How To Be

In the beginning of each summer camp session our campers learn about the Four Core Values (Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Caring) and our Camp Motto ‘I’m Third’ (God First, Others Second, I’m Third).  
Throughout the week we see campers letting others go before themselves, sharing bug spray, making their bunks and so much more.
At closing campfire the campers are challenged to take what they learned and share it with the world.

First up in the ‘How To Be’ series is (Drum role please)... Caring!

Here are some reminders and tips on how to be caring.
It can be as easy as:
·      Hold the door open for someone
·      A simple smile
·      Be inclusive toward others
·      Asking ‘How are you today?’
·      Share your positivity with everyone you meet
·      Be a great friend

Small acts of kindness and showing somebody that you care can go a long way!

Let us know what you tried and how it worked!  Tell us some of your ideas.  We love hearing from you.

Stay tuned for Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and I’m Third!
