Now with lyrics, re-watch the Juniors Program’s opening to TAF Night 2011. Cutest thing ever.


Visit and scroll down the right-hand sidebar to view them all 🙂

And let us know if anyone has the “Such Great Heights” act with Angela, Andrew, Kevin, and Andrew, because our camera battery had to be changed in the midst of their song and we weren’t able to record it 🙁

Enjoy folks! TAF 2011 Photo Gallery is our next project — that should be coming soon…


Since all of Youth was backstage preparing for their choir song, many of them weren’t able to watch what was many in tafLabs’ favorite performance of the evening, Will Leu’s Slam Poetry. So while all other TAF Night performances are edited and ready to upload (awesome!), we’re going to dedicate all of Friday to Will’s lyrical prose so you can watch it unencumbered in case you missed it.

Yay it’s Friday, Friday, and tomorrow we will upload more TAF Night, TAF Night…all uploaded on the weekennnndddddd 🙂 Check back tomorrow and Sunday for swing choirs and songs and more!

TAF 2011 Slideshow!!

So it’s been a long time coming. Sorry for the delay! We had some issues with some YouTube copyrights that we were sorting through. But we are extremely excited to finally bring this to you in full color – the way it was meant to be seen!

It was an amazing week, as always. We at tafLabs are always striving every year to find ways to make the slideshow new and fresh for you guys and this year we were fortunate to have a lot of new equipment and toys to play with to find new ways and angles to show off TAF in ways we haven’t looked at before. This year, we put a little bit more emphasis on showing more of the behind the scenes work that the sTAFf, speakers, board, and even the campers, do before and during TAF. We really hope that this year’s inclusion of more video helps to provide more context around some of the amazing photos taken by everyone, and tell the story of the week.

Special thanks to board members Dave, Bob, Alex, and Spencer for taking the time to go through Anna’s photo workshop to help us cover the various events. Additional thanks to the hardworking members of the labs photo and video logging team of Anna Wu, Tom Yu, Eric Wang, Harmony Chiu, Steve Wang, and Andy Chen, without whom this slideshow definitely would not have gotten done on time. Thanks to Chikuan, Joy, and Jason for keeping us well stocked and fed with an amazing array of food and treats. And while it is somewhat self-serving, thanks to Seaglass Cinema for the use of their equipment and skillsets. Go check them out on their facebook page and “like” them! *end shameless plug*

Without further delay, we present to you – TAF Slideshow 2011. Thanks for reading and stop by often!

TAF Night 2011: JAM CREW

We’ll be releasing the TAF Night acts in the next few days. More to come as quickly as our tafLabs computers can handle!


TAF 2011::THE ONES finished strong with an exciting evening of song, dance, and even some spoken word. It was a hot night on stage in Cordier as the Juniors, JH, and Youth Programs brought it in full force. We in tafLabs, with our own media “performances”, are gonna keep it up and bring you some more goodies to keep you company as you deal with the taf blues. We’ll start off with something any of you campers might be able to download onto your iPods for the ride or flight home, .mp3s of Alison Yeh’s cover of “Secrets” by One Republic and Melody Chen’s cover of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”.

ENJOY! More to come soon 🙂

Alison Yeh – Secrets
Melody Chen – Rolling in the Deep

TAF 2011: Daily Recap – Tuesday

TAF is so much fun. Like, totally the greatest time EVAR. But something that makes TAF more than just a fun summer camp is the incredible opportunity for personal growth, oftentimes through speaker sessions. This year at TAF we are blessed with three fantastic program speakers. Elizabeth Wang (Juniors), Tim Huang (Junior High), and Chris Regas (Youth) will all be leading sessions on this year’s theme of Leadership, and what it truly means to be a positive and influential leader. Hooray for sending your children to a learning camp! (Psst parents, tell your friends!)

TAF 2011: Daily Recap – Sunday

TAF is and has been a lot of many thing to many people. For most of us, the community and camaraderie is what brings us back to be surrounded by friends that have become family. And that is why, at the start of every year, it just feels like we’re coming home. So here is our simple Daily Recap for Sunday, July 31st, the first day of TAF 2011.

We’re looking forward to another wonderful week, with over two hundred returning and brand new campers and staff in the Juniors, Junior High, Youth, and tafLabs programs. Enjoy, and stay tuned for more content throughout the week!
