Chimney Corners Camp celebrates the values that help girls and women be the best that they can be.
Above all, Chimney Corners Camp is a girl's world where who a girl is and can become is respected and valued. Girls explore their own interests, work at friendships, build confidence in themselves and learn to be their true self.
Chimney Corners Camp practice the core values of Honesty, Caring, Respect and Responsibility and activities, camp stories, readings at chapel and meals all remind us of these values that we hold dear. We express these values with Camp Mottos which remind us of the words and actions that make our values come alive.
The CCC version of Agape is inspired by a sermon by Martin Luther King Jr. and speaks to our connection to others and the need to respect each other in all the wonderful complexities of differences among us. Also expressed as "ubuntu" we recognize that if we are to succeed it cannot be at the expense of another. We are connected and must ensure that we are all respected and cared for.
The power of our attitude is great both in meeting our personal goals but also in our impact on others. Each day we approach the day with the best attitude we can. We choose our mood and our actions every moment and try our best to make a choice to be positive.
These words are drawn from a favorite camp song and remind us that we need to share who we truly are. We have a magic within us that we pass on to other through being true to who we are. We have tremendous power when we choose to be the best we can be and share our light with others. Chimney girls speak up, know their mind and share that with others.
A favorite saying of Evelyn Smith, one of our founding mothers of camp, this expression reminds us to share our happiness with others.
