At the end of each camp day we have Acknowledgments. Each camper is encouraged to think back over the day and remember any good things that have happened; friendships made, personal or other peoples accomplishments, breakthroughs anyone had, thanks to anyone for doing a good deed, etc. It is to encourage more of the same to happen again.
In our society we have more of the habit to tell someone what they did wrong, not what they did right. Kids need empowerment and encouragement. We have had past campers come to us and say how important this part of camp was to them as a practice they want to continue in their lives.
