Where did Bruce Beck do Camp?

Hey, Summer Campers!

So many of the famous celebrities we post about who were former campers like yourself get their fame in pop music or movies. But other summer camp alumni develop their name by means of entrepreneurship, sports, and broadcasting. Combine sports, broadcasting, and a history at summer camp and you have WNBC’s lead sports anchor Sports broadcasting gave Mr. Beck his name.Bruce Beck.

As a young man, Bruce enjoyed his summer escapes to Tyler Hill Camp, squared away in  Wayne County, Pennsylvania. About three hours northwest of Bruce’s home in Livingtson, New Jersey, Tyler Hill Camp showed him a gorgeous campus of 220 acres that features two large lakes, excellent athletic facilities, a nine-hole golf course, and 12 tennis courts!

After graduating grade school and high school, Bruce went on to attend Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York. His studies mainly focused on science there and in just several years, he graduated with a Bachelor of Science.

Soon after his graduation, Bruce found himself employed as a staff broadcaster for the Madison Square Garden Network, hosting the coverage for the Knicks, Rangers, and Yankees and performing as the play-by-play announcer for college football as well as basketball. A few years down the road, he’d start calling professional boxing matches too—particularly the Evander Holyfield vs. Mike Tyson II matchup from June 28, 1997.

By the time he turned 38, he started hosting ‘Sportstalk’ and ‘Sports Images’, while calling college basketball games for CBS Sports as well as play-by-play announcing for select sporting events including the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

Highlights of Bruce’s career include five Superbowls, three NBA Finals, six Stanley Cup Finals, six World Series, The U.S. Open Tennis Championship, The U.S. Open Golf Championship, and The NCAA Final Four. He’s also covered seven Olympics—most recently the Rio games from last year.

Bruce shot high and never looked back. Look at the heights he hit. What heights will you reach? You can check out Tyler Hill Camp for yourself if it sounds like a good fit for your family. And, as always, thanks for reading.

Día de los Muertos

Hey, Halloween Lovers!

There’s an autumnal chill in the air with little spirits running around laughing as they haunt the streets for tricks or treats. And everyone’s porches are decorated with bright orange pumpkins and ghoulish gourds, carved with faces. Filling today with absurd aThe Halloween Scene is different from that of Dia de los Muertos.ctivities, dreadful decorations, and creepy costumes, no other holiday embraces the morbid and macabre like celebration of Halloween…or does there?

Over the years, I’ve written a number of posts to discuss the many means of celebration for one of the world’s most popular holidays: Halloween. Always coinciding in the harvest season, another holiday is celebrated in Mexico called Día de los Muertos or, the Day of the Dead—landing very close to Halloween on the calendar. The Day of the Dead begins at midnight tonight.

Often considered something of a Mexican Halloween by those who don’t observe it, the Day of the Dead may appear as a similar celebration on the surface, but Día de los Muertos is much more meaningful to the people of Mexico than Halloween is to the folks who observe it. Dia de los Muertos has interesting cultural art.You may love Halloween—I do too!—but Día de los Muertos is about loved ones gathering to remember friends and family who have passed on. Traditions of this holiday are to construct private altars and decorations to honor the dead.

A decorated altar for Dia de los Muertos.Día de los Muertos wasn’t always so widespread in Mexico as it is nowadays. As of a few years ago, it’s gained popularity and celebrations have expanded to include live music, dancing, and parades from residential neighborhoods to cemeteries where family members can visit the gravesites of their loved ones.

With its increasing popularity, we wanted to join in the celebration of life that once was with our Seasonal Day of the Dead Storage Trunk. Featuring the festive artwork of Mexican culture, this trunk is a surprisingly colorful explosion amidst the dark abyss of death that easily inserts itself into part of your family’s altar. Keep your altar decorations inside This surprisingly colorful camp trunk is great for Dia de los Muertos!this beautifully constructed storage trunk and make the most of your Día de los Muertos celebration!
