Bob Costas, Camp McAlister alumnus,
introduces the New York YMCA Camp’s 100-Year Anniversary!
Tellabrationˌ teləˈbrāSH(ə)n, noun: Definition: The action of marking one’s pleasure at an important event or occasion by engaging in storytelling, typically camp-related.
Think about a specific time at camp that holds significance for you – maybe a quiet moment by the lake or a particularly funny skit, maybe a challenge you overcame or someone special you met at camp. Tell us about it.
Don’t get hung up on form. Just give us the story. If you are doing a video, it’s totally OK to do it with your phone. You can submit a written story or and audio file – whatever works.
Email your story to us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll be sharing stories throughout the year – in bits and pieces, some in their entirety. We are going to hang onto some of them for a while to get the timing right.
On Thursday, January 31, 2019 (SAVE THE DATE!!!!!) We will present some of the most significant/moving/entertaining/important stories at a live Tellabration Finale at the King Alphonso Room of the West Side YMCA (5 West 63rd Street, NY, NY) from 6:00-8:00pm. Click here to register.
Submit way more than one story. This is our history! If you are wondering what to share, visit our facebook group for ideas: https://www.facebook.com/groups/NYYCampAlumni
