The 2011 Values Awards Ceremony!

This Saturday, October 1st, over 800 people gathered in Seattle's historic Town Hall for our annual values awards ceremony.

At Camp Orkila and Camp Colman we structure our programming around the Y's four core values: Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility. The Y defines these values as essential traits for one's success and the strength of our community. We hope not only to teach our campers about these core values but that they will take what they learn at camp back home with them and into the future.

Each recipient was voted on by their peers at the end of their stay at camp as exemplifying one of the core values. We were delighted to celebrate these individuals with their friends and families on Saturday

As one of Camp Colman's counselors Zawdie Terry said, "The future is looking bright."
