We must respect individuality. Each person is gifted with unique learning styles, talents, aspirations, strengths and weaknesses. All of these characteristics must be recognized and respected.
Self-awareness is a product of change and risk.
Teamwork and multiple approaches effectively solve problems.
Physical and emotional safety is our highest priority.
Experiential Education fosters important life skills: communication, cooperation, and empathy.
"Camp Nuhop Magic" should generate closeness, understanding, sharing, and trust.
