Happy New Year’s Eve, everyone!!!!img_2778
What an amazing year we’ve had at Frost Valley YMCA. From one of the biggest and best Summers we’ve ever had, to the amazing week we are having at Winter Camp, 2016 is one to remember. I have enjoyed every moment spent with our camp family, and I am excited for the future and Summer 2017.

 

Today at Winter Camp, we were able to celebrate our Core Values with an activity led by some of our 2016 CiTs who are applying to be staff members this summer. With Frost Valley’s 8 Core Values as the heart of the activity, our Winter Campers were able to discuss and learn about what our core values mean to each other, and put them into action right here at camp. From designing a poster to teach people about compost and recycling, to random acts of kindness, to playing “two truths and a lie”, and to the creation of a diversity poster, our campers were able to put the core values in action and create artwork for camp!

The pictures that are part of this blog were taken throughout the activity and put a smile on my face. I am excited to share them with you, because I think they perfectly describe the community that we have in Frost Valley YMCA.

2017 is here! And it is the year for us to continue to grow, continue to be the best versions of ourselves, and continue to make a positive difference in the world. Here’s to keeping Frost Valley in our hearts, and living out the core values in every moment. Happy New Year!

 

Peace, Love, Bibbley,
