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!
