I went to Tagola from 1962 to 1965. One of the best days of my life was hitting a single in the bottom of the 9th inning to beat Camp Sequoia 1-0. I was never happier. Aside from softball, my favorite activity was sneaking out of camp to go to "Miltie's" a run-doen candy store that looked like it belonged in the Andy Griffith Show!

Sadly today we lost a very big part of our TaGoLa family. Lenny Weisenthal you will be missed. That face, smile, and personality. He was a warm, fun, and loving person. So many fond memories  from camp, color wars at your house, birthday parties and just hangin out. Bette, this is a tough one but you were always his Wonder Woman. Stay strong. Thinking of the whole Weisenthal family tonight. Love to all. Debbie

My first recollections of Tagola are a bit fuzzy as to exact dates. I went as a camper- waiter (what a reacket - pay to work) but they did provide a counselor. that year it was Mickey Winograd who played basketball for Duquesne U. The basketball court was lit and they had some very good intercamp games, some with well known players. I think my first year was 1954 or '55. I remember one of the more creative casmper/waiters found a way from our bunk to some shack that overlooked one of the seniior girls bunk dressing. I think Helen Greenberg was in tht bunk at the time. She was the daughter of one of the camp's owners Sam. I think the camp had more pieces of ownership than a chess set. Helen's older brothers, Norman and Harold were involved. Harold being in charge of some kitcher resonsibility including the waiters. He had a pretty wife, Jane. Norman seemed to come upo on weekends and he too had a very pretty wife. One of the wife's had a really young child and the mischieviious waiters decided to try and teach him his first sentence. It went somethike, Mommy has big ----". Harold thought it was so cute. There were guest facilities on the camp grounds and a guest dinning room. The camper waiters were given turn (to make tipsZ) to work as bus boys in the guest dinning room on some of the weekends. I remember one of the leaders of the waiters was Bitzy Kramer. It seemed many people at the camp were related to the owners one way or another. I remember that it seemed that Mickey Winograd went to sleep early every evening and was often still asleep in the morning.  It was a very good summer and I loved it. The following year I went to Red Cross acquatic school and came back to work at the pool. What a great facility and by the end of the summer they got pretty much everyone swimming. Some campers got additional instruction during the normal rest hour. There were some small rooms at the pool and one of them had a green massage table in it. It was termed "the Green Room" and may have been used for activities other than massage. In fact I do not remember any massages being given there. The head waterfron was Harry Pearlman, an older man, very nice who was a teacher at I believe the high school that taught printing trades,  Those working at the pool had I think a great job and great time. We used to vacuum the pool with some sort of contraption pulled across the bottom of the pool by a rope held,or pulled by us on either side. One of the co Assistant waterfront guys (in addition to myself) was Murray Goldstein, an older guy from my neighborhood and a friend of my older brother. He introduced to to what "it" was all about' He would go over to what were called the Laurel bungalows and I had some of the wildest times of my life there. I also found out why Mickey (the waiter's counselor) went to be so early and was sleeping in the morning. After the waiters went to bed, he would get up , walk over to the Laurels, and party all night at the bungalows, coming back to camp just before dawn. I may have worked at the pool more than one year. I remember my brother had jsut returned from the military and he went with me when I was "interviewed" by the powers that be at Mr. Greenberg's office (26 Court Street?) where he conductedhis accounting practice. They were anxioius to get a veteran for the counselor staff. I think my brother lasted about eight days before he and the camp had enough of each other. They called me in to make sure I would not quit if he left - I didn't. As I said, I got my WSI (WaterSafety Instructor) from the Red cross and went on to be head waterfront at Camp Ranger (the Girl's side) and also at Camp Farrington in New Jersey. I must have really enjoyed the camp life.the waterfron staff were on something of a elevated plane. I remember instead of "hooking up" and dating one person the whoole season, Tagola was large enough that I had plenty of female company but can only remember one name - Barbara Petchnik, who I believe went to school in Pennsylvania while I attended Cornell Law School I am sadly afraid that the days of chiildrens summer camp of the ilk we experienced are gone by and large forever. Too much liability, too many lawyers.

