Bringing Camp Energy to Local School
The TLC Family of Camps have been proud participants of the Mentoring Partnership of Long Island for the past 5 years. Dedicated to our camp organization’s mission of building self-esteem and self-confidence, more than 15 members of our full-time team travel to the Gribben Elementary School in Glen Cove twice a month to run programs for “at-risk” children.
This past week, students got to make a holiday garland of wishes, where they got to write their wishes for the New Year on snowflakes, candy canes and gingerbread men. Whether it’s teaching a cooking class, running team-building games, or just spending quality one-on-one time with the ‘mentees’, every mentoring program is intentionally designed to inject some “camp” energy into our local elementary school.
