HBBH Newsletter- Week 2
Please stay in your cars during pick-up time and a camp faculty member will come to your
car. If you need to get out of your car, please park legally do not disrupt the traffic flow.
Also, please make sure you send your child to camp with a lunch, if not purchasing one from
the school, and a water bottle labeled with your child’s name. Hathaway Brown is a peanut-
free environment, so we ask your help by trying to eliminate any nut products from your
child’s lunch. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in our effort to keep every camper

Corkscrew, DNA, and many more!

it with fabulous, colorful feathers. We also So much fun!

since they started by creating the ending of the stories and then they had to decide how they
got to the ending. Campers also created their very own tongue twisters.

game sharks and minnows, but spiced it up by combining it with the game Scattergories.

including cards, puzzles, math games, collaborative games, and board games. The focus this