omg... I can't believe this website exists! I went to Camp Tagola when I was a little kid, it was my first (and only) sleepaway camp. I don't remember how old I was when I went, but it had to be when I was around 9 to 12 years old or something like that, back in the early to mid 60's. I'm gonna have to call my parents up and find out when it was. I remember it so well too, I was always in trouble there (for the best reasons! lol). I used to have my gang of guys and we would dress up in dark clothes and sneak out of our bunk at night and dig holes under the big wood fencing of the girls camp area and raid their bunks, stealing their underwear and basically getting all the girls to scream... LOL. I remember being punished and having to stand at the flag pole for I don't know how many hours. I remember doing that once and it was parents visiting day and there I was again, forced to stand at the flag pole as my parents showed up. hahaha. When I went there, my brother Mike, who is about 7 years older than me, was a counselor there himself for a couple of summers. I don't remember any of my friends there but I do remember my very first girlfriend there, her name was Renee, that's all I remember, have no idea what she looked like (I would kill to see a picture of her from back then). I remember when the summer was over, and I was saying goodbye to her, she gave me my baseball glove back, basically ending our 'relationship' lol, I was so upset I threw the glove up on top of one of the buildings there. My first breakup! LOLOL! If I remember correctly, the lady who either ran the Camp or was one of the owners or maybe just a top manager or something there, was related to my family in one way or another, or maybe related to my mom's best friend or something. I need to ask my mom about that. Oh yeah, I remember going to the camp dances, I remember getting dressed up and greasing my hair up and borrowing some other bunk kid's cologne to wear, to flirt with the girls. And I remember once I shattered a counselor's leg once with a baseball bat! The counselors seemed big to us but they were just high school kids, and some obviously weren't too smart. We were playing baseball and I was in the batter's box practicing swinging and he walked right into me right when I did a full swing and hit him square on in his shin, I can remember the sound of his leg snapping to this day. I was so upset I was just crying my eyes out, I felt horriible. I remember visiting him in the infirmary and he wasn't happy with me at all... In retrospect, he was a real a-hole, making a little kid feel bad cause of his mistake, ha. But yeah, the counselors, at least some of them like that guy, were just kids themselves. Oh yeah, Camp Tagola, wish I had some pics or something of those days, I think I only went there for one summer, but a half century later and I still remember it. Still remember horse back riding and taking care of the horses working in the stables, and of course my very first girlfriend! ha.... Too fun. I'll find out exactly when I went soon and visit back here. Fun!

I was sorry to miss the reunion, but enjoyed viewing the photos on this site.  Wished the name tags were larger, but I did recognize Lenny, Betty, Ina, Alan, George, etc.  Did I see Richie Bergman in one or two of the photos?

 I went to Tagola from 1962 to 1965. I have fond memories of sneaking off to Miltie's and not-so-fond memories of color war inspections. My counselors that first year (Bunk 12B) were Denny Sidor and Jay Arkin (we were all big Koufax fans). Some buddies I remember are Jeff Shapp, Steve Shrager and Duck Davidoff (and his brother Little Duck). I remember fondly Pete Davis leading the Blue Vikings. One of the highlights of my life was singling in the winning run in the last inning to beat Sequoia 1-0 in 1965!

I remember playing "Anna" to Larry Parker's "King" in The King and I.  He had to wear a headpiece to make him look bald.  When we played his death scene, he, and then I, couldn't stop laughing.  What a way to go! I was lucky enough to play the queen in The Princess and the Pea to Karen's (can't recall your last name) Princess.  Karen and I played tetherball at every opportunity and she always won.  I've got lots of pictures and videos.  Hello to Ellen W.

I haven't been on this site for a while and just learned of Dr. Frankel's passing. I grew up in Forest Hills and Dr. Frankel was my pediatrician. I loved and trusted him and when it was time to go to an "adult" doctor, I had a really hard time with it. Going to the camp infirmary was even a fun thing because of him - his warmth, kindness and sense of humor - something I doubt kids from other camps could say. My sincere condolences to the entire Frankel family. I feel honored to have known him and I'm glad I got to see him one last time at the reunion.

Dear Irene, Barbara, Judy, Richie, Carolyn and Joanie,
Please know that our heartfelt condolences are with you all. As I wrote in my personal note to Irene, Jack "Doc" Frankel meant a great deal to me throughout my young life. At the age of eight I ended up in the Infirmary for 6 days. Every day, twice a day ( and sometimes more), Jack came in with his big smile, a big hug and a big kiss. He made this little eight year old girl feel that being in the infirmary was not such a terrible thing. From there on, for the next 12 years I adored the man! Everytime that he would see me I was greeted with that same hug, kiss and smile. He always seemed happy and his wonderful laugh echoed throughout the camp.
Last year at the reunion, it was an absolute joy to see Jack and Irene.  
May you all now how much your family has meant to all of us. We have been blessed to share so many wonderful moments together.
Love,
Robin

How saddened I was when Bette called with the news about Dr. Frankel. I know we all have many memories about him because the Frankels were such Ta-Go-La celebrities. Dr. Frankel was never the kind of doctor who made a child scared. In fact ,during our yearly check-ups, (remember waiting on line outside the infirmary?), he would make us laugh by telling us that we had "potatos and tomatoes" in our ears. He was such a wonderful presence at our camp and loved playing tennis on the courts by the pool, looking so handsome in his whites. I can still remember when the Carolyn was born, it was as if we all had a new baby sister. My condolences to all the Frankels and to our Ta-Go-La family.

