Tawingo Talkback!

" I just wanted to tell you, that despite the pouring rain on Saturday, we
were very pleased we made the 7 hour round trip to visit our grandson at
Camp.

We walked away very impressed and envious that we didn't get the opportunity
to experience Summer Camp ourselves.   The last time we visited Tawingo was
28 years ago when our daughter attended Tawingo.  She never forgot the two
summers she spend there and was determined that her son would experience
many years of the Tawingo tradition.   At ten years old, this is now his
third year and we expect him to continue to enjoy summer camp for many years
to come.   

From the time we arrived your friendly Counsellors helped with parking; the
check-in process was pleasant and efficient and we were very pleased to
meeting Aidan's Counsellor, Robertson, in Cabin No. 6.  Everything was
ship-shape and Aidan was brimming with confidence and talked non-stop took
about his experiences as he insisted on taking us on a tour of the camp in
the rain.  From the waterfront, to the dining hall, along to "Swamp" cabin,
to where the tribal counsel takes place, he waved at Counsellors along the
way and seems to have absorb and embrace the values, the traditions, and the
rituals of camp life.   A refreshing break from computers/ digital media, et
al!  

We have heard that "Tawingo wrote the book about how to run a Summer Camp"
- We believe it.  Keep doing what you are doing.  
A very sincerely thank you. "
