Pool and Bathhouse Campaign

Our beloved HI HO CA Pool is ready to retire. It has been a wonderful friends for thousands of campers but it just can’t meet today’s needs. Find out below how you can help support the NEW HI HO CA POOL!

Our Need

In 1957, Hiram House Camp constructed the first pool and bathhouse on our property. Since that time tens of thousands of campers have used the facility each summer. One of the highlights of summer camp is always swimming and that is certainly case with the Hi Ho Ca Pool.  New facilities help to stimulate all children at camp by providing positive experiences, relationships and encourage universal qualities and traits that are essential to function successfully in today’s world.

It is now time that Hiram House Camp and its Board of Director’s embark on a capital campaign to build a new pool and bathhouse.
