Exciting News from Tripp Lake Camp!
November 7, 2017 by Leslie Levy
I want to share some exciting news from Tripp Lake Camp! Progress on our new Art Shops is proceeding at a terrific pace. Pictured here is the current state of the building. The second story is framed, and the roof will be on before the first snow fall. This 8,000 square-foot building will house our ten art programs and will be sure to meet the needs of all our aspiring artists!
At the urging of many of our older campers, we have purchased sixteen spin bikes and added a spinning room in Lower Rainy Day. We are also expanding our land sport clinics for those who want to hone their skills. In addition to the phenomenal soccer training provided in recent years by Mike Turtle from Soccer Specific Training in New Jersey, we will be bringing in top-notch coaches to run clinics in basketball, volleyball, field hockey and lacrosse.
Because many of you have expressed an interest in cooking, we plan to create an industrial kitchen space where our girls can experiment and develop their culinary skills. Yours truly will offer a special session in my areas of expertise– microwaving and scrambling eggs!
Speaking of cooking, I’m sure our girls will agree that our Food Service last summer finished on a high note! We added many more choices to our salad, pasta and alternative bars. Looking ahead, our campers can anticipate an even greater variety of selections next summer.
Finally, as we approach this season of Thanksgiving, I just want to take a moment to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for your continued support. Our parents are an integral part of our TLC family. Your trust and confidence in us help make Tripp Lake Camp the special place it is for so many.
Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving holiday filled with family, friends and laughter!
