At camp we like to instill values in our campers that will follow them off the mountain. Shrine Mont has always had the power to let campers head home feeling like they're a part of larger community and with any luck they'll carry the values of acceptance and love with them in their everyday life. But one camp focuses specifically on taking taking those values off the mountain as a core component of camp: that's the Senior High Youth Conference (SHYC for short). Each day they devote time to a different service project at Shrine Mont and in the Shenandoah Valley. This week, we’ll be spending some time with SHYC to learn about what it means to take camp off the mountain.
