CBH Campers Assist in Breaking a World Record                                         

Camper on egg hunt
Our junior campers, counselor staff, and case managers participated in an egg-dyeing event for the Guinness World Record!  The group, along with hundreds of other area residents, visited Eagle's Nest in Milton, Delaware, for the Guinness-sanctioned, record-setting event.  606 people simultaneously dyed their eggs, breaking the previous record of 317 set in Charleston, SC.

Campers dyed one or more eggs and received a certificate of achievement for their contribution.  The activity prompted much discussion about other kinds of world records and even a few wild suggestions for records to break over the upcoming summer camp season!  Following the egg-dyeing event, campers participated in an egg hunt, face painting, and other group activities. 
Way to go campers!
