It takes grit

A little rain couldn't dampen the smiles at Camp Chincachgook. 

What do kids learn there?  That they can do things they thought they couldn't: like being away from home, sleeping in a cabin, going out in a giant canoe or kayak for the first time, and climbing pilot Knob or Buck Mountain.  These things take real "grit" - and everyone can manage it.  The satisfaction of accomplishment will last - and it will transfer to other challenges.

Meanwhile back at school...
