Respect is a virtue like no other.
At camp, we learn to respect ourselves, others and the environment around us.
We can respect ourselves by making sure we take all the steps to be healthy, both mentally and physically.
We can respect others by treating them like equals and acting with empathy.
As for the environment, we must make a conscious effort to treat it with respect so that it can be preserved and enjoyed in the future.
Without respect it is impossible to forge strong relationships with others.
With respect we can forge a community stronger than any other.
“Respect for ourselves guides our morals; respect for others guides our manners.” –Laurence Sterne
