QUICK HANDLE BASKETBALL CAMP RESOLVE Do you have it? “SET” Acronym of Success!!

So much of what I find today in the sports arena and generally in the world is a lack of resolve. We are easy to compromise, change course, look for something new, be non-committal , have our hands in too many things; all in the futile effort and hope that somehow we will gain utopia, satisfaction or success.  The short term, fair weathered philosophies always end up producing futile and anemic results.  Resolve is that attitude to stay the course, stick with a plan, be unwavering, never compromise your values, never look for short cuts that produce mediocrity, but

7 Vol-1; Issue 4

drive yourself, be tough on yourself, sell out and be consistent. The sad truth is so many promising athletes that have been a part of our program or other programs have developed a serious lack of resolve to finish the good fight and maximize their talents.  What could of been accomplished if only a serious spirit of resolve was maintained? There are usually countless opportunities missed because of a lack of resolve.  The classic is “if only I would of stuck with it”. This should not be part of one’s thinking.  You don’t want a life of regrets!  I believe many players are searching in the wrong places and following the wrong paths for success in basketball.  I know this because I have personally witnessed numerous players not reaching their full

potential and maximizing their talents because they didn’t have the resolve to stay the course and do the hard work necessary to be special and extraordinary. These tough words and straight talk come from a sincere motivation designed to instill hope and inspiration that will produce a direction of success and a firm foundation of resolve  that is unparalleled.  There is hope when going against the grain to be that special and unique player that blends old school work ethic with new school innovation and creativity.

The game of basketball can be set up and positioned for you to win. What you need is  resolve  to be the best and not settle for anything less! The following acronym, if memorized and applied, will help you develop the spirit and commitment of resolve. SET

S-single-minded: Flip flopping is the opposite of having single minded purpose to stay the course, keep on keeping on and finish what you started. Stay with a solid single-minded pursuit to help you maximize.

Think big, set high goals, go for greatness and stay the course. Overcome & be victorious! Vol-1; Issue 4


E-extreme: Anything worth achieving, especially as it relates to maximizing personally, will require a high level of extreme commitment, dedication and staying power to achieve maximum success. T-tenacious: A tenacious mind set is tough minded, not lazy and has a grinding attitude. The journey of achieving goals sometimes will be hard.  To have the ability to grind and “get er done” during tough times requires a tenacious spirit that never gives in or gives up! “SET” is unmovable, unshakable, never defeated or deflated and will carry the banner of resolve all the way to the victory line! Resolve in your heart to develop your plan and work your plan for the end result of the joy of maxing out! The “SET” mentality will help you make it happen. The Power of Resolve “SET”

Cover Story

Audubon Camp Do you have a young naturalist at home? Help cultivate that interest in nature by sending them to Camp Wildcat at Wildcat Glades Conservation & Audubon Center!  Located in Wildcat Park in Joplin, MO, we use the natural wonder and biodiversity of Shoal Creek and its adjoining habitats as natural classrooms. Wildcat Park is home to some of the last remaining globally unique chert glades, which gives campers an opportunity to experience this disappearing habitat. We meet at the Center each morning before we go outdoors to explore various habitats. Each day we learn about a different group of animals: birds, amphibians and reptiles, fish, and insects and other invertebrates. Other activities include fishing, canoeing and water quality testing. This four-day camp, held twice each summer, is led by professional naturalists with over 12 years of daycamp experience. Camp hours are 8am-noon, Tuesday through Friday. For the convenience of working parents, we will provide supervision from 7:30 am.-12:30 pm. With sessions for 6-8 years old and 9-12 years old, we make sure your child enjoys the outdoors at his appropriate age level and with peers that will be friends for life! A child to adult ratio of at least 10:1 ensures a safe and educational experience for all. Children should be in good physical condition and able to hike in summer weather. We will provide a snack, or they may bring their own from home. Camp fees are $100 per child for Audubon Center members, and $125 per child for nonmembers. Partial scholarships are available.

