Celebrate Earth Day

Earth Day is an annual event celebrated around the world on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, it now includes events coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network in more than 193 countries.

At Hi-Rock we partner with the Nature Conservancy, a global environmental non-profit, to maintain our land and lake for all the plants, animals, and campers that live here throughout the year.

In honor of Earth Day, we encourage all Hi-Rockers to get involved! Wear your Hi-Rock apparel, post a photo on Facebook or Instagram, and tag us with the hashtag #hirockershelpout or email your photo to heather@camphirock.org to earn points for your unit through 4/24!
