Journeys and Joy at Camp Weequahic

Posted Tuesday, July 10th, 2018 by

“Journeying is the act of traveling from one place to another—not a moment of arrival. You get ‘there’ by being committed to the journey.” – Bernadette Jiwa

We are all on a journey, we are all going ‘somewhere.’ The questions are, “Where do we want to go?  What will we choose to guide us? And, what would be important to bring along?”

I hope that by this point, our returning families know the values that guide Weequahic – Gratitude, Attitude, and Courage.

What to bring along? Well…I’m sure there are lots of things that would be useful. Personal qualities like independence, curiosity, patience, and empathy would be great. So would a sense of being able to learn and adapt. And don’t forget friends. They can make any journey not only successful but fun as well.

Hm…. Sounds like we pretty much have everything we need here at Camp Weequahic to get where we want to go – a destination (creating awesome), values to guide us, a place to practice and experiment, and lots and lots of friends!
