Opening and Closing Ceremonies. Acknowledging the start and end of each day with a ritual gives campers the chance to assemble as one large group, participate in fun and engaging routines, recognize and celebrate campers and counselors, and experience an inclusive and positive social environment.

Huddle Group. Getting to know campers’ names, interests, and qualities during small-group interactions creates a positive social environment, promotes friendships among campers, and reduces and resolves behavior conflicts and bullying.

Variety Activities. Exploring a range of activities throughout the camp session allows campers to discover their interests and talents. Variety activities tend to be more general than mastery activities, focused less on skill building and more on trying new things and connecting with others.

Crew Service. Cleanup time or other responsibility activities encourage campers to feel a sense of ownership for maintaining the camp. Crew activities offer a simple and fun way to build character through the Y’s core values: caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.

Mastery Activities. Giving campers a chance to select an activity to practice at least three times during a camp week helps them build a sense of achievement. When campers return to an activity with a clear goal in mind, they are able to build skills in that activity.
