First Year Campers
First year campers at Tyler Hill are a lucky bunch! Tyler Hill is limited in the number of new campers we can take each summer and it is our priority to ensure that our first-year campers are always made to feel special.
Being a first year camper and feeling part of the Tyler Hill Camp family begins LONG before a child’s first actual summer at Tyler Hill.
Tyler Hill hosts several “off-season” get-togethers in New York, New Jersey and Florida for all of our new and returning campers. At these get-togethers, we make sure that that all of our new campers meet and get to know other new campers their age and feel comfortable with our head staff. We fly in all of our head counselors so that the relationships begin to build before the snow even melts.
In addition to the get-togethers throughout the year, we invite all new families to camp for our annual “Open House” in early June. Open House is a chance to re-connect to camp, to the Tyler Hill directors, to our head staff and to other families.
Tyler Hill also has a sizable contingent of campers from south Florida. Our Florida campers fly on chaperoned flights to and from camp. Additionally, Florida campers have their very own THC reunion over the winter in Boca Raton.
