In a challenging world, the Lakeland Hills Family YMCA day camp tries to guide children in making the right decisions, building self-esteem, and displaying empathy and compassion. Our staff promises to demonstrate and develop the Four Core Values of the Y in all aspects of working with the children, but staff alone cannot make the difference.
A strong partnership between 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 Y. Our day camp seeks 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.
