Camp Shriver: Team Sports
One of the things, Camp Shriver is trying to achieve this summer is building student relationships of trust, support, and respect. Through sports, students were able to form that type of relationship because the staff made sure that they all were winners.
For Helen and I, going to the gym creates a challenge because we were not provided with opportunities like Camp Shriver when we were younger. Also, we didn’t have the privilege to interact with so many different students.

The student divides into two groups to take turns.

According to an interview we had with one of the staff, Dom, he said that, “It depends on the kids because we make sure that there isn’t a winner but more of teamwork and team building. We also get children involved by making them cheer for their peers to develop the skill of team building.”
