Commitment to our goals, makes us unique
There are many aspects of our group programming that make us unique, but it is our commitment to our goals that set us apart. In order for a camper's experience to be meaningful, the activities need to be compelling and fun. With that thought in mind, our staff work with the formula of group dynamics + activity = goal achieved. For example, during our sports group the main idea is for the group to experience being part of a team sport such as soccer, baseball, kickball, and basketball. Within our time together, we do not simply dive into a large game, but rather tweak or adjust many drills or sports related activities. Decisions on specific games are based on reading the individual skill levels and the engagement of the group. In short, last week the engagement level of the group was high + half court team game = successful basketball experience.
