Camper of the Week has been a long and important tradition at Point O’Pines. Each week a camper is chosen from each age group and announced in front of the entire camp at our Sunday morning camp fire. Every week there is a theme for the campers: “friendliness,” “cooperation,” “camp spirit,” “generosity,” “honesty & integrity,” “positive attitude,” and finally “citizenship.”
The area heads meet with the general counselors and specialty heads to discuss which campers best exemplify that week’s theme characteristic. They then vote for the campers who might be honored as campers of the week. The chosen campers receive a certificate, ice cream, and, of course, the accolades of the other girls. They also receive a special shirt which can be worn by them forever as uniform which signifies that that camper has been a “Camper of the Week.” Being honored as a camper of the week is a very big honor and we are so proud of those who achieve this recognition.
