Camp Fun All Year Long With Timber Lake Camps App

September 7, 2012 Pivotal Labs

We’re reluctant to acknowledge it but the shorter days, colder nights, and the arrival of the CNE here in Toronto all signal that summer is coming to a close. This is a sad time for all of us, but especially for kids who spend their summer days at camp.

Timber Lake Camp, based in New York state, understands that for campers and their families alike leaving at the end of summer can be a sad time. After spending days making new friends, exploring the outdoors, enjoying fun activities and free time returning back home and to school can leave many with a feeling of disconnect.

Partnering with Xtreme Labs, Timber Lake Camps have created three different apps to keep campers from their three overnight residential camps connected all throughout the year. Three apps for iPad and iPhone connect campers to three different camps; Timber Lake, Tyler Hill, or Timber Lake West.

Access your CampInTouch account, the Timber Lake Facebook page, Twitter feed, YouTube videos and links to other TLC Family of Camps from inside the app. Still can’t wait to go back to camp? Check out these features you’re sure to love:

Set a countdown to remind you how many days are left until you’re back at camp. Set up notifications on a daily, every other day or weekly basis.

View the ‘Photo of the Day’ through the app and share it with your family and friends on Facebook, Twitter, or via email.

Relive camp highlights of summer at with daily updates. Through the app get weekly camper, staff or alumni stories, along with recaps of events and reunions.

Access your CampInTouch account, the Facebook page, Twitter Feed, YouTube Videos & links to all the other camps in the TLC Family of Camps.
