1 Summer Camp T-shirt
At the end of our 4 night/5 day summer camp, each camper receives a t-shirt that they can get signed by team leaders and fellow campers. This souvenir is a way for children to remember all the things they learned at camp and take them into their day-to-day lives. Many repeating campers come to summer camp and weekend programs wearing their past camp t-shirts. Sometimes they need to squeeze into their beloved t-shirt years after they have outgrown them.
1 Team Fire at Summer Camp
On the first night of the camp, teams work together to build a small fire, lighting up the campsite with a warm glow. Many campers experience their first roasted marshmallows using this fire. Many laughter and newly learned English phrases echos in the dark, like “My marshmallow is perfect!” and “My marshmallow is on FIRE!” This is the first opportunity for some campers to find themselves at ease, as the team spends this relaxing and fun time together.
Summer camp meals for 1 camper
At summer camp, only those who want to help in the kitchen come to help. And many “first time” happens surrounding the meals: first time using knives, first time cooking, first time trying certain food, first time washing their own dishes, first time finishing everything on their plate. The meals at camp provide so many learning opportunities in so many ways.
1 Camp Fire at Summer Camp
The campfire on the last night of camp is one of the most special camp activities. Everyone, including campers and staff, shares their most memorable camp moment with the entire group, then throw a piece of firewood into the fire. Those who cannot usually speak in front of others find themselves able to share their feelings at the campfire. By sharing and listening to others on the fun and challenging moments that they all shared together, it helps take back and weave the camp experience through their day-to-day lives.
