Camp after camp: friendship value at overnight camp

Some time after summer camp fun is done and all the best stories are recollected, your camper becomes melancholy without a reason.

overnight summer campsSound familiar? No worries, because your adventurer is actually going through camp homesickness – otherwise known as missing camp as one might miss home. Is it bad? Not really – it’s a sign that your adventurer has enjoyed camp life and had the time of their life with fellow adventurer , and after a few days of recovery will spread the benefits of camp to other aspects of their life: school, friends, and family. Positivity, willingness to explore and try new things, independence (and even the initiative to fold own clothes!) – such joy should be accepted, shared, and returned back to the adventurer for best results.

How to maintain and encourage the spirit of adventure? We heard so many times that campers meet up in Toronto right after camp and throughout the year – watch camp videos, look through photos, laugh together, and remember fond memories. Every year lots of DiscoveryLand Camp’s buddies reconnect to sign up for the same session. Camp veterans know that living in overnight summer camps and doing a lot of common activities together for 2 plus weeks allows you to form close friendships that will last for many years.

Moreover, we, DiscoveryLand Camp staff, have reunions twice after camp ends – to discuss the best moments, favorite activities, find areas for improvement for the next season… and sing favorite camp songs and just to enjoy our awesome counselors’ team.

overnight summer camps ontarioDiscoveryLand Camp is called a truly leadership camp, and one of the goals we have is to develop the very valuable network for young people – a network based on challenges that they have to overcome and the moments of victory and happiness they had. If that sounds interesting, greatly recommend the completion of Leadership In Action – a unique course full of character building and self-improvement moments.

Make your life easier with a positive attitude

I regret that I have no shoes until I saw a man without a feet.
Appreciate what you have, rather than feeling sorry for yourself.

 

Leadership Camp TorontoWe are going to discuss many distinctive characteristics of successful leaders at the leadership course in DiscoveryLand Camp this year. Appreciation of what you already have is known as one of the keys to success. Indeed, life is a lot easier and more enjoyable with a positive attitude.

Robin Sharma- the author of The Leader Who Had No Title- in his recent video suggested that “Writing in a journal is a great way to record gratitude“. By doing that, you highlight and focus on your blessings, the good things in your life, in your mindset. In simple words…

Most of us have food on our table. Most of us have fresh drinking water. Most of us can breathe fresh oxygen. Most of us have people we love. Most of that us have work that matters. Most of us have all these incredible blessings that most people would never imagine having.

And yet we curse the fact that theres too much traffic. We get upset about a difficult conversation with a hard customer. We stumble as we move towards closer our goals or our mission, and we get frustrated. And to make little things into big things and we start developing this mindset where little problems become problems. And as you know, a problem is only a problem if you choose to see it as a problem.

And what Im suggesting to you is recording gratitude in your journal. Shift your mindset so you start to see things you didnt notice around you. And everything becomes a miracle. And even this day becomes a blessing.

~Robin Sharma, How to Keep a Journal

Have a good day everyone! See you soon at DiscoveryLand Camp!