Theatre Camp of Montclair The Summer

One of the questions that parents ask me persistently, and with great concern, iswhether our acting camp will breed an arrogant diva-ish quality in their teen, tween or little one. I think that this is an excellent question that exhibit care and wisdom on the part of parents who query it. Here is my answer gleaned from the twentythree years I have been privileged to witness acting training bring out the best in young people: “Excellent Acting Training breeds Courage and Compassion in its participants. And Courage and Compassion are the antidotes to cynicism.”


“Compassion is the basis of morality.” Arthur Schopenhauer By Mary Ann Riel, M.A. Artistic Director, The Summer Theatre Camp of Montclair, New Jersey 973-746-8686

Remember the movie Jerry Maquire? Remember Jerryʼs words before his famous ʻyou complete meʼ declaration of love? Ruefully shaking his head, he states, “We live in a cynical world. A cynical world…” The truth of those words resonates ever more strongly today, and, cynicism, gentle reader, is the poison that kills creativity, kindness and confidence...especially in young, developing artists and can breed divas. Our modern-day cynicism protects us by cloaking us from some of the internetʼs myriad distractions that often appeal to our lower selves in its unending attempts to pick our collective pockets. But our cynicism also shields us from the vulnerability that any artist, performing or otherwise, needs to be creative and viable, no

more so than in a young, developing performer who can so easily be stifled under the weight of the glib, snark du jour so prevalent in contemporary media. This is where acting training can be a creative life-saver. My teaching experience reveals, time and again, that young people who enroll in our summer acting camp program are relieved to be encouraged to 驶let their hair down始 in an environment of safety, trust, fun, and camaraderie, while exploring the art and craft of acting and building acting skill with other likespirited people. In an environment of kindness, everyone learns to appreciate each others始 differences and to pick up valuable lessons from studying and understanding those differences, without dismissing, denying or disrespecting them. Parents of our summer camp participants, often comment that they themselves would like to join our program because it is engrossing, challenging, joyful and fun. They see the powerful metamorphoses, as their teen, tween or little one gains the life skills of discipline, focus, selfreliance and team work that are the inevitable offshoots of acting training. So is the character building that encourages respect, commitment, and kindness--traits that successful actors share and bring to their personal lives, as well. I so wish that I had known the truth of theatrical process, years ago when I was a raw, talented, but somewhat, misguided

performer who, I, sheepishly, confess had to work through some Drama Queenish qualities myself. Thank goodness for caring coaches and mentors who guided me to a more authentic, artistic and professional way of life! The value in my journey is that I learned the characteristics that are important onstage and off and have been privileged to inspire young actors to walk a higher path whilst embracing those lovely characteristics themselves. All acting training, including summer acting camps, are best served by teaching from a focal point of compassion and courage, from which artistry grows amongst engaged and caring participants and staff Whether your teen, tween or little one wants to be the next Broadway Star or simply has a newly acquired interest in acting, explore the option of a great summer acting camp program. The compassion and courage it can engender last a lifetime!

Camp Choconut Fun g in v a H st Ju n a h T re o M Is Camp

19 Vol-1; Issue 4

Summer camping is more than having your child stay busy while having a great time. Summer camping is a tremendous opportunity for growth, building selfconfidence, self-awareness, empathy and more. Children need time away from their parents. This time allows a child to choose for themselves what’s important to them; whether its what activity to do in the morning, if they really want to go swimming during free-time, what foods they will select during meal times and what friends they will choose, all without their parents watching their every step. And all happening in a safe environment, specifically created just for all this to happen. Children remember their times at summer camp during their entire lives. It’s that important.