Dr. Frankel attended the Camp Reunion last September and he and Irene were the celebrities of the party.  Judy, his daughter said it was so important to them both to be at the reunion and they talked about it for many months after. It was very important to all the Tagolians to have had him there and to have had him as part of our lives. We will miss our Dr. Frankel!!!!!

Dr. Frankel was the first doctor I was ever aware of, from Ta-go-la infirmary days. He was kind and patient and seemed so wise and knowing, while never rushed. A far cry from the doctors I have visited since. His son Richie was my counselor one year and was uniquely well liked by everyone. 
 
I know that my grandparents Shirley and Sam Greenberg appreciated and admired Dr. Frankel, and I want to extend my condolences to any of his realtives reading this.



It was wonderful for me to see Dr. Frankel one last time at last year's reunion which Bette so graciously organized. 



He may have had Alzheimers, but he was entirely lucid when we spoke. He told me that at one point in his career, he had determined that he would no longer work as the camp doctor, and told my grandfather that. Sam asked him to please stay, that the camp needed him, and he reversed his decision.



"Your grandfather was the only person in the world I would have done that for," Dr. Frankel told me. "I loved him so much."


It touched and surprised me so to hear him say this, and made me cry, as it does right now, thinking of this. 



Farewell, Dr. Frankel, and thank you for being there for so many of us when we were sick.

Ta Go La was a part of my life for almost 10 years(late 60's-70's) and they were very special memories.  My bunk was fantastic-Elyse Rosenberg, Debbie Finkel,Bonnie Baron, Ilene Shane and Erica Haft.  Barbara Benowitz was our group leader and lived in our bunlk.  We were one big,happy family.  Ilene mentioned that in her message.  I agree with Elyse that color war was my favorite part of camp .Being color war captain several times was such a thrill. I loved sing , especially  the alma maters.  We would always cry.  Also, I met my husband Lloyd there.  He was my sister Maxine's waiter. We've been married for 32 years.  I remember the raids on boys side(got caught because of my red hair) and the delicious onion rolls for breakfast.   Ta Go La was a fantastic place  and  I hope Lloyd and i can be there at the next reunion.

Dear All: I can not say it any better than the words my sister chose so beautifully. This was a day I will never forget. I just find it hard to believe that so much time has passed and we aren't kids anymore. All or most of the images I had tucked away in my mind were thrust into fast forward in one day. My head is still spinning. It was great to see so many of you and thanks for remembering me. All my best to every person who made this event such a success. To Betty-Jane and Lenny thank you for your hard work. Danny Shane

Well that was a total high! The 4 hours went by in five minutes. It was amazing to see everyone and while I knew all us have aged just a little, I could see everyone as their younger selves running around the camp. Even two days later I am still buzzing. We have to try to do this again and soon especially since so many of us live so close by. There is nothing like camp friends. Ricky I miss your red hair!!!
Love to you all

OMG,

I felt like I was at a fast forward movie but it was real…..I want to thank Betty-Jane and Lenny for hosting such a successful reunion… As time went on the faces and the times became more familiar and the years disappeared between then and now.. It just took a few minutes for everything to come back, as I spoke to long lost friends and people I loved and hated…The moments of dislike I had then truly diminished into deep appreciation for every sole that was present and the ones that didn’t make it and some who are no longer on this earth.  I hope we can do this again soon and more will be familiar because today  was today. It closed the giant black hole of time.  I am so touched to have been a part of this passage of time and it will always be in my heart.. To see Dr. Frankel and Mrs. Frankel and Sylvia Tucker and the rest of the people who were the “Adults ” running our camp still well and thriving was so incredible that there faces will be embedded in my mind forever…But now we are adults too and it seems too strange..  This was really a mirror of time and I figured out today that I am no longer a kid just very immature and ridiculous but so what…I hope I see you all again whether walking down he street or at the next reunion or the promise we made to each other not to loose touch again.. Today was an OMG day.. THANK YOU!!!!!

All my Love,

 

Ilene

Just e-mailed with "Roots" Greenberg and i just wanted to say quick hey to, Gail Bialostock, Neil Kramer, "Shaps", Felice Baron, the Frankels, "Zuck" and when i've dusted off the cobwebs in the Ta-Go-La section of my brain, i'll come back and shout out to a few more ... great camp, great times!

