Cedar Lodge Staff Philosophy:Cedar Lodge is not one or two people,
but a small dedicated group of individuals, all very different
people. They all have a variety of skills and talents and yet all
hold the same unique ideas together; the love of camping out
doors and a desire to teach that love to children. Although our
camp family may change from year to year, our ideals remain the
same. That's what makes us strong, and that's what makes us
We believe in creating a low pressure, noncompetitive atmosphere where children choose how to spend their day, one day at a time. Though riding and swimming are scheduled activities, no activity is mandatory, and though encouraged, no child is forced to participate if they decide not to. One of the unique parts of camp is the ability to give children the chance to experiment with areas of expertise that they may have not had the opportunity, or been too frightened to try before. How special to teach a child to ride a bike for the first time, to sit on a horse, or stand up and perform in a play. To try playing an instrument and be part of a rock band, to shoot and arrow, to swim competently in deep water, to sleep under the stars, or to investigate tracks in the woods. All those things and many more are possible when a child comes to summer camp. All those things have been firsts for many children that come here. Some, have made life long changes that will effect them forever. If you are hired here, you very well might be part of those changes.
Our motto is "we're flexible", and we keep that motto all summer long.
We believe in the importance of campers learning how to make their own decisions and being responsible for carrying out these ideas to their conclusions. We believe that we are not only here to teach, but we are also here to learn.
