So, how does the camp experience play a role in one’s success? In the book True North, Bill George and Peter Simms write that EQ starts with self-awareness of your life story and the crucibles you have experienced.

At camp, one has the opportunity to participate in three requirements for self-awareness.

  1. One has the opportunity to experience real life/world experiences, including leadership. You are unplugged.
  2. One has the opportunity to reflect about those experiences and consider ways to improve. You are present.
  3. One has the opportunity for group interactions that enhances your chances to share and receive feedback. You are a part of a team.

And how true it is! We intentionally live out these principals at Sonlight every day.
