At Gold Arrow Camp, we strive to not only provide our campers with memorable, happy, and life-changing camp experiences during the summer, but also to provide resources to our camp families that enhance our campers’ lives year-round. On Target, our Magazine for Camp Families, is an annual resource we provide for that purpose.
In each edition, we feature articles from parenting experts, best-selling authors passionate about positive youth development, and long-time staff members.
Our newest On Target features articles and excerpts on several topics that directly impact our children’s (and our own) happiness. In “10 Tips for Discovering Your Child’s Strengths,” Jenifer Fox shares her insights on how to focus on our kids’ strengths rather than their weaknesses. An excerpt from Sonja Lyubomirsky’s book, The Myths of Happiness, offers research-based wisdom about what really makes us happy. And our favorite happiness expert, Christine Carter, shares with us “How to Raise Truly Kind Kids.” From Sunshine Parenting (Camp Director Audrey “Sunshine” Monke’s blog), we share a few of the most popular posts from 2015, including “5 Steps to Help Kids Resolve Conflicts” and “10 Parenting Tips from Camp Counselors.”
In addition to authors and experts, the 2016 On Target features articles by long-time staff members, directors, a pediatrician, and artwork from one of our very own campers!
