It is only the second full day here at Camp Tall Timbers, but the energy is high and the memories are being made. Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Alex Fang. I am a senior at the Gilman School in Baltimore, and this is my eighth year at CTT. My favorite thing about the first couple days of camp is the reunions. Friends of all ages come from all over the world to reunite at their favorite place to be: Camp Tall Timbers. Last night, we had our welcome campfire filled with CTT traditions, hilarious skits, and good old-fashioned s’mores.
Today is our first full day of activities and already, memories are being made and bonds are being forged. Juan Antonio Monleon caught one of the first fish of the session. Sydney Laporte and Taylor Kasoff made a mural with their Fruit Loops at breakfast. First-time camper Aaron Morris shot a bow-and-arrow for the first time. Coming all the way from Paris, Samuel Brami and Martin Babinet played Ultimate Frisbee for the first time and they both loved it. Tonight, we test the creativity of our campers with “As Seen on TV Night” where each cabin/tent group gets assigned a popular TV show (Boys Tents has Glee, Cabin B has The Bachelor, etc.) and they have to create a skit using that TV show.
Be sure to “like” the Camp Tall Timbers Facebook page and to follow @camptalltimbers on Twitter so you at home can feel like you are right here at camp. If you have any ideas for the blog, please feel free to contact us here and I will try and get on it. Let’s have a great summer!
