I noticed they had a few qualities in common. One was how their campers were able to leave their mark in the cabin. Both camps allowed each cabin group to make a sign for their session. Those signs decorated and painted by campers, hung proudly each cabin.
Campers must love coming back after a long school year to find their name on last year's cabin untouched. They had campers decorate on a separate piece of wood to hang in cabin so it wouldn't just appear like grafitti.
It's a tradition I'm considering starting at my camp. Do you let your campers leave their mark?
