Tally Ho' !
Riding a horse, running to an activity, sprinting for lunch, or getting into the cabins after a jam packed day; every camper is accounted for at all times.
Not just a number or ‘tally’, not even close! Daily team huddles and constant communication between staff members monitor engagement, homesickness, interpersonal skills and overall satisfaction level throughout The Hollows Camp experience.

Sun, Bugs & Scuffed Knees
Cover up and protect so you can play more! Sun burns and bad bug bites from not using protective clothing or sprays can really be a bummer at camp. Flip flops and shorts for the forest spell scuffed knee you don’t knee’d.
We encourage all campers and staff to stay covered with a minimum of SPF 15 (waterproof/weatherproof is best), sunbathing is discouraged. Use bug spray when applicable and alert staff prior to coming of any bug sensitivities.
