Summers Are Magical at Tall Pines Day Camp
In those lazy days of summer that make us long to be kids again. Who can forget bounding out of bed on the first day of vacation, anxious to play? Problem was, most of us ran through the sprinkler, sold some lemonade and then resorted to whining long before lunchtime. Familiar strains of “there’s nothing to do” could be heard all day. Today’s moms have it better than ours did. Now, there’s Tall Pines Day Camp to keep the kids occupied. Your kids are guaranteed to be busy making friends and trying new activities that they’ll forget to complain.
The camp opened in 1996, and has been filled to capacity every year. Campers have had such a good time it has a history of filling up fast. Those lucky enough to snag a spot will be picked up and dropped of at their doors in air-conditioned vehicles. The campers love that there are twelve different choices for lunch and a snack as well. Our facility is peanut aware. Children ages 3-14 can attend from three to eight weeks. There is also a half-day program for 3-4 year olds.
Campers are grouped by age and gender and are closely supervised. Junior Camp, ages 3 – 6, are placed in small groups and led through pre-set activities. Middle Campers, 7-9, and Senior Campers, 10-12, participate in an elective program in addition to their regular schedule. Our Counselor-In-Training (CIT) Program, ages 13-14, have the best of both worlds, since they get to be campers half the day and train for staff positions the other half. They also go on weekly trips to places like Great Adventure and Dorney Park. As an option, the CITs can travel with our Teens on Wheels Program. CITs can become staffers after finishing ninth grade.
There is something for everyone at Tall Pines. Activities run the gamut from sports, crafts and performing and music arts. Over 800 campers participate in horseback riding, swim lessons, nature, and X-Box game room. NEW this year 50 Ft high zip tower with twin 700 ft. twin zip lines and of course our favorite Gaga!
