My name is Jeremy – I’m on the left wearing the red jersey. I’m 11 years old and I have a younger brother named Ben. We live in Roslyn, NY with our parents and we also have a dog named Duke. I am in the 5th grade and will be starting middle school next year (I’m really excited about that!)
Looking for the perfect summer camp for your child? We know that camp is more than just a nice website with some pretty pictures and a video, and the best way to be sure you’re going to get the sleep away camp experience you’re looking for is to see it in action! To that end, we created our Rookie Day program to give prospective campers and parents the opportunity to come and experience a day at TLC first hand.
Sydney is currently a 2nd grader and lives in Upper Saddle River, NJ. But in just 2 short months, she will be moving to Mahwah, NJ. She has 4 brothers, (Justin, Brody, Ryan & Cole) and is the youngest – and only girl! Sydney also has 4 dogs (It’s a very busy house!) Continue reading
The TLC Foundation for Children (supported by Timber Lake, along with our sister camps Timber Lake West, Tyler Hill Camp, North Shore Day Camp & School, Hampton Country Day Camp, Southampton Racquet Club & Camp, its full-time employees and the Jacobs Family) is dedicated to promoting the health, education, welfare and betterment of children throughout the world.
We’re gearing up for camp this summer, and having just spent an amazing day this past weekend with some of our youngest campers, it’s even more difficult for us to hold in our excitement!!! Freshmen and Cadets campers, both new and returning, reunited at Hoop Starz in Mahwah, New Jersey for fun & games!
Everyone got a chance to participate in multiple different fun games and activities. Games included basketball, dodge ball, soccer, and knock-out, working up an appetite that couldn’t be ignored! So we topped off the activities with some delicious pizza, pasta, chips and salad!
Hi! My name is Morgan. I am from Roslyn, NY. I have a dog named Tucker and he is one year old. I have two siblings, Hailey and Dylan. Dylan is older than me. He is 11 years old and Hailey is younger than me. She is 6 years old. I also have two fish!
I am in 4th grade and my brother Dylan goes to Timber Lake Camp so I followed right in his footsteps and went to TLC too. Seeing what a great time he was having, I couldn’t wait until it was my turn. This coming summer, summer 2013, will be my second year at camp where I’ll be a Cadet.
For many of us in the camp community, the Tri-State Camp Conference is the big event that signals that camp is right around the corner. It’s an opportunity to meet and share information and trends that we are seeing for the upcoming summer and always encourages each of us as camp professionals to learn together and broaden our skills.
The conference had over 150 educational sessions with something for everyone: owners, directors, head counselors, program heads, support staff, volunteers, board members, as well as teachers, after-school programmers and other youth development professionals.
It’s hard to believe that when Justin Mayer (bottom right, 2nd from end) started at TLC as a camper back in 1988, he was one of the most homesick kids in camp, even hiding under his parents’ car on Visiting Day so they couldn’t leave without him! Nowadays, along with his wife Cassie, Justin is a Director of our sister camp, Timber Lake West.
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. As a camper, Justin rose through the ranks from a Cadet up to his Teen summer in 1994. In 1995 Justin worked in the dining hall, then became a counselor the following summer, moved up to Group Leader the following summer and became the Assistant Program Director by summer 2000.
Justin tells us the rest of the story: Continue reading
