Part of a Whole

Posted by on July 18, 2012

Tuesday, July 17th(Posted by Jonathan) We’re stepping boldly into the fourth week of camp and spirits are high! Whether it’s at a special event like Paul Bunyan Day or waking up early for Senior Horse Show practice and cavalry charges across the athletic field, our boys are really showing their stuff every day! When campers have the perspective of the first half of  summer to behind them, they can really be assertive and comfortable in their decisions. It’s that point […]

7/15 Paul Bunyan Day!

Posted by on July 15, 2012

(Posted by Joe Fitzsimmons) Paul Bunyan Day kicked off with another delicious pancake/sausage breakfast cooked by the CITs.  I love the thin/crispy pancakes and the sausages covered in maple syrup!!  Afterwards, the campers headed to Vespers where Jeff and Jon strummed “Put it There” and “Let it Be” while Cabin 8 shared their thoughts about “Honesty” and the importance of it at camp and in life in general.  I like the fact that I get to see and hear the […]

(Posted by Joe Fitzsimmons) It was awesome seeing so many alumni come back and participate in activities.  The campers really enjoyed getting to know them and to hear stories from the past.  Erik Leander was given the “Alumni Rider of the Week” award for his 2 periods of riding with Win and Jerry, which he absolutely loved.  It’s always great to have Win here for any amount of time!  And welcome back Alejandro Kunhardt after 17 years!! That was really […]

The 13 years old and under game started a bit after 7pm and had a great turn out of fans! This is our alumni weekend here at Camp Towering Pines, as many of you know, and there were plenty of old-timers there cheering along with the current generation of TP men. The […]

Gold Rushin’

Posted by on July 10, 2012

Monday, July 9th (Chief of the day: James E.) (Posted by Jonathan) Yesterday was our annual Gold Rush event and everyone was in fine spirits. Each cabin group comes together as a team to search for gold, stake their claim, and buy clues that lead them to the mother-load! Many of the Sunday special events divide the cabin group into teams to facilitate small team building. Gold Rush really unifies the cabin to work for a common goal and allows […]
