Hi Hawkeye Community, We’re here to pass along some sad news. We have decided that it is in the best interest of our campers, camper families, and staff to cancel all of our Summer 2020 camp sessions. Camp will begin again in June 2021. Our number 1 priority continues to be the health and safety of our participants. Before anything else can happen, before a Camp Hawkeye necklace can be tied on, Treasure Hunt organized, or a Lincoln and Lafayette hike completed, we need to be sure of the safety of our people.  Those of you who know Hawkeye well, know...

Separating the Identity of the Child from the Behavior : At Hawkeye We Don’t Make Campers Apologize   Have you ever been made to say you’re sorry?   That’s not even a reasonable question… we all have.  The more apt question is: How many times have you been made to say you’re sorry?  Once (ha!)?   One Hundred Times (hmm)?  More (yup)?

The idea was they would get a handful of men to grow mustaches, post pictures of their progress, and ask people to donate based on how much they liked or disliked their mustache. They would spend the entire month of April growing a mustache and at the end of the...

Camp Hawkeye is a small program in a big world.  I like to think of Hawkeye as "The Little Camp That Could" (like the classic kid's book The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper). With 350 million Americans running around it seems that 200 staff and kids each summer working, playing, learning and growing is less than a drop in the bucket.  However it is nice to know sometimes that the word, and more importantly, the work is reaching farther.  Like the exploratory tendrils from the roots of healthy plant looking to get a deeper, firmer hold the Hawkeye...
