“Our entire family couldn’t be happier with our daughter’s experience at Camp Tricklin’ Falls last fall. We had just moved to MA from Michigan and were struggling with planning her summer when we heard about CTF. I was sad that my daughter would not be able to attend the camp I had as a girl and enjoy the same experiences. I was amazed that she was able to participate in almost all the same activities at CTF day camp as I did at overnight camp. Where else could she have learned archery, rock climbing, kayaking, swimming, team work and respect for nature, along with the same songs I had learned all those years ago at my overnight camp in Michigan? CTF and the staff there helped my daughter become a camper-for-life, and I couldn’t feel better about how she was cared for. She comes home dirty, tired and happy...just like a camper should! Thank you, Camp Tricklin’ Falls. See you next summer!” ~ Mary Over 700 campers in 2011 participated in Haverhill YMCA summer camps. Over $300,000.00 in financial aid was given throughout the year.
