Week 3 – Tuesday

It’s a hot one out there, but we’re staying cool by jumping in the water all day! Yesterday, we went to Spring Loaded Trampoline Park and jumped around for a bit to stay out of the sun, but we’re back and shredding today! We went on the boat this morning and did a couple surf sessions and wakeboarded! Here are a couple updates!

Camp TSR 2016 has begun!!!

Hey Mom and Dad!!!!DSC00093

The Camp TSR 2016 season has officially begun, and it is off to a GREAT start! The storms quit just in time for camp, and the sun has continued to shine. Campers have had full week already, and it is only Day 2! With plenty of water and wakeboard time throughout the days, we have sprinkled in some snowboarding, skating, sledding, and surfing. Yesterday afternoon, we held a DSC00098camp-wide dodgeball tournament over at Spring Loaded with some jump time left to spare! TSR also had a very special guest come to visit yesterday, and the campers were thrilled! Pro wakeboarder, Parks Bonifay, hung out with the kiddos and chatted with them about riding. We are excited for the rest of the week, and we will keep you posted about their busy schedules!!

Parents of Overnight Campers,

Here are some specific updates for each of the campers:

Miram’s Group

  1. Clara has been taking on the big cable, and she hit the funbox and the incline rail today! She has also been loving the surf sessions behind the boat and loved catching some rays!
  2. Augie was very excited to try surfing today. He had never surfed behind the boat before, and he finally tried it and loved it!
  3. Jayden was a beginner wakeboarder coming into Camp TSR this week, and he has improved so much! Not only did he master the little cable, he has moved on to the big cable and made it all the way around!
  4. Eva is also new to the sport, and she has also mastered the little cable and has successfully made it halfway around the big cable! We are so stoked for her!!
  5. Storm, another beginner rider, has been taking on the cable and has learned to turn and carve while riding!

IMG_8282Wow!! This summer has gone by way too quickly, and we could not be more thankful for having your children join us for Camp TSR 2015! We had an AMAZING group of kids and teens each session, and we are so sad to see this summer come to a close. The Camp TSR staff would like to thank the campers for making this season a time to remember and cherish, and we would also like to thank the family of each camper for giving us the privilege to spend our summer with your children. All of the photos and videos have been uploaded for each session, so please feel free to check those out and see how your child spent their time with us!

IMG_8154Even though we are sad to see summer 2015 wrap up, we are reminded of the fact that Camp TSR 2016 is less than a year away!
