How We Effect Each Camper's Personal Growth with SMILE
One of the most beneficial parts of camp is the opportunity for each camper’s personal growth. It is the goal of our staff to create a safe, warm, and spirited environment where all campers can thrive.
Throughout the week, campers will be given an opportunity to practice SMILE:
SPORTSMANSHIP: Consistently demonstrates a supportive attitude towards other campers and remains positive during all activities
MINDFULNESS: Consistently aware of one’s self and the others around him or her; thoughtful with words and actions
INCLUSION: Consistently inclusive of others, works well with peers and is willing to lend a helping hand to fellow campers and staff
LEADERSHIP: Consistently demonstrates ability to be a leader and is willing to show originality in ideas and personality
ENTHUSIASM: Consistently participates in all aspects of camp and is excited to try new things
These character traits are ones that will be emphasized in everything we do at camp. Our campers look forward to being recognized for demonstrating these awesome values and will be proud to show off their well-deserved SMILE bands to their family and friends.
