Every fall, we count down the days till our camp family is able to get together for our annual TEC Bowling Reunions, and this year was no different.
The weekend started off on Saturday as we spent the afternoon with our current 6th – 11th graders at Bowlmor. It was a great reunion for our older campers as they hung out with their friends, had pizza & sliders and premiered our 2014 video yearbook. We loved being able to get back to that camp feeling that we have been missing all fall. It was also so much fun to watch everyone reconnect and to see how excited they were to see some of their favorite staff members. TEC Group Leaders and Head Counselors flew in from all over the US to spend the weekend with their summer family.
On Sunday, it was our 1st – 5th grade campers’ turn to reunite and make some new friends during their bowling get-togethers at Syosset Lanes. The turnout was awesome and we were so happy to see how welcoming our returning campers were to the many 1st time Trail’s Enders. After some bowling and icebreakers, the reunions ended with Marc handing out raffle prizes to the lucky winners which included a golf cart ride for your bunk, the counselors having to do clean up, bunk milkshake parties and pizza parties for the entire group, to name a few.
Having spent an incredible weekend with everyone has put us into full-on camp mode. We in the process of finalizing most of the program for 2015 and will be sure to share some of the highlights with you in January. It is have to believe that we are less than 200 days away from Opening Campfire.
Wishing you and your family a Happy Holidays. Be sure to keep your eyes open for the video yearbook which coming to your mailbox over the next few days.
We love seeing photos of our TEC camp families reuniting throughout the fall, winter and spring. There is no better feeling than reconnecting and catching up with everyone.
On Saturday December 7th, we spent the afternoon with our current 6th-11th graders at Bowlmor in Melville, NY. It was great to watch our campers spend time with their favorite staff member as well as each other. Seeing everyone stop what they were doing, sit on the lanes together and watch the premiere of our 2013 Yearbook Video was incredible and heartwarming. To say we all live “10 months for 2,” would be a huge understatement.
On Sunday December 8th, we spent the entire day at Syosset Lanes, hosting campers from 2nd-5th grade. We love showcasing our staff and getting a chance to meet all of our new camp families, while reconnecting with old friends. There is nothing as special as watching our new campers smile all day long as they make new friends and start thinking about their upcoming summer adventure. This is always one of our favorite days of the year.
Even though the holiday season is upon us, we are more excited that there are less than 200 days until we are back at TEC, as a family, at our summer home in 18405!