Over the years summer camping caught on and actually considered a necessity in educational

learning (from the early ‘20’s through the ‘40’s), and the ranks of Camp Choconut grew. In the late 1930’s and early 1940’s Camp Choconut saw close to 140 campers during the summers. As one of the oldest camps in America, Camp Choconut continues to provide young boys and men the ‘out-of-doors’ experience, living in the Endless Blue Mountains of Pennsylvania, breathing fresh mountain air, camping, playing sports and swimming in a safe environment all while having fun without Game Box’s, Wii’s, PS2’s, PS3’s, PSP’s, i-pods, computers and television. Our focus may not be math or science, biology or language arts instead something just as important – living alongside one’s fellow man, socializing in a relaxed atmosphere with boys of similar age and adults other than parents, teachers, pastors and rabbis. We teach boys new skills. Skills that help develop one’s self-esteem, fulfillment in a job well done, success and accomplishment. Skills a boy will require as he moves from boyhood to manhood, from Mom and Dad’s home to college and a life beyond. In today’s world, young boys and men yearn for a sense of being, seek out role models, someone to emulate. But many have no one. With pop-stars, sports figures, and politicians falling from Vol-1; Issue 4


grace because of sex-scandals or drugs, boys today have no one to look to. Its nothing like 30 or 40 years ago when the atmosphere still resonated with names like President John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, and Neil Armstrong. Sport greats like Willie Mays, Joe Namath, Jack Niclaus, Bill Bradley, Walt Frazier, were every kid’s envy. As the ‘80’s came it brought Cable TV to the forefront with hundreds of channels to choose from; movie channels, sports channels and MTV. Kids were getting sucked into the popculture so fast that most companies couldn’t keep up with the “new” advertising to keep kids interested in their products during Saturday morning cartoons. The ‘90’s brought the Personal Computer into homes, video games, advanced gaming units with unprecedented forms of technologies; the Web, AOL, Chat Rooms, Email, Instant Messaging – the digital craze was upon us. Now, with everyone having cell phones that allow one to communicate through texting, with MySpace, and FaceBook the act and the art of socializing is fading. Kids today find themselves lacking in social skills that less than 15 years ago were an everyday norm.

Today’s Camp Choconut strives to close the gap from feeling lost, unsure of oneself in today’s world to self-confidence, self-reliance and integrity. By using the skills learned at Camp Choconut and developing

21 Vol-1; Issue 4

self-confidence and assurance in oneself, boys and young men find navigating through life and making difficult choices easier and more natural. Communicating with peers and adults in his life seems easier for him. Completing tasks, stick-to-itiveness, working a little harder becomes second nature. The Camp Choconut boy leaves camp each summer feeling confident about oneself and knows he has the skills to tackle the next year at school or the difficult time on a sports team, or problems at home with parents or siblings, or that neighborhood bully that just will not leave him alone.

Camp is more than a great time. It’s a time for a child to grow, separated from technology, learning social skills, developing self-reliance, becoming aware of the people around him, learning to live with others, socializing face-to-face with others, getting outdoors. Wouldn’t it be great to hear these words from your child when you pick them up from camp, “Camp was awesome”? And, you know what? You will.

eCamps Guide to Choosing the Right Summer Sports Camp With all the different sports camps offered each summer, choosing the right one has become a challenging task for parents. eCamps, a leading national network of sports camps, has provided some insightful tips to help families choose the best camps for their developing athletes. Whether it’s fine tuning the fundamentals or looking for a competitive training camp, it has become essential for parents to know just what to look for. eCamps Inc., one of the nation’s top networks of sports camps, understands this importance and has established their camps with these families in mind. eCamps offers lacrosse, tennis, field hockey, softball, and squash instruction at over 200 camp locations nationwide. Since their inception in 2001, over 50,000 athletes have had fun and become better players under their proven core instructional programs. Here is some advice provided by the company to help with the summer camp decision process:

23 & 16

Vol-1; Issue 4

1. Camper to Staff Ratio Matters There is nothing better than hearing from children as they pile into the van after camp saying, “Mom, coach helped me score a goal,” or “Dad, I’m so tired, I learned so much today”. Proper feedback and personalized attention is what each camper deserves from their sports camp experience. That is why eCamps is committed to maintaining a low instructor to camper ratio. For team sports there is an 8:1 camper to staff ratio and for individual sports a 5:1 ratio. Vol-1; Issue 4


2. Instructors Great instructors need organizational skills, positive coaching manners and ageappropriate skill development milestones. eCamps instructors have all excelled in their respective sports and are considered the finest in the country. 100 percent of the energetic instructors have had collegiate playing experience, with many going on to prove themselves at the professional and national level as well. What makes a great coach is not solely playing experience, but more importantly their commitment to coaching youth. eCamps’ directors are all Double Goal Certified by the Positive Coaching Alliance and have made a promise to educate life lessons through sport.

