Camp Carolina Philosophy
Carolina is a camp which boys learn to feel with their hearts, do with their hands and live together in the spirit of brotherhood. Our boys are taught to appreciate the simplicity of life, values of human relations, wonders of nature, importance of self reliance, respect for each other and our natural environment and the thrill of high adventure. A special effort is made to send every boy back home stronger in body, keener in mind, more appreciative of nature, nobler in character and more confident in themselves.
Our program is a balanced mixture of individual and team sports, nature, music, arts and crafts, high adventure and extreme sports. We value safety, respect and selflessness toward others. We work hard to maintain a well- rounded experience of health, fun and growth. Our camp leaders are guided to focus on the “teachable moment” – that time when a boy is enthusiastic, interested, searching for answers and having fun. We believe, and many educators agree, that more teachable moments arise during the long- term camping experience than during comparable stays at other types of educational institutions.
Camp Carolina is about adventure and meeting challenges head- on. It’s about the simple faith that anything can be accomplished through determination and enthusiasm. It’s about living fully, setting personal goals, making friends and enjoying accomplishments. Its mostly about fun – on the rivers, lakes, rocks, trails, courts, parks and fields, Our program is so diverse that boys can be successful here as long as they are willing to try.
