Program Goals

Centering Camper Well-being

Beaver makes learning fun. Campers experience so much joy at camp, they may not realize all of the ways that they are growing and further developing skills.

climbing-wallEach of Beaver’s programs is designed around important goals that further camper skill growth and center well-being:

  • Socialization: Making connections and maintaining relationships
  • Independence: Learning to become increasingly self-reliant
  • Teamwork: Working effectively in groups 
  • Confidence: Believing that they can be successful
  • Curiosity for Exploration: Demonstrating interest, inquisitiveness, and eagerness to learn new things
  • Responsibility for Self and Others: Learning to be accountable for their own actions and developing a sense of responsibility for their impact on others
  • Problem-Solving Agency: Knowing that they have the ability to develop strategies to address and resolve challenges
  • Belonging: Feeling supported and a sense of connection and inclusion at camp

And, if what Beaver parents/caregivers tell us is any indication, it’s working. Through parent/caregiver survey feedback, the data shows us reported camper growth in each of these skill domains.
