The Purpose of Camp in a Child’s Life
The purpose of camp in a child’s life is to offer programs that encourage growth of the whole child in a setting that provides challenging activities while stressing good sportsmanship, values, and positive role models.
The Objectives of Camp
The Seasonal Camps at Holy Family have five objectives. Through its programs a camper will:
- Have fun!
- Grow in mind, spirit, wisdom and self-confidence
- Put core values into practice through growth of self, and growth of relationships with others which will lead to an acceptance of diversity
- Learn that leading is as important as following and that true maturity is learning when to do each
- Develop life skills that will stay with them as they grow
Camp Philosophy: “Here Growth is Measured in Days, Not Years”
This philosophy is so true! At the Seasonal Camps at Holy Family, campers learn so quickly and mature over just a short period of time. Our philosophy is that children will grow and learn to appreciate each other only through the example of adults that encourage this growth. Therefore, our camp is designed to offer role models, activities, and leadership opportunities that will encourage the growth of all of its members in mind, spirit, wisdom, and self-confidence while having a fun packed summer.
