As we embark on our 26th summer of teen tours, we thought it would be fun to share the transformation that our brochures have taken over the years. Seriously – check out our first cover below. Since it was our first year, we had to go with this incredibly uncreative solid black cover because we didn’t have any pictures from previous summers. The covers below show just how much the graphic design of our brochures has evolved over the years. We’ve definitely come a long way! Are you on one of our covers? If so, let us know who you are!
Pop culture has changed so much since Rein Teen Tours started back in 1986. Styles and trends have come and gone, and the Rein Teen Tours brochure covers have certainly showcased them all! Look carefully at the covers to spot the signs of the times from the 80’s and 90’s. Keep your eyes peeled for: scrunchies, big puffy Champion sweatshirts, high striped socks, an original Depeche Mode concert tshirt, overalls and lots of big hair! Who are we kidding – twenty years from now, we’ll be looking back at the brochure from 2011 and wonder, “what we were thinking?”
As a fun bonus, we’ve included the top movies from each of the brochure years that we’ve profiled below. What’s your favorite quote from the movies listed below?
