The Eye of the Eagle at Summer Camp


Show your camp staff you get what matters

In Celtic Spirituality, people said to have ‘the eye of the eagle’ were, like the great bird soaring across thesky, able to see the big picture and yet still focus in on the tiniest details.

Years ago, Travis and I created The Eye of the Eagle award.  At the end of each week, our senior staff met and determined which one of our counselling staff had gone that extra mile that week and had given their campers the most amazing camp experience.  While the senior staff was meeting, the counsellors also met to decide who among the senior staff would be recognized for making a real difference.

This was a superb way to recognize those people at camp who may not always be the loudest or funniest people but who worked tirelessly to notice all the small stuff, build community and take care of your camp family.
