What one piece of advice do you want to share with younger campers?
A piece of advice I would share too young campers, is never rush your summers at Tyler Hill, cherish every moment like it’s your last, squeeze your best friend's hand when walking from activities, laugh as hard as you can when see your “inside joke”, cry when the buses pull out those big white gates. Finally, take in every breath, every moment and every step, it goes by in heartbeat and soon all you’ll have is memories..
