Happy New Year from YOU summer camp. We hope that you have all had a very happy holiday season. We are sending our best wishes too for a happy and healthy 2018!
Tanamakoon continues to work very hard at offering the quality experiences that each of us had at Tanamakoon. As campers and staff, we gained lifelong skills and became confident women. We made lifelong friends. We did things we could not learn or do anywhere else. We had fun.
If these and so many other wonderful outcomes of summer camp are so evident then why has the summer camp experience slipped in its priority ranking with today’s parents? The question is a difficult one, and there is no easy answer. Demographics, changing priorities, many more program choices, last minute decision makers, the “helicopter, and snow plow parents” to name a few all result in the inability of today’s parent to prioritize the gift of camp for their child. Although we are almost filled for 2018 we feel it’s important to continue to be proactive regarding the value of the camp experience.
This is where all of you come in. We would love your help. This year we are in an unusual situation due to our two-week tripping program. We have 3 two-week trips all going in the first two weeks of August which leaves all those spots empty in camp! All other sessions are now filled for 2018. The only places we have yet to fill are for the two-week period
July 30-August 13 and a few places for June Kindercamp.
We would love it if you could spread the word to friends, & co-workers that may have daughters of camp age. Put them on to our website or give them our contact information. We don’t have a lot of space, but we do have places to fill in A 1 ½ and June Kindercamp.
Feel free to email or post spaces
Many thanks to all of you, we value your ongoing support of your camp! We encourage you to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter. There are many opportunities for you to still be involved in your camp. We are always grateful to Alums that return to volunteer in our June and late August Kindercamp or in our Spring and Fall OED programs. It is a wonderful way to give back to your camp and to pay it forward to future generations of campers. Just email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 905-338-9464. We also respond to Facebook messaging 😊
Our Spring Luncheon is Sunday, April 15th and we encourage Alums to come help. Our present parents love to talk to adults who have been at Tanamakoon. The Alums are integral to the smooth operation of that event. Again-contact us, and we will be happy to accept your help!
Our best to you and your families from all of us at Tanamakoon
Kim, Marilyn and Patti
