Please note that your responses will remain anonymous and confidential.

90th Anniversary Family and Friends Event at Camp Seven Hills
July 30 to August 1, 2021

Better late than never! Let’s enjoy an in-person celebration of 90 years of Camp Seven Hills since we couldn’t gather last year!

Attendance numbers will be limited due to COVID regulations. Register now to reserve your spot! See flyer in event discussion tab for full details.

Did you know that Camp Seven Hills opened its doors in 1930 and served 50 campers that summer? Much has changed over the years. This summer Camp Seven Hills will be celebrating 90 years of summer camp adventures. Be a part of our belated celebratory weekend as you get a chance to see how camp has grown and developed through the years. Swimming, boating, ropes course, arts & crafts, tours, laughter, evening campfires, candlelit path ceremony, and lots of s’mores will be a part of this festive weekend. Ropes course will be on a first come, first served basis and will be an additional fee payable at camp.

The Saturday-only portion of the event begins July 31 at 9:30am. ONLINE ONLY: Shop the 90th Anniversary merch! There will not be an in-person shop at camp this year.
