Each One Of Us Has A Name: Poetry Magnets and the Power of Words

Type: Programs
Topics: Cornerstone

Our words, whether in conversation or on Twitter, have power and meaning — not just for the intended audience, but for us too!  The words we speak, especially in the intense 24/7 environment of summer camp, can profoundly affect self-esteem, group unity, and individual relationships.  In this elective you will use refrigerator magnet poetry to explore the intended and unintended effect of your words, and explore a new way to build trust and safety within the cabin community. -By Noam Katz
