"We went to a garage sale today and all the clothes smelled like you. I bought a few things just because of that."

At the end of each week of Tecumseh, we talk about the Sagamore Creed. It challenges campers and staff to not be content with how we are, but to always strive to become more like the Sagamore and to improve in areas of initiative, friendship, responsiblity, trust, faith and joy. Recently, Camp T released these Sagamore Creed inspired posts on Instagram. I'm obsessed and would like to have each one as a poster in every cabin.
