Club Registration Requirements
If you are not a Club Member of Hickory Hills Country Club, you must be “Sponsored” by a Club Member in order to register your child for camp. The Sponsoring Member will not be charged in association with Camp Hickory in any way, however, he or she must be aware that you are listing him or her as your Sponsor. This policy allows Hickory Hills Country Club to ensure that all Non-Members attending camp are associated with a Club Member in some way.
Age Range: 5 - 10
All campers must be at least 5 years old by the first day they attend camp. In addition, campers must be potty-trained and able to handle a full day program.
Each day of camp will be a new and exciting experience for our campers as no two days with KECamps are exactly alike! Our days begin with Hello Camp, a morning meeting of sorts where, through an assortment of organized activities, campers and staff get to know each other, review the day’s schedule and sing our special camp song! Similarly, we will end our days with Goodbye Camp, a time for wrap-up activities and reflections, SMILE Bands, snacks, and “see you later’s”. The bulk of camp will be spent participating in a wide variety of activities throughout the day that may include:

Lunch & Snacks
The club will provide a delicious and kid-friendly lunch for every camper each day. If you would prefer to pack your own lunch for your child, please do so in a cooler or backpack. A snack will be served each afternoon to all campers. We encourage you to pack some extra snacks for your child as well.
Please note that we are a “nut aware” camp. We ask that you do not pack any food for your child that contains nuts. Likewise, the lunches and snacks served by the club will not contain any nuts. If your child has a food allergy and you have questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact us.
KECamps requires all campers to wear our official camp shirt each day of the week. Additional shirts may be purchased at camp. Campers should dress in comfortable clothing and tennis shoes. Camp is a place to un-plug! Please leave all electronic devices and cell phones at home. Please pack the following items in a labeled bag or backpack:

Meet Your Camp Director
Greeting Camp Families!
My name is Vickie Windmiller, and I am thrilled to be returning to Camp Hickory as your director for the second summer (and my fourth year as a director for KE Camps). Last summer was packed with so many fun adventures. I look forward to meeting new friends while welcoming old friends back to camp.
When I am not at camp, I am an early childhood instructor for Willard Public Schools. I am a graduate of Missouri State University and have been a certified teacher for over 25 years. My experience includes instruction in college, high school, home school, kindergarten and preschool.
I have been married for 24 years and have two children. My son is a college sophomore and my daughter will be entering seventh grade. We spend lots of time at the lake wakeboarding and tubing. We love to spend time outdoors camping, cycling, and riding dirt bikes. We also have an adorable cocker spaniel named Mabel who loves to kayak and has begun to post about her many adventures on her own Youtube Channel called, “Marvelous Mabel”.
Summer is such a sweet time for me because I absolutely love to plan unique and meaningful experiences for campers. It is so exciting to teach new games, introduce creative crafts, and plan themed activities that keep you engaged and enthusiastic about camp. Ever beat your dad at golf or served an ace to your mom at tennis? Well, our extra practices at golf, tennis, and the pool also add opportunities for you to hone those skills that are often enjoyed by your entire family at Hickory Hills Country Club!
This summer, I am excited to bring back our famous “Find-the-Camp-Stick” and “Follow-the-Clues Hide and Seek” games, as well as four incomparable weeks that will be packed with crafts, Wacky Wednesdays, STEM/STEAM activities, and our ever-popular Iron Chef Competitions! Camp Hickory is unlike any other camp you have ever experienced before and I cannot wait to see you there!
