Welcome Back to your Home Away from Home!

First Session 2022: June 26th, 2022

We’ve been waiting for you all year and we are so glad you are finally here!

Hi CTT family my name is Jami Siegal and this is my 10th year at camp! I’m a marketing major at the University of Pittsburgh so I will be keeping all you updated on our summer endeavors through blogging and our social media pages!

Today we welcomed our first wave of Tall Timbers campers after an extremely successful week of hosting Camp Oasis with the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation!

After parent drop off and lunch we rotated cabins through a series of activities to introduce campers to the pool, tennis courts, infirmary, and the arts of challenge and archery. However, rain quickly rolled in and those activities changed to arts and crafts, gaga ball, and tennis in the gym. 

During free swim campers finished packing since the weather was not in our favor and then that was followed by a fan favorite dinner of pasta and pizza! Then everyone headed down to the lake for a campfire. We began by singing campfire songs and learning the famous CTT hug and friends song. This was then followed by every cabin having to create a skit including their names and a random object such as a horse shoe, cone, racket, lacrosse stick, etc. Yet, these objects could not be used for their intended use. In the end, it was a tie between Cabin 1 and A and the night ended by toasting marshmallows and eating our delicious smores!

Keep a look out for a ‘Good Morning Tall Timbers’ later this week for video footage of the amazing skits and fire!

Although amid rain we are having an amazing first session so far!

Signing off with a Can do Attitude 🙂
