Core Value #6: Respect Individuality


No shortage of personality here!

At MKDC we feel it is very important that everyone in our camp community is comfortable showing off who they really are. We spend a great deal of time and effort creating a camp culture that accepts our little individual quirks and differences – including those of our staff!

For our campers and staff, this looks like:

  • campers are free to enjoy their favorite activities, regardless of gender stereotypes;
  • put-downs, practical jokes, and bullying are never ok;
  • being creative and silly is encouraged;
  • friendships can’t be forced – but respect is always expected;
  • staff have the freedom to contribute their own skills and hobbies to camp programming.

When campers and staff feel safe letting their personalities shine through – that’s when the fun & friendship really starts!
