TIGER represents the 5 core values that we believe create an exemplary Camp community member. Those 5 value are Teamwork, Integrity, Generosity, Enthusiasm and Respect. Campers will be encouraged and motivated to display these 5 qualities through continuous recognition of their efforts. When a Counselor, Division Head, Director of any other Leadership Team member sees a Camper exhibiting exemplary TIGER qualities, the staff member will award the Camper a “Fuzzy” or a TIGER Camper sticker. Additionally, each day, one Camper in every group will be recognized as the “Camper of the Day” and be awarded a special certificate along with a “Fuzzy”. That award is further reinforced by the explanation of TIGER values and clearly explaining why that Camper earned “Camper of the Day” today.
At the end of each week, one Camper from each Division who consistently models exemplary TIGER characteristics will be given a special Meadowbrook TIGER Award. Additionally, every Friday, one Division is awarded the “TIGER Cup” in recognition of outstanding demonstration of TIGER qualities and values throughout the entire week. We continue to instill these values by recognizing group collaborative efforts through clean bunk awards, (among other awards) to recognize the continuing efforts of our Campers contributions to the greater good of our Camp community.
Our TIGER Program is turned into an even bigger success when our Parents partner with us. Help teach our Campers (your children) how to be a responsible member of our Camp community.
