Pennies For Peggie is gaining momentum
Every summer, YMCA Camp Twin Lakes has the opportunity and the responsibility to provide a unique outdoor experience for over 2,000 children. During this one week adventure, there are several goals and desired outcomes for each participant.
Campers will be faced with challenges throughout the week and they will have the opportunity to display the 5 core values. During the program debriefs and cabin chats, there will be focused discussions on the importance of these character traits. Verbal recognition will be made when campers display one of these values, so others can recognize their growth in this area.
For many campers, this will be their first time away from home. Most children are very limited in their ability to make their own decisions, as their parents, teachers and coaches do most of the decision making. During their week at camp, participants will make decisions about their schedule, their involvement in keeping a clean cabin, when to take a shower and what to eat. We have an amazing opportunity to guide their decision making process and give them tools to make good decisions.
Camp presents a wonderful opportunity to create new friendships that can last a life time. Camp staff must be intentional in creating friend-making activities and times throughout the week.
Campers will live in the outdoors and nature for one week. During this time, they will participate in programs such as nature, hiking, swimming and astronomy in the outdoors. Each of these program guides will have an opportunity to whet the appetite of campers, and give them a chance to explore further.
