Program: Schedule 2016

Hey Days 2016 will open at 5:00 pm on Saturday July 30, 2106. Dinner will be served that evening and will be followed by a dance. The week will close at 10:00 am, after breakfast on Saturday, August 6.

If you like to dance, sing, play music, take workshops, and party all day long and into the wee hours, the schedule provides that opportunity. You may also choose to take time off to visit with friends, relax in the sun, swim in the pool, or peruse the well-stocked bookstore. Either way, take this opportunity to try something new!
