While studying elementary education at The College of Saint Rose, twin sisters Shameka and Lynette met Tom, who, like them would go on to teach in the region's public elementary schools. As the founders of TSL Adventures, the three harbor a passion for teaching children and high-fiving crossing guards that extends beyond the classroom. In an interview with Fox 23, Tom elaborated on the trio's connection by saying that they "share the same enthusiasm, that same boisterousness."
Their enterprise with TSL Adventures began with summer programming that educated and entertained children with community-focused classes and team-building skills. During the camp, kids sing songs, conduct science experiments, and splash around in pools on swimming trips. Teachers work closely with kids throughout the whole day, which is broken into a clear, detailed schedule for parental perusal every Monday. TSL Adventure's summer programming has now expanded to include afterschool care and early-childhood education with diverse age-integrated and age-separated activities.
