The Mullens Make it a Family Affair at TEC

Family Affair, Trail's End Camp - Summer Camp 2015

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Just 169 days till Opening Campfire 2014.

Last June, Harrison Mullen came up to camp from Florida for his first TEC summer as an Upper Ranger. He had an amazing time and this summer, his mom Shari, his sister, Victoria, and his brother, Samuel, will be coming to camp too – making it a true family affair!  We are very excited that Shari will be joining us as our new Tennis Director.

We recently spoke with the Mullen kids. We asked Harrison, Victoria and Samuel (pictured above) some questions about camp and their thoughts on the upcoming summer:

My name is Harrison Mullen, but my good friends call me Harry. This is my 2nd summer at Trail’s End Camp. I was born in Los Angeles, California (Go Lakers!) and moved to Delray Beach, Florida when I was a baby.  I attend Pine Crest School here in Florida. My favorite thing to do in my free time is play lacrosse.  I have played on many travel lacrosse teams, but right now I play for the South Florida Swordfish.  This fall we placed 2nd in the State!

I am so excited that my mom and little brother, Sam, and little sister, Victoria, will be at Trail’s End this summer because I will have them to sit with at the sibling lunch.  I think Sam will really like playing Taps and Victoria will like singing at the camper talent show.  My mom is going to love being the Tennis Director at TEC because all of the campers and counselors are really nice.  She has played tennis since she was younger than me and loves to play and have fun!   I can’t wait to experience the awesomeness of Trail’s End with my family. Trail’s End 2014 will be the best summer of my life! Below are some fun facts about me and my siblings coming to camp for the first time this summer!Family Affair - Trail's End Camp - Summer Camp 2 Hours From NYC

Favorite Quote: “How hard would you play today, if you knew you could not play tomorrow?”
How did you know Trail’s End was the right camp for you:  I didn’t go and visit any camps because I live in Florida.  So I watched a lot of camp videos and decided on TEC. The TEC video was so amazing. That mixed with the people I know from Florida that go to TEC and a home visit from Marc, made me choose Trail’s End. I am so HAPPY I did!
