Towering Pines Camper Reunion – A great time with Old Friends

Posted by on December 11, 2012

The Towering Pines gang had a great time at the annual camper reunion at Jeff’s house in Northbrook, Il.  Everyone had a great time hanging out, playing camp games, and flipping through the 2012 Camp Scrapbook. We had over 16 campers, 6 staff, and a handful of Alumni.

We had a little surprise for them as well.  We unveiled our new Towering Pines Promotional Video.  The boys were excited to see themselves on TV and be the stars of the camp!
