Camp . . . an adventurous way for kids to meet their goals!!

Not too late to make good on New Year’s Resolutions!

At the closing of another year, we had the opportunity to ask campers and staff what gets them excited for Summer 2021 and to share some goals they have set for themselves to make it the best summer yet! Among the top resolutions that are made at the start of each New Year, some of the most common goals can be met while having an AMAZING experience at Towering Pines:

Eat Healthy: Instead of serving processed food, we provide meals made from “scratch” using the freshest ingredients. No powdered eggs here!

Get Moving: Being a fixture on the couch is not an option during a TP summer. All of us are active at camp and get plenty of exercise in the great outdoors. We use our feet to take us just about everywhere we need to go!

Reduce Stress: Camp is a great way to “unplug” from the constant “noise” of text messages, emails, and other social media. It is also a time to put the pressures of school and grades aside and just enjoy living in the moment. Above all, camp is FUN!!

Try Something New: With a variety of physical, recreational, and creative activities to choose from, campers have the opportunity to explore a wide range of interests. Who knows what spark will ignite and become a lifelong career or hobby?!


George M (age 13): getting on the wall  (Cabin 7 — Iroquois)

Angie Z (staff): playing ukulele more

Bryce B. (age 17): I definitely need my gold archer (Cabin 12 — Apache)

Henry M. (age 15): get my golden archer  (Cabin 11 — Seneca)

Thomas K. (age 14): pass kneeling in riflery  (Cabin 7 — Iroquois)



Spend More Time With Friends: Imagine spending 24 hours a day each week with a group of your closest friends…how AWESOME is that?! We believe in true “face time” versus “screen time”!

Get Along With Siblings: Towering Pines and Woodland are the summer home for many brothers and sisters. The older campers typically take responsibility and look out for the younger ones and the “fighting” often seen at home vanishes for a few weeks. Siblings actually look forward to seeing one another on occasion when sharing a common camp experience!





New Year’s Resolution:

Enroll your child at Camp Towering Pines for 2021…we are VERY EXCITED about the upcoming summer!
