Camp is a way for kids to become their best self and grow in character. We have found the Raggers program is a meaningful and useful tool for some children and are proud to offer it to those 12 years or older. Many younger campers look forward to becoming a Ragger because they have seen older campers wearing Rags and acting as role models around camp. Rags are taken home to be worn or placed in sight as a reminder of the goals the child has set for themselves. They can be brought back to camp year after year to be worn. Because it is a completely personal experience, the child decides when they have met their goals and are ready to take on a new Rag with new goals. It can become a lifelong practice of self-improvement, goal setting, and service to others if they so choose.

You'll see many staff wearing Rags at check-in and check-out because they are proudly becoming their best self as well. If you have any questions about what Raggers is or why they have a Rag, feel free to ask them.
