I am in 6th grade and I play Roslyn Booster basketball and tennis. I take dance class with a group of friends and I love tennis, basketball, and just being with my friends. My favorite trips that I’ve been on so far were going to Lake George and to Aruba.

My parents are  friends with Andy and Wendy, so I had a chance to go to “Rookie Day” and loved the camp! THC was the obvious choice for me from that moment on… I have been at Tyler Hill for 3 years and I will be a Junior this summer. I love all the activities, being with my friends, Color War and camp spirit. My favorite activity is BBK (basketball, baseball and kickball.) I love all of the Juniors 2013 (Especially Bunk 12!!!!)

I have many favorite memories of camp. Some of my favorites are winning my first STARFISH award for “Tolerance,” all the Color War breakouts, (Shhhhh – raids) and many other fun memories. Being with my camp friends is extra special because I don’t get to see them all the time, especially the ones who live in Florida. We share so many fun memories living with each other over the summer that the experience brings us so close.

Meet Jake:
Favorite Board Game: Monopoly
Favorite Video Game: NBA 2K13
Favorite Sport: Basketball

I am in 3rd grade and I play travel baseball and basketball. I also play in a flag football league in the fall and lacrosse in the spring.  Basically, I just really love sports! My favorite teams are the NY Knicks, Jets and Yankees. I like watching movies and playing video games. My favorite place I’ve traveled to was when my whole family took a family vacation to Mexico.

My sister Julia loves THC so much. I had so much fun on Visiting Day when I would go visit her over the summer, that I just couldn’t wait to go too! Last year was my first year at Tyler Hill and I honestly can’t wait to go back this summer. I loved making new friends and being with my counselors. My favorite activities are water skiing and swing. My favorite tournament at camp is baseball. My favorite memory was Color War Breakout from this past summer.  I really liked it when everyone fell onto the cake. (Speed up to 7:00 towards the end of the clip!) I thought it was hilarious and still laugh when I think about it!!!
