Creating Safe & Welcoming Spaces for All

Inclusion and belonging are more than diversity statements and scholarships. They're about ensuring that everyone has what they need to get to camp, that everyone feels like an insider at camp, that people see their own culture at camp, and so much more. We talk a lot about this and will keep talking about this.

Several of these resources talk about the Hidden Curriculum, so what is the hidden curriculum? The secret code of a place. So, you find yourself at someone's house, huh? Now, should you gracefully remove your shoes? And where do you sit to eat? At camp, this might look like the way to line up, the songs we sing, and so much more. Illuminating this helps everyone belong.

AND there's so much more to inclusion and belonging at camp. Keep growing, keep learning, and keep making change.
