Thanks for a wonderful summer!

Core Values

Background

Prior to the first summer of camp in 1962, Founder Ruth Huff turned to God in prayer with the question, “Shall we have guidelines for training counselors?”  Her inspired listening led to the CedarS Five Fundamentals, which remain the foundation of our staff training today.  These guidelines provide a Bible-based sense of identity, contribution, purpose, growth, and joy.

The Five Fundamental Concepts of CedarS are:

1

Identity

We regard each individual at camp as a child of God, who reflects alertness, joy, peace, ability, love...

2

Contribution

We respect each individual Christian Science young person as future active worker in the Christian Science movement.

3

Purpose

We stand firm in our desire to use Christian Science in all of our actions and to be good examples.

4

Growth

We believe that all have certain interests and talents, and we want to do all we can to further these and at the same time to introduce new activities and interests.

5

Joy

We expect to make camping at the CedarS fun!

CedarS Purpose

“The Purpose of The CedarS is to give each camper an appreciation of spiritual sense and an abundance of wholesome, joyous activity.”
