Spirit & Swag

It’s quiet now at Camp Tall Timbers but, if you listen very closely, the spring breeze ripples the still waters of our private lake, rustles through the trees and dances across the athletic fields, you can imagine the laughter, hear the songs and feel the energy of summer camp at its best.

Our first session is still a few weeks away. Cabins and common spaces are getting prepped, supplies are on order and a great staffing team is being finalized. The excitement is palpable as we anticipate welcoming our first campers of the summer.  Soon Camp Tall Timbers will be full of laughter and song when our campers arrive for what we know will be our best summer ever – Summer 2017!

Camp Tall Timbers has always been a magical summer place where kids thrive and grow. For almost 50 years, campers have been heading to the Blue Ridge Mountains for inspiration to get away from the everyday, try new things, challenge mind and body and make new friends. Camp Tall Timbers has many traditions cultivated over the years that make our campers part of our larger camp community.  We’re all about time-honored values: honesty, friendship, skill-building, respect, teamwork, confidence, creativity and self-discovery. Through songs and cheers, the spirit of Camp Tall Timbers can be felt in every nook and cranny of our 120 acres. Campers feel that spirit every day in all that they do, enhancing the experience and wonder of summer camp and creating fond memories they can hold on to for a lifetime.

To build community, we make announcements at every meal highlighting camper accomplishments. We cheer each other on, offering encouragement and support. We award Golden Feathers for each activity to recognize those campers who show particular effort, improvement or skill throughout the session. Around an evening campfire, while stars twinkle overhead and crickets chirp, we share stories, sing songs and connect with each other. The spirit of Camp Tall Timbers lives in all of us!
