September Camp 2015
September Camp is our family camp that runs from the end of regular camp to Labour Day. New families and alumni come from all over to enjoy the nostalgia of summer camp, meeting new people and reuniting with familiar faces. Often, September Camp is an annual meeting point for groups of friends who grew up attending summers at the Taylor Statten Camps. This year we had guests ranging between the ages of 6 months and 92!
What does a typical day at September Camp look like?
Breakfast is at 8am but do not worry, it is not mandatory for guests. There are always snacks and coffee available mid- morning. Lunch is at 12:30pm and dinner is at 6:00pm. All meals are served by TSC’s September Camp CITs and alternative dishes are available if you have any dietary restrictions. The mornings and afternoons are filled with activities such as riding, tennis, sailing, swimming, high ropes, arts & crafts and archery. The kids program, this year run by Maddie Harper, available for 2 hours in the morning and afternoon provides lots of fun new activities every day.
Highlights of September Camp
Evening Activities – Council Ring, Bantam Beach BBQ, Coffee House, Casino Night, Kids Fun Night, you name it! These activities were on point this year with major staff and guest involvement. Impressive water boiling technique at Council Ring, delicious food at the Bantam Beach BBQ, beautiful music at the Coffee House, hilarious antics at Casino Night and candy galore at Kids fun Night. We also had a blue grass band come by for a concert night! The evening activities truly make September Camp special.
The Bursary Fund Auction – Every summer, the Saturday afternoon of Labour Day weekend is home to an auction held by the TSCBF to raise money to send deserving kids to camp. This year, auction items that stood out include photos by Mike Last, paintings of the outpost, retro clothing, chicken wings, poutine, the Best Seats in the House and more!
4pm Get Togethers – Look no further than the Bay cabin porch or Mountaineer docks… there are always fun gatherings happening at 4pm! Guests invite other guests and staff to enjoy the beauty of Canoe Lake with good food and wonderful company.
Why attend September Camp?
These 10 days combine nostalgia, new memories, good food, great conversation and amazing people. Thank you to Director Dave Jeffries and his extraordinary group of staff who went above and beyond the call of duty.
