Hermann Sons report big camping season
Comfort Plus Economy
The 40th annual Hermann Sons youth camping season, which ended in mid-August, attracted the thrird highest attendance since 1954, when Riverside Youth Camp opened on the Guadalupe River near Comfort. Dedicated on July 14, 1991, Hilltop Camp, located on the same 330-acre tract, was in service for its second full 10-week camping season.
Included in the 3,483 campers were 355 from Comal County.
As part of the fraternal benefits package offered to the 80,000 Hermann Sons members statewide, campers pid only $60 per week to attend camp, which represents 24 percent ofthe actual cost to maintain a camper at one of the Hermann Sons facilities for a week. Camps Director Buddy Preuss said the cost to campers is about one-eighth the cost of a private Hill Country camp, that is comparable to Hermann Sons' camps' facilities and programs.
The summer camping season is reserved for junior members between the ages of nine and 13; however, with the opening of Hilltop Camp, a yearlong camping program has been started for families, older teens and seniors.
