Tradition: At the end of each camp retreat, the campers and counselors close with Tradition. The camp schedule is designed in such a way, to keep the campers busy at all times of the day and evening. Tradition allows everyone a chance to slow down and focus on what the weekend meant to him or her. Campers in each rotation group gather for mini-tradition and are all given the chance to speak about fears they overcame, lessons they learned, and their overall favorite memories of camp. Then each group selects 3-4 campers to represent the group at regular tradition in front of the whole camp. Tradition also allows the campers to hear and reflect on their fellow campers experiences at camp. It also helps to break down the fear of public speaking.
