Woodstock Whispers Ep 6: The Staff Creed and the Staff Creed Award
Dec 06, 2020 Season 1 Episode 6

In this episode, Tony Gronski, Hannah Richardson, Conley Cummings, Alyssa Shapiro, Jeremiah Huntt, Tara McVeigh, and Jesse Gresshin share stories about the Camp Woodstock Staff Creed and the Staff Creed Award. 

THE CAMP WOODSTOCK STAFF CREED:
There is no one more responsible than I. I realize that I am a member of a time-honored tradition, which is known as a “Woodstocker.” I am proud of the Woodstock tradition, and will at all times conduct myself to bring credit upon Camp Woodstock, the YMCA, and the CHoRR values. I recognize my position here is a privilege which I will not abuse.

Respect is my watchword. My two basic responsibilities will always be uppermost in my mind: to facilitate a safe environment, and maintain the welfare of my campers. I will fulfill my responsibilities inherent to that role. All campers are entitled to outstanding leadership; I will provide that leadership. I know my campers and I will always place their needs above my own. I will be fair and impartial when recommending both rewards and consequences

Camp staff will have maximum time to accomplish their duties; they will not have to accomplish mine. I will earn their respect and confidence, as well as that of my campers. I will respect those with whom I work, regardless of their position. I will exercise initiative by taking appropriate action in the absence of instruction. I will not compromise my integrity nor my CHoRR values. I will not forget, nor will I allow my peers to forget, that we are counselors – leaders!

Also, you can end up on the podcast now!   We have set up a Google Voice account at: ‪(303) 834-7639‬. You can call and leave a voice mail and then we can use that as content for a future podcast. What should you leave as a voice mail you ask? I'll challenge you to leave a VM of you singing your favorite cheer or Woodstock song. You can leave it anonymously if you like. If you rather not sing, you can leave a voice mail related to anything on Woodstock - your favorite program, a favorite place, a favorite memory - anything. 

Rembmer As we "run up" to the 100th reunion in 2022, we are looking to capture (and re-capture) conversations with Woodstockers over the ages to hear what's changed, what has stayed the same, what memories people have and how Woodstock impacted their lives.   Let us know if you have a story to share with the Woodstock community!
