    ping pongLooking to give camp a birthday present? Check out our 70th Birthday Wishlist  and have a direct impact on the experience of a camper! With a growing number of campers, returning and new, we are so excited to expand some of our most popular activities, and enhance the existing favorites. Gifts to  camp like stand-up paddle boards or outdoor ping pong tables, are visible and exciting contributions to our camp community. Helping us purchase some of the more essential items like sports equipment, allows us flexibility to concentrate more of our funding on camp scholarships and infrastructure improvements.

    Check out three of the alumni-sponsored gifts camp received last year…

    adirondack 2

    Camp is about connection. For our campers, staff and visitors we feel that it’s important you feel the warmth of CTN, whether you are a camper staying for the full summer or a future family seeing camp for the first time.  Last year, a generous alumni sponsored a “first impressions” project that allowed us to make very necessary changes to our office, as well as the addition to an adirondack seating area in the grass outside of the office. This space very quickly became the heart of camp. Families were greeted with a friendly smile from our office staff in our renovated space and campers had a great place to meet, unwind and enjoy each other.

    goproSince launching in 2013, videography has become one of the most popular electives for our campers…and our parents love the opportunity to have that window into the action at camp through the camper-created videos that we post. Our camp family benefited from the donation of a GoPro camera this past summer by the grandmother of current campers and staff. Additions to our inventory such as this one provided our campers with the necessary resources that they needed and the foundation for learning.

    bball hoops

    Another awesome enhancement last year was the replacement of our very old, very outdated basketball hoops on our main court. A hub of activity at any time of day, the court was definitely in need of a face lift, and with the help of a very dedicated group of alumni, who had grown up together on the same court, we were able to install state-of-the-art hoop systems. Now we can look and play our best on gamedays and during our basketball tournaments!

    Big or small, fun or necessity…help Camp Tel Noar be it’s absolute best! Give camp a gift in honor of a favorite counselor, or sponsor something as an age-group and leave your mark on CTN!
