We Are Welcoming … CHT feels like a home away from home. The twists and turns of the road into Camp remind us to take a breath, slow down and enjoy the ride – we are waiting for you at the end. Welcome home.
We Accept You … We welcome different abilities and know that makes the world a more interesting place. We value every job and every role. We include, we adapt and we are a safe place to be your best self.
We Let You Choose Your Challenge … It is OK to fall, it is OK to laugh, it is OK to get up and dance. At CHT, even our hills present challenges we can all overcome together. We strive for challenge and resilience and grit – we do not always take the easy road.
We Communicate With Compassion and Empathy … We connect through cabin chats (& walkie-talkies!) We share our appreciation for each other through Trail O’ Grams. We reveal our hopes and dreams in our closing Wishboat ceremony.
We Want You To Lean on Me … We build community. We hold each other up. We all have a role and a sense of responsibility in contributing to a positive camp community.
We Grow … “The earth is good to me, and so I thank the earth …” We never stop learning. We continue to develop new skills to improve our Camp. We try new foods from the Camp Kitchen and garden too. We embrace our Book of Firsts.
We Unplug … to connect with each other and our natural world. We model positive interpersonal relationships and celebrate our powerful sense of place – 73 acres of amazing natural space.
We Are Proud of You … Everyone is cheered at the Talent Show! We have fun and celebrate small successes in our journey to achieve big. We are positively changing the lives of children with medical needs, their families, our staff, counselors, volunteers, medical team and donors. We find this to be joyful work.
We Keep CHT Weird … Just be yourself! Put a nut between your toes. Sing about a donut shop. Holler about the Little Red/Med Wagon. Let Princess Pat hear you sweet voice.
We Turn the World Around … We are a team. We work together to achieve common goals and support each other every step along the trail. We know you will be inspired by your CHT experience and will share a piece of “Camp Magic” with your community and continue to make a positive impact in your school, hometown and beyond.
“Go back to the mountain, and turn the world around.”
