Nelson Mandela once said, “Sport has the power to change the world.” Sport has the power to change camp, too. At camp, sports evoke a variety of emotions from love to hate, joy to despair; sports can create unity or division, delight or devastation. In this track, you will develop skills for creating a positive culture of sport at camp. You will uncover what people gain from participation in sports and learn how to be holistic educators of sport – recognizing that sport can be a powerful tool for achieving outcomes such as building cabin community, resolving conflict, teaching communication, or increasing self-esteem among campers.  (In this Speciality Track, you will spend time on the fields and courts, so please wear comfortable clothing and athletic shoes.) – By Mara Berde
