A Camp Based Upon Respect
Camp Massasoit provides campers ages five to sixteen with programs that are developmentally appropriate for each stage of their physical and cognitive growth. Striving to maintain a balance between skill development and sheer enjoyment, campers learn about the four areas of respect. The theme of respect is discussed every morning in opening ceremonies and is practiced throughout the camp day by our staff.
The staff guides the campers in positive decision-making while promoting self-discovery and self-appreciation across physical, cognitive, and social areas.
RESPECT YOUR COUNSELORS
The essence of this goal is for campers to appreciate the guidance of individuals who have been professionally trained and are genuinely interested in the camper’s personal development, whether it is here at camp or back within the classroom.
RESPECT YOUR PEERS
Counselors utilize the Challenge Course, cooperative games, and other team-based ventures to emphasize the value of diversity, trust, and peer leadership.
RESPECT THE ENVIRONMENT
Through learning about the natural environment around them, campers learn how important protection and conservation are to the future use of the land. A variety of outdoor educational activities offer children experiences that enhance their understanding of and commitment to the environment.
