Rookie Days at TLC!

This past Saturday was Timber Lake’s first Rookie Day for summer 2010! Rookie Day is a day when potential campers (“Rookies”) and their parents come to Timber Lake while camp is in session to experience what we’re all about. It’s kind of like a test drive for next summer – a way for parents & campers to get to know us better, while taking part in lots of awesome camp activities! After spending just 1 day with us, many of our Rookie Day families enroll for the following summer as official TLC campers.

Our first Rookie Day took place this past Saturday, with our Rookies spending three periods in the morning doing activities with campers their own age. They did everything from swimming, basketball, golf, tennis, dancing and scaling the rock-climbing wall, to playing wacky relays, having an ice cream party, making door hangers & scratch art in the art shack! Rookies also took a tour around camp and enjoyed sharing lunch and snack with some campers their own age! So now, when they arrive off the buses next summer, they’ll know exactly where everything is!

While the Rookies were having fun with their new friends, Jay and Mindy met with parents and shared the TLC philosophy and some important “insider information” about Timber Lake. They also went on a parent tour of our facilities – everything from the bunks, to our pools & waterfront, courts, sports fields, baseball stadium, Timber Dome, golf course, TLC Playhouse and the canteen… the whole nine yards!

After having an awesome time, Rookies & their parents were reunited to recount all the fun experiences from the day, and soon after they headed home, counting down the days until the buses roll in to TLC next summer! Timber Lake Camp is the place to be, and having a taste of what a summer could be like during Rookie Day is the best way to find out!

Interested in joining us for one of our two remaining Rookie Days or taking a tour of camp? It’s not too late to register or to schedule a tour – but hurry, space is limited! Contact our Tour Coordinator, Tina at (845) 688-2266 or for more information.
