Big/Little Sister

big-little-sisterOur Big and Little Sister program brings the oldest and youngest campers together in friendship. All of the girls in Bunks 8, 9, and 10 are assigned a Big Sister from Bunk 14 or 15 over the winter. The Big Sisters contact their Little Sisters before camp begins by writing a letter or calling to say hello. Past experience shows that younger campers benefit greatly from this early contact; they are comforted by the fact that someone is at camp waiting to meet them. Big Sisters often spend both scheduled and leisure time with their little sisters. The girls share pool parties, make arts and crafts projects for each other and attend campfires together. This relationship encourages older campers to act as role models and helps the younger campers adjust to camp life.
