second home in Cortland, but I miss home and camp so much everyday! I'm not sure what my plan is for next summer. If all goes well, I'd be an Orientation Assistant in Cortland for the first month of camp, and then come back!
I am enjoying my first year at the College of Charleston. I would absolutely love to be back! I can't wait! Bring on summer 2013!!
I am in my second year at the University at Buffalo studying occupational therapy. I am hoping to get into the professional program for occupational therapy this spring which will mean I have to take gross human anatomy this summer in Buffalo. The class ends in the middle of July, so if there is something I could do for second session I would love to come back, but otherwise hopefully another summer soon.
I am currently a freshman at SUNY Oneonta studying elementary education! I am really excited to be back for Summer 2013!

I have just relocated to Washington, CT to start my new teaching job. It is a very small town where everyone seems to know everyone but me! I am really enjoying my new apartment and especially my new job! Right now we are waiting BOE approval to take students on a trip to Oaxaca, Mexico with the organization Simply Smiles where we will do charity work. Once I hear about whether or not the trip is approved I will know more about my summer plans.
Life is NUTS right now!! We all miss camp SOOO much!! I've started a new job as an RN, and I'm very thankful to have a job, but it's certainly not camp!!! If that was not enough, I'm also taking 19 credits this semester towards my BSN!! When it rains, it pours, as they say!! Did I mention I miss camp??? I'm not sure yet about summer..but.....I am working on a way to make it all work out!!! Trying really hard!!

I am just about to finish college because I am in my final semester of classes at SUNY Cortland as a physical education major! Then after winter break, I will be student teaching in the spring. I will be back at Hillcroft!
I am currently still at university studying primary education, back and to from Wales catching up with family and friends that I didn't see over the summer, and talking about nothing other than camp and my travels after camp! "This one time at camp..." has become the start to nearly all my stories! Missing camp so badly! I most certainly caught the Hillcroft bug! I will be at Hillcroft next summer all being well, I can't think of anywhere I would rather be! I had the time of my life last summer and plan on doing the same this summer!
I'm currently at University in Sheffield in my 2nd year. There's a lot of work which is no fun but i'm working hard trying to keep on top of it all. Currently I'm about 80% certain to return to Hillcroft next year, i had so much fun this summer and would love the opportunity to come back providing all my plans fall into place.
Currently a nanny for a family in Fishkill .Also applying to colleges to finish my business and childcare degrees. Looking forward to summer 2013 :) I will be at Hillcroft!
Right now I am a Teacher of Economics at Millfield Senior School, Somerset. I am afraid it is looking unlikely that I will be able to come back for summer 2013. My school holidays begin on the 29th june (one week into kids being at Camp). Furthermore, my school have asked me to lead an Economics trip to North Korea and China at the start of the summer holidays (I work in a really wealthy boarding school) and if there is the demand from students then I will go on this one-off trip of a lifetime. Also, my friends are getting married on the Saturday 27th July so it looks like I would only be free for the final 3 weeks which is not appropriate.
I will keep you posted though (this N.Korea trip might not go ahead) and I will stay in touch - who knows summer 2014... I would certainly love to do one more summer camp!
Studying Physiotherapy at Sheffield Hallam University... just finished a 6 week placement at Northern General Hospital in Sheffield on a respiratory ward! I am currently organising flights to go to Thailand for a month in May to do Physiotherapy!... I would love to come back to Hillcroft, I l had an AWESOME summer :)!!
Right now I am in my second year in College studying Health and Leisure! Playing a lot of sport and missing Hillcroft everyday!! I'm not sure about Summer 2013 yet but will keep you updated! Don't think I could miss out on another summer at Camp!
Hey All...I'm back at school...driving that is. Having a great time with the kids...trying to avoid getting the 'cheese touch'. I will be back....Would love to be at camp in 2013.
Since camp has ended I started my junior year at Marist College. I can't wait to be back at Hillcroft!
