Learn About Camp Hilltop

Camp should be filled with amazing friends, incredible fun and unparalleled experiences. Every summer at Camp Hilltop, we create a child-centered community that becomes one big family. It happens naturally because Hilltop has outstanding campers, nurturing staff, a supportive structure and a community that is sized for success. Take these ingredients and you have Hilltop’s family recipe, allowing our campers to quickly settle into camp life while feeling relaxed and comfortable. With comfort comes the openness to challenge one’s self, take chances, try new things and discover personal growth, all while making lifelong friends. This is the foundation of Hilltop and our wish for each and every one of our campers, whether it is their first year or 10th year within our camp community.

Our family atmosphere, convenient session options and affordable fees are just the beginning. Since 1924, Camp Hilltop has been a place where children can flourish, be the person they want to, learn a new hobby or increase skills in something they already love, be accepted by everyone and make friends that will last a lifetime. Hilltop becomes a home-away-from-home. We invite you to come see how a summer at Hilltop is an experience you will cherish for a lifetime.
