Alumni Spotlight


I love when people do cool stuff!!  And while a delicious panini from a new New York City hot spot is what has inspired me to write this blog, the “meat” (if you will) of this story is about relationships formed over the years at Tyler Hill! Continue reading

My THC Story – Alexa Moss

THC 2013 6.30 THC Cheerleaders 4Around this time, nearly 11 years ago, I was beginning to prepare for the newest adventure in my life. After visiting only a few camps, my parents and I easily chose Tyler Hill.

Family Connect – Play It Forward

Play It Forward

Play It Forward is a non-profit organization with the mission of helping musicians make the world a better place. This charity was recently founded by Steve Mazza, a longtime Counselor and Division Leader at Hampton Country Day Camp.

Steve founded Play It Forward to serve as a web-based platform where musicians could sell their albums in exchange for charitable donations to non-profit organizations of their choice. Currently, musicians featured on the site are raising money for the Leukemia Research Foundation, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Feed the Children, among others.

We are excited to announce that TLC will be releasing an album of music written and recorded by ALL OF YOU! We are calling on all of our musically gifted parents, campers, and staff (past and present) to contribute original songs that they have written and recorded.  Eligible songs may be previously recorded or can be written specifically for this project. Professional production is not a requirement.

Once we receive all of the submissions, we will compile them into a TLC Family of Camps album. Proceeds from the album will be donated to SCOPE, a nonprofit that gives the gift of summer camp to children from low-income families at ACA-accredited sleepaway camps, in celebration of its 25th Anniversary.

If you are interested in contributing a song, please e-mail Steve at And stay tuned – we will let you know as soon as the album is available for purchase/donation!

My Story: Rebecca “Frankie” Frank


In the summer of 1998, each weekend I traveled camp to camp with my family to find a sleep away camp for my brother to attend the following summer. I was jealous immediately, as I was still attending a day camp near home, but hoped that someday one of these camps would be my summer home. Continue reading

Family Connect – Regents Review

Regents Review - 2

Tyler Hill Camp parents, Michelle and Harris Zakarin, have been sending their children to camp for years. But before the fun and excitement of each summer, the Zakarins are busy with a business they have built that alleviates the stress and anxiety of end-of-year exams.

Through their test-prep company, Regents Review,  Michelle and Harris have been helping middle school and high school students excel on Regents, AP’s, and SAT II subject exams for decades – so that children can head off to camp with the peace of mind and confidence that they aced their final exams.

All of their courses are taught by top-tier teachers who are licensed, experienced experts in the subjects they teach. Their unique course offerings provide a complete review of the material, and students receive comprehensive instruction, practice exam-style questions, and time tested tips, strategies, and mnemonics, to maximize their study time and efforts and ensure test day success.

Regents Review offers classes in Long Island, Westchester, Manhattan and Rockland County. For more information and to access their schedule of classes, feel free to visit their website or call (631) 491-0075.

Best of luck to everyone starting their spring semester – and remember, that light you see at the end of the tunnel . . . IS CAMP!!!

A Full Weekend of THC Fun!


Snow, freezing temperatures and the doldrums of winter couldn’t keep Tyler Hill campers from being together this past weekend!

On Saturday night in New York City, 80 Tyler Hill teens and CIT’s took over the private back room in one of Murray Hill’s coolest restaurants!  Our 2016 teens and CIT’s laughed and reminisced and got each other psyched for the upcoming summer at camp!  And just because the reunion was held in New York City doesn’t mean that it was just for northerners — some special CIT girls flew all the way up from Florida to be with us!!  We loved seeing everyone and can’t wait for these two oldest groups of campers to rule Tyler Hill this summer!

image1And if that wasn’t enough for one weekend, we then held our first-ever Tyler Hill Tennis Party on Sunday morning at Sportime in Bethpage, NY.  More than 60 kids joined us for a fun morning of tennis drills, games, fun and blue and white bagels (thanks to Bagel Master in Syosset!).   Tyler Hill’s own Scott Segal organized an incredible event and we were so excited to be joined by campers of all ages and from all over the Tri-State area!

Now the countdown begins until our THC reunion in Florida, where the temperature will be a little warmer and the sun a little brighter!!!

My THC Story: Ste & Nicole


“My name is Ste Lane and this will be my 7th summer at the hill”.

My first summer was 2010 and I was going in blind. I didn’t know what the summer held for an English guy taking on his first ever summer camp role as a waterski instructor. Let me tell you, I had no idea how much this place was going to change my life. Continue reading
