Our camp prides itself on not only providing kids with a summer of fun and adventure, but simultaneously preparing them to be compassionate, well-rounded adults. In all that we do, we focus on relationship-building and universal values like respect, perseverance, and kindness. While we strive to live out these values every day at camp, we also have a special day devoted to them— the Day of Caring and Sharing!
On our annual Day of Caring and Sharing, campers are given the opportunity to do something good for those in need. Activities in the past have included holding a carwash and donating the proceeds to charity, visiting nursing home residents, preparing sandwiches and cookies for homeless Staten Islanders, making cards for homebound seniors, collecting pajamas and food for families in need, and holding a walk-a-thon to support Sunrise Day Camp for kids with cancer.
One of the highlights of our summer, the Day of Caring and Sharing reminds our campers that it is better to give than to receive and demonstrates that we can all make a positive impact on the world around us. This year, it’s more important than ever that we celebrate these values as we see the power of lending a helping hand in times of need. We are so proud of our campers for participating in this special day and can’t wait for this year’s Day of Caring and Sharing!
