The huts have been open for a few weeks, but now that school is out and the summer solstice has passed, we can officially say summer is here. Crews have settled into their huts, fine tuned their cooking skills, identified the best "krump rocks" and are ready for a busy Independence Day Weekend. Below are some photos showing the beginning our season. If you haven't already been up to a hut this summer, we look forward to seeing you soon.
