After a day of beautiful weather and activities, and a quick rain shower (Rainbow pictured below!), the Hird participated in one of the highlights of the summer, Tokyo Night. Every year, our Tokyo Camp (a Japanese-language camp in partnership with the Tokyo YMCA) hosts a culture sharing event. The campers and staff from the program facilitate a number of different activities including origami fishing (you fish around in a bucket until you get a plastic bag that contains instructions and materials for an origami project), calligraphy, and many others. The staff also perform a dance a few times throughout the night for all of the villages.

Born in New York but raised in Ireland, Morgan has spent every summer he can remember flying back to the US to attend summer camps. Over the years that Morgan worked at a well-regarded private camp in Maine, he took on many roles including Cabin Counselor, Head of Rocks and Ropes, Program Director, and Operations Director. Morgan began working at Frost Valley as a program instructor in 2014, leading activities for our schools and weekend programs, before becoming our Director of Camp Henry Hird. Campers at Camp Henry Hird range in age from 13 to 16. Morgan loves working with this age group as he finds that this is the time of their life where they form into unique individuals and discover the values that they will hold with them for the rest of their lives.
