You Are Part of the Tripp Lake Legacy
Welcome TLCers! As we celebrate over 100 years of camping, you are an integral part of Tripp Lake’s rich, enduring tradition and history. It is wonderful to have you join the thousands of Camper Alumnae who have made Tripp Lake Camp such a special place since 1911. “For you girls belong to Tripp Lake and Tripp Lake belongs to you.”
In June 2018, we launched Tripp Lake's new alumnae website, just for former TLC campers! We created accounts for all of our alumnae for whom we have an email address in our records. You may log-in here: Tripp Lake Camp Alumnae
We are looking forward to reconnecting with former campers who have shared in the Tripp Lake experience.
For alumnae myTLC accounts: Login to your existing account, or create a new one, to reconnect with your old camp friends, view photos of Tripp Lake days gone by, stay current with what’s happening at camp, and receive the TLC Times Newsletter.
If you’re ever in the area, please come for a visit.
Prospective Campers: Please visit Tripp Lake Camp with your daughters, granddaughters and their friends. We would love for your daughters to have the opportunity to share in the Tripp Lake experience with you and to create their own wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. We hope you will make an appointment to visit camp this summer. We look forward to your visit. Schedule a tour here.
I found out in December that I was accepted to Dartmouth Early Decision for next year!! I think camp really influenced my college decision; when I visited this fall I stayed with Sam and Annabel and met Kimi for ice cream to talk about the school, and all of them said that Dartmouth reminded them a lot of camp. Throughout the entire college process, my parents constantly reminded me that they wanted me to find a place just like camp. I can't wait next year to return to the Maine/New Hampshire area that I fell in love with 9 years ago, and it comforts me to know that the Tripp Lakers at Dartmouth will be there for me next year. The TLC community stretches far beyond the bounds of Poland, Maine, and for that I am very grateful!

TLC Traditional Songs
Bring back memories from your days at camp with these favorite songs!
Far above dear Tripp Lake's waters,
With its waves of blue,
Stands a camp we all love dearly,
Glorious to view.
Lift the Chorus, speed it onward,
Loud our praises make,
Hail to Thee! Our Tripp Lake Camp,
Hail all hail! Tripp Lake!
Here's to Cyd-Eva, we hail thee in accents high
We've learned to love you and Tripp Lake,
We'll never say goodbye.
In each endeavor we'll follow you
We'll help in all that you do
So here's a song to Cyd-Eva a toast to you.
Sparkling waters of jade and blue
Shimmer on yet touched by the sun,
Towering pines reaching toward the sky,
Echo out the songs we have sung.
Here we have lived,
Warmed by a love so true,
We shall not stray,
Though we may part tomorrow.
Though the past fades with memories,
Still the things we've shared linger on.
Golden moments you've brought to us,
Kittie-Car to you our song.
To you we sing of our love for Tripp Lake
For you're a part of that.
Your smiling eyes hold the warmth of friendship
That's known to every heart.
Time holds a special meaning as we share each precious day.
Camp has a way of giving a moment to friends.
Our memories last through the years unending
Of joys we've shared with you
And as we sing of our love for Tripp Lake
We sing, Aunt Ruth, to you.
Spirit of Tripp Lake young but old,
To thee before we leave and part,
We pledge to cherish and to hold
Thy creed of open mind and heart.
Tripp Lake Spirit stay with us yet
Lest we forget, lest we forget.
We who in thee have put our trust (have put our trust),
Will never fail to follow through (to follow through)
Though struggle valiantly we must
Though years be many or be few (or be few)
Tripp Lake Spirit be with us yet
Lest we forget, lest we forget, forget.
Come autumn nights and winter days,
On beach and campus snow will fall,
Southward the birds will wing their ways,
So come what may we'll heed your call
Tripp Lake Spirit come to us yet
Lest we forget, lest we forget, forget.
Our cheering and our singing fade (our singing fade)
Soon fun and work will mem'ries be (will mem'ries be)
But when our last games have been played
We'll still stay true to TLC (to TLC).
Still owing thee a life long debt
Ne'er to forget, Ne'er to forget, forget.
And now dear friends both old and new
Time grows short the end is near
When summer's curtain falls for you
Let's say goodbye without a tear
But only joys that we have met
Ne'er to forget, Ne'er to forget Tripp Lake.
