Benefits of Blended Camp
- Addressing and combating stereotypical inter-gender dynamics
- i.e. Day of the Queen Bees, where “traditional” roles are flipped
- Ensuring every camper has an equal voice regardless of gender
- Increased “family” dynamics due to a higher percentage of “real-life” siblings
- Modeling from staff and fellow campers on positive intergender relationships
- Normalizing interactions with the other gender
- Fostering learning from the other gender
- Because boys and girls often deal with disagreements differently (with boys generally more likely to focus on rules, and girls generally more interested in talking through a conflict), campers maximize being well-rounded