I have such wonderful memories of camp- the hot chocolate on cold mornings, the onion rolls, the usty smell of the Fallsburg theatre, sneaking out to the hotels, evacuating the entire camp as a practical joke, being the worst bunk on campus and having to make amends.  I started camp in 62 I think, in that house for sophomores- it was actually heated.  But my best memories are of the friendships made as I travelled around the camp with my friends and our pseudomom " Barbara Benowitz" as our head counselor.  Color War was always my favorite- it was nice after almost 10 years to end with being a Lieutenant.  And of course we all got our prepartations for life at camp.  What wonderful memories.  I look forward to reminiscing on Saturday.

How many of you snuck out of camp through the hole in the fence, it was behind the counslers cabins. My grand parents, Phil and Fae Levine owned the property next to the camp. Gramps kept the hole open and even provided water to the camp when needed. My memories are so sweet of the summers and campers i got to know each summer. My best memory was finding a camp shirt down at the lake and wearing it was chased for not returning to camp! Alaska is now my home, but I remain up there.

Four years of summer memories, 1959-62, bunks 2A, 7, 11, and 4.  I remember Ava, Carol, Ellen, Peggy, and especially Mary Kaplan.  She was Dorothy, and I was the good witch. Such giggles when I had to kiss her.  Lynn Rosenberg was "Powerhouse",  the best Soph kickball player and the head counselor's daughter.  The next summer she was gone -- leukemia.  I can tell hours of detailed stories to my amazed kids. But I can't recall what I did yesterday!

Well I was dragged there (in '68 or '69) by my mother Gloria who was girls HC.  She had a better time than I did most summers but eventually it assumed the same iconic role for me as well.  I stayed until I went off to college in Aug. '74.  For meTagola will always be defined by the era of Gail G., Holly F, Robin F et al., our impossibly cool counselors (didn't some of you actually go to Woodstock and bring back those t-shirts with the guitar/birds logo, or did I make that up?).  Cheers to all if I don't make it (Gail Bialostock, Sharon Greenberg and Elise Brodsky in particular) down.  Like camp itself, Gloria would've enjoyed this reunion a lot more than I would.  She talked about camp right to the end.

I have such wonderful memories of Camp Ta-Go-La...from first loves and kisses to the Color Wars, Ritz and talent shows.  Hard to believe I was a counselor!  : )  But my fondest memories of the fanastic BUNK 7 in 1963.

Enjoy your reunion...I will be in San Francisco attending a wedding.  Wish one tuchus could dance at two affairs (so something like that).

With loving memories, Iris...Color War General: Blue Maccabees

Hi. Does anyone remember me? I remember basically no one. I gather its because camp was a long time ago, and I only went for 2 summers. I was there the summers of 69 and 70. I was in a couple of plays - Flidder on the Roof and Bye Bye Birdie. Was anyone in these plays? Back then I lived in Woodmere NY, but I have lived in the Los Angeles area since 1972. Can you tell me if anyone from those years is attending? I do remember my waiter's name - Lloyd. How odd that I would remember the waiter, but not the campers. I gather he was nice and got me what I wanted.Thanks!!

Reading some of the memories from camp has really triggered so many memories for me.  Thanks for reminding me of Milties, what a fun place to go.  That feeling of independence! Am remembering songs as well, and I'm sitting here at the computer this morning and singing to myself.  Those were such wonderful summers.  Funny someone wrote about french kissing.  I remember that being a topic of conversation.  Can't remember who taught me how to smoke but that's where I learned and thank goodness stopped 6 years later. Names I remember are the Fishman girls and their brother Louis, Maddy Shev, Herman Lakritz, his cousin whose first name I can't remember, Martin Stein, Danny Rosen, Eddie Goldstein (also know as Woody)who was my first boyfriend at camp when I was 12 or 13, Merle Rosen, Jo, Renee.  I was there from about 1953-1957.  I remember crying when I first arrived and then crying when I had to leave.  Because of the wonderful experience I had both my kids went to camp and they loved it.  Funny, I think I have a sense memory of the smell of the dining hall.  Not a good thing.  My sister, Beverly Lederman, also was with me at camp.  She's 5 years younger.  Thanks Bette Jane for the gift of time and memory.  Don't think I can attend but it's not completely out of the question.  I currently live in northern CA.

Hello to all Tagola friends. The decade of the 60's was filled with two months at camp every summer. It seems like yesterday, or a little bit longer,that these wonderful and life shaping events took place. I do recall the summer of 69 when having a day off from my waiters job that Puppy and i actually escaped and attended Woodstock! Yes, that really did happen. So many other memories.  Take care! Hope to make it to the reunion in Sept...

We're going to try to make it.  Seeing names like Melanie Herter and of course my bunkmate Jay Benowitz brings it all back...eventhough we're talking 33 years ago.