3. Facilities

Top-notch school accommodations and facilities are a prerequisite for a quality camp experience. Good food, easily accessible campuses, comfortable beds, good field conditions and fun social interaction are all necessities. While the main focus of a sport-specific training camp is on skill development and instruction, the overall camp experience is also defined by how the campers feel off the field or court. eCamps has chosen its 2012 camp locations based on the high standards of their camper’s families. They identify premier college campuses, prep schools and recreation facilities based on their commitment to providing the company with exceptional facilities - whether it be the newest turf fields, state-of-the-art tennis facilities, or glass-backed international squash courts.

25 Vol-1; Issue 4

4. Having Fun

Let us not forget that these are children and it’s summer time! Fun through sports education is at the heart of the eCamps sports network. It is important for campers and their parents to enter the camp experience with an open mind to enjoy, smile and gain life lessons along the way. Learning doesn’t end at the sound of a whistle. At camp, eCamps offers other activities (usually at night) to get campers away from their particular sport, relax, and provide some social balance to the day. Some of these activities include movie nights, pizza nights, putt-putt, ping-pong and karaoke. Making new friends is a time honored camp tradition and one which they embrace and nurture. As the program of your choice nears, don’t hesitate to check in with each camp regarding roommate requests, skill/ age break-downs, a final staff roster, etc. Campers may register for any program with openings right up until the start of camp, and eCamps is proud to be available 12 hours a day to answer any questions about our Vol-1; Issue 4

Keystone Camp Why is a girls’ camp important in today’s world? Attending camp provides a huge opportunity for personal growth. As a camp director, it is an honor and a privilege to watch a girl grow over the time they are with us at Keystone. Obviously, the longer the session, the more change we see, but so much is accomplished in such a short period of time. If you have never been to camp, I would ask you to reflect on your college experience. Remember the friendships, the sense of responsibility for yourself, your choices and the consequences of those choices. These are some of the same things camp provides to a girl, only much earlier in life. Imagine the sense of self and the strength a girl would take into college or into her first job with a foundation laid by a summer camp experience.

23 & 24 33 Vol-1; Issue 4

At Keystone, our girls are in a small camp community of 125 campers. This small community is very diverse, though, with campers from overseas as well as 20 different states. Perhaps most importantly, our camp program staff is entirely women. When the girls are learning, they are learning from other girls. We want our girls to know there is no limit to what they can accomplish. We want our girls to be able to come to camp to be who they want to be; not who they are expected to be. We all get to know one another. We are there to cheer each other on. We encourage one another to try new things, and we are there to catch each other should we fall. There is nothing more rewarding for me to watch than the coming together of this group of girls from all over the world. I see a girl overcome her fear of jumping a horse. I watch as a girl reaches the top of the climbing wall for the first time. I hear the joy a girl expresses after her first run down a river in a canoe. I see girls conquer

homesickness, and I often participate in this process. I watch as these girls excel, succeed and grow. I love watching each girl discover the only limit to what we can accomplish is the limit we impose on ourselves. Even more importantly, I get to participate in seeing these girls grow into capable young women. We average a high return rate from year to year, and many of our campers return year after year until they finish college. We have the pleasure of hiring many old campers as counselors so that they may share their camp experience with younger girls. Eighteen of our counselors last summer had been at Keystone for ten or more years. How lucky am I? Camp helps a girl define herself. Our girls keep the strength and identity they establish at camp for the rest of their lives. What more could you want for your daughter? -Page Ives Lemel Camp Director Vol-1; Issue 4


