  • To develop an appreciation and care of the environment and nature.
  • To provide opportunities to develop leadership skills.

Outcomes

  • Develop more social skills that will aid them in making friends through C.A.M.P, “Don’t Laugh at Me” activities, interpersonal relations (bullying), the word of the week, and conversation time.
  • Demonstrate leadership qualities through participation in group planning and/or group games, opening and closing ceremonies, group skits, and in camper in transition (CIT) activities.
  • Campers will be better able to make choices and to try something they have never done before through the elective and team challenge programs.
