There is still space available during the fall weekends (Labor Day, Sept 6–8, Sept 13–15, and Sept 20–22). If you haven't experienced the wonder of Three Mile before, or if you haven't visited us in a while, now is your chance! Please see the Reservations page to download a reservation form or to find out more.
Who will be in the director's chair this summer?
NH Public Television was overwhelmed by the surprise success of WIllem Lange's Camping on Three Mile Island video. This show, highlighting all the reasons that campers love the island and return year after year, made a big impression on a lot of people.
In particular, it made a big impression on some executives at CBS. The network that made Survivor wants to produce a different sort of reality TV show.
Plans are constantly changing, but it will all come together soon. The format is likely to involve a different celebrity on the island each week. Imagine Greg Louganis taking some dives off of Wicked High, and coaching the Croo on their technique. Or Martha Stewart giving tips on cabin decorating and the perfect way to fold a deer hat.
In addition to the usual AMC liability waiver, all TMI campers this summer will be asked to sign an Audio/video release form. Please download a copy of this form and bring it with you when you visit.
TMI was featured on New Hampshire Public Television's Windows to the Wild on January 10.
"Here on Three Mile Island life is serene..." Windows to the Wild host Willem Lange wrote on his web site following his visit to Three Mile in July. He and a film crew captured the island's serenity—as well as more frenetic meals and a square dance—for future broadcast on his popular NHPT series. You can watch the show online here:
We managed to assemble most of the volunteers and committee on the steps right after breakfast.
End of the day on the dock, closing weekend 2012. The Mount Washington floats by in the distance.
