"Club Lokanda" is an amazing tradition we have at Camp Lokanda. Our mission is to gradually help campers make the transition from home to camp easier by offering a series of wintertime events. Campers who participate in the Club Lokanda activities begin making friends long before the first day of camp and become familiar with many of our counselors, senior staff and directors who attend and help run these events. They learn early on, that the Lokanda staff is caring and fun to be with.
Club Lokanda is open to both new and returning campers. The returning campers (our "old timers") want to widen their circle of friends and also introduce new campers to the "Lokanda Way". The "Lokanda Way" is a set of values that includes welcoming other campers and making them feel more comfortable. It encourages campers to be inclusive, respectful and caring.
As a result of Club Lokanda, campers develop friendships and feel that Lokanda is their camp long before they arrive there on the first day.
We received this email from one of our camp parents:
Hi Dana & Ronen,
I just wanted to say that my son is already wishing camp was starting tomorrow. I went to camp for 10 summers when I was a kid. I knew no one getting on that bus that first day. Your Club Lokanda program is incredible. My son met his now 3 best friends at the bowling alley in Mineola and has had play dates, went to the 2nd event with them and now has invited them all to his birthday party next month. I am more confident than ever that Lokanda was the perfect choice for him, not just because his cousin iis going on her second summer, but truly because the two of you strive to and succeed to make it such a welcoming place for the new kids as well as the returning kids. Thank you so much.
