Group building and unity
At various periods throughout the day, the campers participate in Group Time activities, where the campers and the counselors engage with one another and create a sense of group community characteristic of the Sewataro experience. Every Sewataro camper is placed into a group of campers and counselors that will share their Sewataro summer together. Group Time often takes place at the beginning of the day upon the campers’ arrival, the middle of the day during the lunch period, and at the end of the day at Water and Cookies. Group Time allows the campers to grow closer together with their group-mates through group activities that can range from tag to trivia to team-building challenges, etc. Counselors run Group Time with the goal of incorporating every member of the tribe into a cohesive group that shows teamwork, cooperation, friendliness, and fun. Group Time is another one of the many Sewataro activities that bring to life the mission of the camp by fostering the Sewataro community.
