Happy Wednesday! And Happy Core Values in Action Day! 

January is the month of celebrating honesty and putting it into action! What have you been doing to celebrate honesty? 

One way we celebrated honesty at Winter Camp was through the classic camp ice breaker, Two Truths and a Lie. With a group of people, everyone must go around and say two truths about themselves and one lie that they made up about themselves. For example, if it was my turn I could say “I live at Frost Valley all year long, My family has a dog, and I am a Patriots Fan”. Then everyone in the group needs to guess to see which one is the lie! Can you figure it out? Play this game with friends, and family, or maybe play it around the dinner table tonight! 

Honesty can be so many things, so it is important to talk about. At camp, honesty comes when our campers feel comfortable with their counselors, and connected to their bunk mates so that they are able to be open to others and true to themselves. What does honesty look like to you at home? 

If you have a story about how you’ve put Honesty into action, please send them to me at lhutchinson@frostvalley.org. I’d love to see pictures, letters, videos, or drawings about all the ways you are HONEST outside of camp. 

Peace, love, and bibbley!
