Make Friends

Make Friends

One of our primary goals at Gold Arrow Camp is for campers to make friends. In practice, this means we intentionally focus on helping campers learn and practice friendship skills that equip them to make friends and be a good friend.

Here are some of the specific social skills we focus on at camp:

  • Introducing Yourself
  • Celebrating Friends’ Victories
  • Ask Questions
  • Practicing Kindness
  • Making “Friendship Bids”
  • Giving Compliments & Building Our Friends Up
  • Listening Actively
  • Staying Calm
  • Reading Facial Expressions
  • Resolving Conflicts
