“Ssh…Mike’s up…”
This is often what one hears from among the campers when, at the end of breakfast, I stand up to begin the morning announcements.
And then, perhaps, this: “Happy dates day, everyone!”  “Happy dates day, Mike!  Hey!”
“Our first announcement this morning comes from our Office Staff.  Here’s our Registrar, Shelley.”
“Are you ready campers?  The dates for summer 2015 have been set, and we are ready to share them with all of you so that you can begin, now, to plan your summer with us!  How exciting is that?  [Loud and long cheering from the entire Dining Hall!] Here they are”:

Sending children to a residential, or day camp, builds resilience.
Published on February 5, 2012 by Michael Ungar, Ph.D. in Nurturing Resilience.
I recently spoke to 300 camp directors about how to make children more resilient to life stress.
Summer camps, we discovered, are perfect places to help children optimize their psychosocial development...
