In our eight episode, Ingrid and Heidi Scanlon share their trip stories: trips that went well, trips that changed over time, and trips that didn’t go quite as planned!
In our seventh episode, three alums swap their funniest and craziest stories from Fleur de Lis. Pam Fricke talks about being a bearded lady, and Hannah Fricke and Emily Tingle recount a story involving a plunger.

In our second episode of After Taps, Amy Bates talks with Lexy Heatley about Fleur de Lis Camp, and Lexy’s time as the Camp Director. In addition to Director, Lexy has been a camper, a CT, a staff member, and now, parent of a camper. She shares her camp memories and her thoughts on why camp is so important for kids.
In our first episode, we talk with Diane Foster who served as interim director for a year at Fleur de Lis Camp. Now, she’s the Vice President on the Board of Directors at FdL, but also a parent of two awesome campers. Di shares her views on camp, the camp community, nd why she thinks Fleur de Lis is an “extraordinary place.”
After Taps is a short retelling of a story from a Fleur de Lis Camp alum. Fleur de Lis has an incredibly strong sense of community, which is the main reason girls love the camp experience. And the best way to connect and engage a community is by telling (and re-telling) stories.
Produced by Amy Bates and Hannah Weiner, After Taps episodes will be released once a month starting November 2016.
