Our GROUP curriculum promotes the power of teamwork centered around the importance of the individual. Each GROUP session is designed to achieve a specific objective which ranges from cooperation and communication to acceptance and understanding.
During the first week of camp each group begins the process of identification and bonding by creating their group’s name. Some of our most notable group names have been “Disco Superstars,” “Fire-Breathing Super Chickens,” “Happy Rainbow Elephants,” “Purple Puppy Pandas” and “Supersonics”.
Each GROUP session is led by the group’s Division Head. It has a designated theme, a cooperative activity and a wrap-up discussion. Under the direction of the Division Head, GROUP reinforces our beliefs about what it means to be an Elmwood camper.
