2013 Summer Program Day by Day at T-K-T

The children arrived via school buses for Summer Camp 2013 on Sunday, July 28th for a week of fun and excitement. 

Click HERE to see some highlights of Day 1!

And HERE is some Day 2 action aboard the LCT Ferry "Champlain". 

Day three brought the kids to the Water Carnival at Sandbar State Park, followed by a wonderful meal courtesy of a group of volunteers from Sodexo at UVM with an assist from our own Kitchen Staff.  HERE we see the nightly flag lowering with the Middle Girls Cabin inspiring the crowd.

"Swing on a Star" was the theme for this year's TKT Prom.  For some of our children, this may be "their" prom.  We try to make it special by dressing up the "Activities Barn" in style, and making it a truly memorable event.  Click HERE to see what we mean!
