Social Emotional Skill Building


Created by Lindsey Kessler and Hope Phillips

The purpose of this portion of social emotional skill building for young campers is for their counselors to
model and normalize mental health. Often, many campers get the idea that their counselors are perfect.
This activity, which is to be hung in a well seen area of the cabin (ex: bathroom stall), is meant to show
campers and remind counselors that all emotions are normal. This is also the start for the youngest
campers to gain self-awareness, begin regulating their own emotions, gain perspective and begin problem solving. This is also a positive activity for newfound co’s as they will get to know each other on a deeper level and hold themselves and each other accountable for their emotions and expressions when working with the campers.
