 12/11/13   5     5     5     5     5   I was a first time parent sending my daughter to camp for the first time. I was nervous and scared but Tripp Lake was a fantastic choice. As soon as we arrived the staff and counselors made me daughter feel welcome and at home. Shelby came home with stories that she is still telling today. Tripp Lake does a lot of community service project and now during the winter Shelby volunteers at our local children's hospital. The skills and life lessons she has learned from being at camp for one year has been delightfully overwhelming. Shelby has made friends that she calls her sisters. She is so excited for camp this year and I can not wait to see what she comes back learning this time. Tripp Lake was a great experience and she looks forward to making new memories with her Tripp Sisters! RID: 46368

 9/11/13   5     5     5     5     5   I was a counselor at Tripp Lake, and if you are looking for an amazing place to work or send your children to camp, Tripp is the one. Everything at Tripp IS all it is built up to be, and it changed my life as a counselor - I can't even imagine what it does for a camper. Never in my life have I felt more at home than at TLC. The girls are NOT snotty, this is the place they get to be kids. They love it with all of their hearts, and if they are snotty- they dont last long. The older campers are the ones who have cared about camp since day 1, and LOVE sharing it with the younger campers. I would recommend this place through and through. RID: 45976

Click to report rating    2/19/12   5     5     5     5     5   Tripp Lake Camp has allowed me to become the person I am today. Not only has this place done this for me, but it has also done this for my sister, mother, and 3 daughters. Never have we all learned so many core moral values from staff, the way activities are run, and the traditional values as well. There is no place better to go to teach your daughter how to branch out and be herself. To me and my family, it is a heaven and an escape of the real world drama caused by social media, cell phones, etc. I highly recommend this camp for all girls no matter how athletic, artsy, shy, bold, etc. she may be. Everyone is accepted and every one is welcomed into the Tripp Lake Family. RID: 40356

Click to report rating    1/19/12   5     5     5     5     5   tripp is the best place and camp in the entire world! it's the only camp i've gone to, and yet i am able to say that i'm positive it is the best one out there. for those who thought the bunks were ehh for the money, they are currently being redone and look beautiful along with the tripplake website that will be up soon. they invested a lot of time into it and you can see a whole tour of the camp and 360's online. tripp has been around for over 100 years now and that says a lot. i absolutely love our director leslie levy along with all the other highly qualified and well trained staff. they are truly amazing and so much fun while implementing morals in me that will last forever. i can't even begin to explain how much i love my camp friends. they mean the world to me and have made me a better person. i tell my parents every day that if there's ever something they did right in terms of parenting it was sending me to tripp! <3 sports and spirit's amazing too....so much to say but just go!

Click to report rating    1/16/12   5     5     5     5     5   I cannot even begin to put into words what an absolutely magical place Tripp Lake is. Tripp is more than a camp, it's home. It's a haven where girls can learn so much about themselves, and truly find not just best friends, but sisters. I know Tripp has changed me and made me who I am in ways that I cannot even begin to explain. No one understands the meaning of Tripp unless they are part of the Tripp Lake family. It is completely unlike any other camp. The bonds and traditions are remarkable. I could honestly go on forever about my favorite place in the world. The greatest gift anyone could ever receive is the opportunity to go to this camp. Tripp is the most important aspect of who I am, and I couldn't be more grateful. It is the most perfect place, where girls find out who they are and make remarkable bonds with so many girls that last forever. RID: 37738

Click to report rating    12/12/11   5     5     5     5     5   So I have gone to Tripp Lake now for 8 summers, now going on 9, and I can't describe how amazing this summer camp is, because it is so much more than that. Tripp Lake for a young girl is a safe place where she can learn how to express herself, try new sporting games, learn new arts and crafts skills, sing in a play, and many other things. As a girl gets older at Tripp Lake the camp becomes much more than that. Tripp Lake becomes the safest place in the world where your friends are no longer girls you spend the summer with but sisters you could not live without. Tripp Lake provides a safe haven away from "the real world" of technology, and gossip, and standards, and a place where girls can spend the summer just being themselves. Going to my last summer at TLC used to scare me because I used to think it would be the last time I could ever truly be myself, and though it may be the last time that this will really be accepted, I know I can always be myself because of TLC no matter what.

Click to report rating    1/5/11   5     5     5     5     5   I attended Tripp Lake Camp for 9 summers, and this summer was my last. I didn't know it when i walked back on the bus to return for the last time but i quickly realized I have never experienced before or ever will experience again what I had those nine summers. Seven months since camp-not a day goes by where i don't talk to my best friends or think about Tripp. It is impossible for anyone to understand the meaning of Tripp until you attend it. When I am there i have never been so happy. I found out who i was while i was growing up there. I became apart of a family that I know i can count on forever. Everything about Tripp lake is perfect- walking up and down the hill, cookie line, singing camp songs, making a bowl in pottery to bring home to your parents. My walls and closets are now filled with Tripp Lake memorbilia. Everything makes me think of camp, and everything always will. My sisters, cousins and aunts all attended Tripp and it is a tradition i will definitley keep that traditio RID: 34710

Click to report rating    12/18/08   5     5     5     5     5   This was my last summer at Tripp and i had to most amazing experience of my life. There is no reason why any one wouldn't want to sent their child there. I learned so much about my self and was able to make my best friends ever. For those people whose children who didn't have a good expereince, i would advise to try again. it is the most amazing place to be. RID: 28061

Click to report rating    11/6/08   1     2     1     1     1   terrible experience for my daughter. counselors in her bunk were not really intune to her needs, shes a pretty easy going kid, and they seemed to take advantage of that, and kind of let her "do her thing" as the group leader told me. the bunks are in terrible condition for the cost of camp...all in all tripp was just not the experience we'd hoped it would be. not to mention the terrible fiasco with their photographer...

Click to report rating    8/1/08   5     5     5     5     5   I attended Tripp Lake Camp for four summers. They were some of the best days of my life. The traditions, singing, theater, teams, activities, food, friends, trips, facilities, ceremonies, and EVERYTHING were just amazing. I still sing the songs and I am a 34 year old mother of three. If I could I would send my kids, but selfishly I can't lose them for the whole summer! What a totally wonderful experience for any girl. RID: 25346

Click to report rating    7/24/08   3     3     3     4     4   My daughter attended Tripp for 6 years. The camp itself is run like a well-oiled machine. The director is great and understands the girls better than most parents think. The staff is usually pretty good (except the issue with the photographer) The bunks need to be updated--and the rules could be updated too but overall this is a great place for girls to grow and learn about themselves. And the girls Tripp attracts are great, a variety of kids from different areas who respect each other. RID: 25091

Click to report rating    3/15/08   5     5     5     5     5   Where do I start? I live for this placcee<33 Everyday i talk about it. Ive learned how to be a Tripp Lake Camp lady. Our songs explain it. "Her reality has given stride. She lays awake and her wonders why. Mystical dreams have taken over her mind. This paradise sheltered by painted skies. ONce whispered through the dark hold it close to your heart for this place you will soon call your home. Though this love may take time tripp will lead as a guide to define who you are...." The spirit shows teamwork and love for a team. Without this place I would only be 1% of who i am today. Tripp Lake Camp made me. I learned tradition, and love for a place. I will never forget the times Ive spent there. people say how could you like a place with no boys and uniform, and I say it is the easiest way of life. I want to live there. I could never love anything more. I get butterflies in my tummy when I think about the friends and times Ive spent there. The staff and activities are AHMAZING<3 everything RID: 21313

The friends that you make here are irreplacable. All the staff are very warm and understanding the facilities are beautiful and there could not be such a beautiful place in the entire world.
