BEST DAY CAMP IN THE TRI STATE AREA! This camp has been my summer home for over 10 years now. There is no place that I would rather see kids during the summer than at this friendly, safe and incredible camp. There are activities for every kid, no matter if you like sports or not. Any parent or camper who does not like this camp must be out of their mind. The only thing that they could be upset about is that their kid has more fun at camp than at home. Being a Tall Pines counselor now, I have seen the camp from a camper’s view, and a counselor’s view. Let me assure you that there is no camp better or more enjoyable than Tall Pines Day Camp!

Over the last three summers, I have been a camp counselor at Tall Pines Day Camp. Tall Pines provides campers with unique opportunities including swimming, zip lining, dancing, sports, pottery etc. At Tall Pines, I learned that you can do more than you think you are capable of. Everyone has something they are truly good at and Tall Pines finds that in you.

Tall Pines is truly where i grew up and became an adult. You allowed me to find my fit and I owe you a ton for that. I value each and every summer I have been there and look forward to many more with all my kids. All year I am busy raising other people’s kids and during the summers, camp has allowed me to help raise my own, something I treasure each of my 8 weeks every summer.

As for my kids … Tall Pines has helped my son become the rock star he has become because of all the support and confidence everyone has given him. My daughter has become more outgoing. I can only imagine what TPDC can do for third child.

Just think what one little tear off piece of paper I found in the Student Center at Rowan 16 plus years ago would lead to me having a second family to come back to each year! Thanks for EVERYTHING!!!

Once a camper at this facility; then an employee. This is a wonderful summer opportunity for people who are interested in working with children. It is enjoyable and rewarding at the same time.

I just wanted to reach out and thank you for giving my daughter the opportunity to work as a Junior Counselor. Since day one, she was amazed and impressed with the friendly atmosphere, wealth of fun activities, and overall organization of the camp. She is so happy to have the group of girls which is the perfect fit for her. Understanding that Tall Pines typically hires most counselors who were former campers, I thank you again for giving her this wonderful experience. Her summer has been great so far.

I just wanted to take this time to let you know how excited my son is for camp! We had a wonderful time at Spring Fling. Everything was perfect and he enjoyed it all…especially the zip line!  As a mom, I am so thrilled to have him become part of the Tall Pines family. As a new employee, I am proud to be a part of it all. I am so impressed with everything I have seen and know it will be an amazing summer for us both.

I wanted to personally thank you for EVERYTHING. I can’t thank you enough for giving me the opportunity to work at your camp this summer. I met some of the best people and friends that will be with me for a life time. You have turned that camp into something special and a great work environment for your staffers. Thank you so much for welcoming me into the TP family. From day one, I have felt like part of the gang! I had one hell of a time last summer and have you and the rest of the staff to thank for that. It was such an amazing experience that will stick with me for a life time. I had never worked at a day camp before but you gave me a chance and for that I am eternally grateful. You are one of the best bosses I have ever had. I enjoyed working for you, Barb and Buffy; you’re all amazing people!

Thank you for the amazing opportunity to work at such a great camp with fabulous people. I’m so thankful for the experience; it was truly the best summer.  All the directors at Tall Pines work so hard to make sure the campers have a blast and I can honestly say, once again, your mission has been accomplished.

I’ve been a part of TPDC family for 12 years. I have seen this camp grow into an educational body with lots of fun things to do. It is one of the finest camps I have had the pleasure to be part of it. They treat the staff like family not just employees. They treat the campers of all ages with the utmost respect in every way. Tall Pines is one of the best camps in the Philadelphia and NJ area. Everyone loves Tall Pines!!
