Del Sur Elementary

The purpose of Camp Virtues is to lovingly encourage the development of spiritual qualities in children of all faiths and backgrounds, and to help them build a strong moral foundation that will be the basis for a life well-lived.

At Camp Virtues, campers ages 5-11 learn about the virtues through story-telling, discussion, music, cooperative games, and arts and crafts. Each lesson is accompanied by a quotation from the Bahai Sacred Writings that highlights that virtue. Every morning starts with an all-camp assembly in which songs and prayers are said, as well as a closing assembly where campers from different age groups share with others what they have learned about the virtue of the day. At the end of each day, each camper is also acknowledged specifically by their camp counselors for a virtue that he or she has shown that day and is awarded with an angel virtue acknowledgment that goes home with them.

The cost for each camper is $125 for the week. Camp Virtues is non-profit and is completely run by volunteers. Parents are encouraged to volunteer their time either before the start of camp in preparing the various arts and crafts activities the children will do, helping to share a talent or skill they have during the week of camp (yoga instructor, art instructor, group singing, etc.) and/or preparing healthy snacks for the children. We appreciate everyone’s support!
