From Friday, July 12th –
“The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” – Coretta Scott King
Today’s theme of Positive Community served as a perfect reminder for both campers and staff alike here at Miniwanca. As the end of the week approached, our community reflected on what it means to be a helpful, contributing member while here at camp. Respect towards others and their belongings, stewardship of common spaces, and giving others authentic praise were just a few examples of how we build and maintain a positive community. We also strive to take these learned behaviors with us once we leave Miniwanca, in order to build positive communities all over the world.
The reflective practices were balanced with some good ol’ physical fold activities as well today. Campers enjoyed a hike to the Well Site for a swim in Lake Michigan. After returning and eating a delicious dinner, a raucous round of WankaCart had Quads racing for victory. Everyone was good and tired as we heading back to the bays for cabin check and lights out.