“One thing about Keystone that I really appreciate is that the atmosphere of community, companionship, and empowerment that not only exists fundamentally within the camp but reaches beyond the campers and affects the counselors, as well… I really feel like camp changed my life. I came to camp with a relatively low level of confidence, an anxiety about meeting so many new people, and worries about my abilities to be a good counselor. Last year, when it came down to it, I was worried that all I had to bring with me was enthusiasm, compassion, and a willingness to try new things. Before the end of camp I felt completely welcome in a place and situation that had once been alien to me. I had gained so much confidence (which has stayed with me all year and positively changed my school experience), I had formed strong lasting bonds with many of the other counselors, I had interacted with the most amazing campers who will continue to grow into amazing, confident young women, and I had witnessed positive, deep friendships built between girls. Most importantly, I had had the honor to be part of a program that fosters an inspiring sense of community between women, and by extension, the community at large. I left camp with confidence and a sense of peace that I didn’t know to be possible.”

-Tina , Wake Forest University “I will never forget all the great times I had with my cabin mates… just thinking about all our memories we had makes me laugh and smile :) I got to do things that I’ve never done before, like whitewater rafting and riflery! In addition, I have learned so much about being a leader and working together with people. I have applied those skills to my life back at home, and I am a stronger, more confident leader than I was last year. “

Sending your child off to For many parents, sending their child off to camp for the first time is a stress full experience. From separation anxiety to concern for your childs well being, sending your child to camp for the first time can be difficult. However difficult it is, parents need to remember that the very purpose of camp is to build self esteem, build character, and give your child experiences and memories o last a lifetime. That being said, you are giving them a valuable opportunity to grow rather than separating them from their family. Sending your child to camp for the first time is a valuable learning experience for you and your child. Among other things, it allows you and your child to spend time apart from each other. Time apart actually helps your child become more self aware. Take a deep breath and remember these tips.

Now that you have some strong tips to fall back on, start your search for a camp. Always look for a camp that is interesting to your child. Do some research on camps, activities, sessions, etc. Then read reviews and blogs about camps. A great place for camp information is www.campnaviogator. com Discuss the camps with your child and shortlist two or three. You should contact the shortlisted camps and request brochures and videos. Then sit down with your child to read and watch what the shortlisted camps have to offer. Involve them in the process of selecting a camp, get their inputs on what activities and sessions are important to them and ensure they feel as comfortable as possible about the decision to go to camp. Talk with your child and show your unwavering support for them as they embark on this journey. If you are a parent who needs to check in on regular intervals, select a camp that will allow you to do so. However, if you cannot find a camp that allows check ins, it’s important to honor the camps policy on that. Prior to enrollment in camp, discuss your concerns with the camp director, and emphasize what you expect in terms of supervision, safety, and other things that are important to you. You will find that your concerns are quite common, and most camp directors are open to discussing them with you, and more than willing to accommodate you if at all possible. In the final analysis of it, camps are safe, fun places where children are well cared for and supervised. Hold on to that during your time apart.

how to get through it. At the end of this discussion is you can give them some pre stamped envelopes and let them know that they can write a letter home anytime, and that you will reply. Reinforce that you are there for them, especially if they get homesick. Point out that camp is exciting, and that even though you may not enjoy all of the sessions or activities, you will have fun and meet new friends. Remind them that just like in school, the more they put into the camp activities the more they will get out of the camp experience. Emphasize the importance of reaching out to the camp counselors or camp director for help if needed. Let them know that they don’t need to be shy about getting help. If they are having a bad day, it’s ok. Let them know that the camp is well supervised and that they will be well cared for. And to remember that they will be back home soon enough. Prior to sending your child off to camp, emphasize your expectations of how they should behave, who the emergency contacts are at the camp, what they should expect in terms of session lengths and activities, and set a realistic expectation for them of what camp is. It’s important to go over possible problem situations that can arise at camp, and encourage them to come up with their own solutions to problems that arise. Let them know that you will check in with them at predetermined times as well. Taking these measures ahead of time will be very beneficial for parents and campers alike.

Remember, your child may get homesick during their time at camp. You should discuss the issue of homesickness, and
