Camp Cory, Penn Yan, NY on Keuka Lake
We would like to let everyone know that we will once again be using Camp Cory, an accredited YMCA Camp on Keuka Lake in Penn Yan, NY for our annual Ticapalooza. This is a great facility that gave us the opportunity to introduce our campers to many fantastic activities including basketball, tennis, soccer, rock wall climbing, zip line, archery, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding and everyone’s favorite, the BOUNCE PILLOW to name a few. There will be one counselor familiar with TS for every 4-5 children. The campers will sleep in cabins that sleep 10 (2 adults per cabin) with full bathrooms in every cabin. Most cabins will have no more than 5-6 campers. All meals will be served in the camp dining room. The camp provides trained and certified staff, who run all activities. There will also be a registered nurse, Sharon Schulz, school nurse from Ken-Ton Schools, on duty all weekend to dispense medications and take care of all health issues.
We are able to offer this fabulous weekend to all residents of the TSA of Greater NY State chapter area from across the state for a fee of $165.00 per camper. If you have transportation issues from anywhere in the state, please let us know and hopefully we will be able to help arrange for car pools.
We have some full and partial scholarships available for anyone who needs. If you are interested in a scholarship, please fill out the form in the registration materials. When you fill out the medication forms, please remember that ALL MEDICATIONS MUST BE GIVEN TO THE NURSE WHEN YOU ARRIVE FOR REGISTRATION AND MUST BE IN THE ORIGINAL PRESCRIPTION CONTAINER. You will receive an email confirmation once your registration has been received. Once we get closer to the weekend, you will also receive further details of the weekend activities as well as directions to the camp. If any family coming from a distance would like to stay on the camp grounds in the parent’s lodge with bathroom facilities or a private cabin with bathroom and shower facilities nearby, they do have limited facilities available.
ALL REGISTRATION FORMS MUST BE SENT IN BY NO LATER THAN AUGUST 23, 2019. The registration is being done electronically this year and is
attached to this email.
