Camp Reviews — Memories from Real Camp Families

|If only I could go back and enjoy another summer at TLC. The late 50s and early 60s was a magical time to be at TLC. Enjoying a wonderful summer in Maine instead of a hot, humid summer in Houston was a fantastic gift. I will forever be grateful to my parents for giving me that opportunity. Making friends from all over the country was an experience that enriched my life and formative years. Young ladies, consider your self lucky to enjoy this privilege. You will have wonderful memories for many years to come.
|I was a camper at Tripp for six summers and now my oldest daughter is enjoying her second summer at TLC. It is such a gift to be able to share this experience with my daughter and know that all of the traditions I experienced during my childhood summers are the same ones she is experiencing today. Singing camp songs, screaming out cheers, talking about Olympia, KP, Team Feast, Sing Song and Friday Night Services have strengthened our bond and created a sense of sisterhood that goes beyond the mother-daughter relationship. I can't wait until my two younger daughters get to experience summers at TLC with their big sister. Tripp provides the perfect environment to create lasting and meaningful friendships, to gain independence and learn how to work together as a group and to find your true self. I am so thankful for my experience as a camper and am thrilled to be able to provide this opportunity for my girls. There is no place like TLC!
|Visiting with my Mother and my daughter. My mother attended in the 1940s, and it was very special having her point out her favorite places at TLC to my daughter, who is currently attending.
|When I went to camp in Maine, I got the opportunity to try different sports and activities that I never would have experienced otherwise. I even learned how to horseback ride and jump!!
|Tripp Lake has been the best thing my parents have ever given me. TLC has shaped me into the person I am today. I cannot imagine my life without my best friends that I have met from camp. No matter how far away we live from each other, Tripp Lake Camp has brought us together and forever we will be. The lessons that I have learned will help in my future life. I am confident to say that without camp, I cannot even picture the person I would be. It is a magical place and it is truly the promise land. I feeling I get when I first step off the bus on the first day and indescribable. Tripp Lake Camp is the most amazing place in the world and I know that all campers truly think it is their "home."
|After spending my summers as a camper at Tripp Lake, I was so excited to bring my daughter up to visit Tripp the summer before she was to attend. When we arrived, I walked into The Promised Land and it felt like a dream. It was magical! All of my long ago memories flooded my mind and warmed my heart. I cried just to be there again. Now it is years later and my daughter has aged out of camp. On our last visiting day up at Tripp, we sat under the trees together overlooking the beautiful grounds, the tennis couts, the stables, the basketball courts and most importantly the lake. We both cried. My daughter would be saying goodbye to camp in only a few weeks and I was having to say goodbye to camp all over again, that day. Now, 2 years later, we talk and dream about our next generation that will have the opportunity to experience the best summers ever. To make the best friends a girl could ever dream of, to have the ability to realize potentials that were never known, to be able to overcome challenges and have a confidence instilled that could never exist without camp....it's all priceless. The next best thing to being up in Maine at camp yourself is to be able to send your child up to camp in Maine. I thank my lucky stars every day that I have 2 sons still enjoying the best summers of their lives up in Maine. I'm able to continue living the dream vicariously - I still get to visit every summer!
