Once you walk through the gates of Trail’s End Camp, you become part of the TEC family. Whether you’re getting ready for your first summer at camp or it’s been awhile since your camper days, it’s great to know you can always say “I Am Trail’s End.”
This past Saturday, Trail’s End alumni gathered in New York City for a reunion. Not only did they get a chance to reminisce about their time as campers and their favorite TEC memories, they also raised over $500 for SCOPE (Summer Camp Opportunities Promote Education).
At the reunion we caught up with TEC alum, reunion organizer and new Varsity Head Counselor, Sari Wexler!
What do you miss most about your time as a camper?
Looking back at my time as a camper, the one thing I miss most is constantly being surrounded by some of my favorite people. Waking up at reveille together, cleaning the bunk together, activities together, free play together and so much more. Some of my favorite memories were just during the down time hanging out with my friends!
What message do you have for current campers?
My message to current campers is to live in each moment, be present and don’t be afraid to try new things! Put yourself out there in every way, to make new friends, bond with your old friends and to create new memories at the best place ever, TEC!
How has your time at TEC impacted who you are today?
Trail’s End has impacted my life in a tremendous way. I was fortunate to return to camp as a counselor, group leader and now I will be taking on a new role as a head counselor. Each of my prior roles has shaped me into the person I am today. I learned to be more confident in myself, how to be a team player and most importantly, work to make the camper’s camp experience the best one yet.
Can’t wait to relive your summers at TEC? Be sure to join us for Alumni Day 2018, on August 4th at Trail’s End Camp!
