Endless Summer Fun

Bridgeport Y Camp PictureCharacter Values Count!

The counselors and campers will concentrate on the  values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility in everything they do.

Each day the counselors will give “shout outs” to the campers who have shown positive character traits throughout the day.

The character values will be reinforced through colored beads; red for caring, blue for honesty, yellow for respect and green for responsibility.

Campers will receive and collect the colored beads to make their own character value necklace.

The more values– the more beads– it all counts!
