In a challenging world, the Sussex County YMCA camps try and guide children in making the right decisions, building self-esteem and displaying empathy and compassion towards others. Our staff promise to demonstrate and develop the Four Core Values of the YMCA in all aspects of working with the children, but staff alone cannot make a difference.
A strong partnership between all parents and staff, including the support and reinforcement of our values must be present in order to foster the growth of happy, confident and caring children. The Y's commitment to character development makes it valuable to the camp community.
All aspects of programming and interaction highlight the Four Core Values of the YMCA.
Our camps seek to promote these values in every experience and relationship.
CARING: To be sensitive to the well being of others and to love others.
HONESTY: To tell the truth; to act in such a way that you are worthy of trust; to have integrity and to make sure your
choices match your values
RESPECT: To treat others as you would have them treat you; to value the worth of every person, including yourself
RESPONSIBILITY: To do what is right, what you ought to do; to be accountable for your behavior and obligations
