We’ve been very busy preparing the summer menu. It’s been great sampling new foods and we’re real excited to be creating a menu that’s both delicious and nutritious. We’ve started by selecting the main meals that campers loved, and adding new healthy ones. Then we’ve matched them with a tasty vegetable for your enjoyment. We are always looking for and finding new, healthy items. Continue reading
An essential piece in the development of every child is the process by which they come to feel good about themselves: building positive self-esteem. Parents start the process on a baby’s first day and continue throughout their child’s growing years. At their earliest age, children get used to the effusive praise of parents and other adults. Neil Armstrong’s first step on the face of the moon was nothing compared to your child’s first step on the living room carpet.
Praising our children seems so logical and natural that it just doesn’t seem possible that there is a right way to do it – and a wrong way. In a recent article by Katy Waldman, published by The Slate Group, the author points to recent studies that distinguish between positive and negative praise, effective and ineffective praise. One of the key findings is that the effect of praise depends “on the characteristics of the kid receiving it.”
Happy New Year to all our campers and their families! We hope you had a wonderful holiday season and that you’re off to a great start to the New Year! We’ve been very busy on our end planning what we expect to be an exceptional “EPIC” upcoming summer for you! Continue reading
In an unusual turn of events that we won’t see again in our lifetime, let alone in another 79,000 years, Hanukkah and Thanksgiving arrived at the same time this year. With Christmas fast approaching next week, and as we prepare to ring in a new year, we look with hope to what’s to come and reflect on the year that’s ending.
Being creative and what comes out of that creativity is the best gift you can give someone during the holidays! Whether it’s something that’s handmade using clay, paper, glue and markers, or making-up a dance routine, singing a song, or writing your own story, anything that comes from the heart is always worth sharing with loved ones.
My name is Josh Schimsky…. (but people call me “Schim”.) I’m originally from Commack, but I now currently live in Syosset. I have an amazing 6 year old son named Lucas and a very loving and supportive family. Both Lucas and I are North Shore Day Camp’ers! (Actually, Lucas is a camper and I am the camp’s Basketball specialist…)
Much planning goes into family gatherings like Thanksgiving. Generally, someone offers his or her home as a place to host the Thanksgiving gathering, sets the time, invites the guests, plans the menu and prepares for the day’s flurry of activities. Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year that marks the beginning of the holiday season!
Last week the TLC Family of Camps participated in a very spirited Camp T-Shirt Day, sponsored by Camp CRAZE and which benefitted SCOPE (Summer Camp Opportunities Promote Education, a non-proﬁt organization whose mission is to provide children in need the edge to succeed in life through a summer camp experience.)

Hi! My name is Bridget and I live in Bayside, Queens with my Mom, Dad, 2 cats and goldfish. I like to play hopscotch, ride my scooter, go to the park and go ice-skating. I go to Elementary School and I am in the first grade. My favorite colors are pink and purple. I love music and listen to kids bop songs all the time! I also like to read or have my Mom read to me. My favorite thing to read is Ivy and Bean books. I have read them all!
My name is Jillian Boccia. I grew up in Oyster Bay, on Long Island, with my mom. Even though I am an only child, I have had my fair share of pet fish to keep me company!
I have been a cheerleader since I was about seven years old and still continue to cheer as a Binghamton University Bearcat. Throughout high school, I also coached cheerleading for the Oyster Bay Roughriders for about 6 years. Along with cheerleading, I enjoy just about any form of exercise, spending time with friends and family, and just being social.
