20 Dec Confidence – Why do some have it and others don't? At Susquehannock we pride ourselves in developing confident campers. Here are few traits we strive to develop through our program of athletic development and confidence-based learning… Accountability: Confident people believe they can make things happen and they take responsibility. They don't blame a poor grade on the teacher, a loss on a referee, or poor performance in a game on the field conditions. They accept responsibility for the situation and move on.Persistence: Confident people are diligent. They see their current inability to do something as nothing more than a challenge, rather than an excuse to give up. They concentrate on the objective at hand, learn from their mistakes, create new strategies and adapt to the situation.Proactive: Confident people are action-oriented; they create a plan and then act on it.Proper Attitude: They aren't frightened of a challenge and say, "this can't be done." They are appreciative and value the effort of their teammates or co-workers. They believe the most avaricious thing you can do is to be selfless in the short-term.Empathy: Confident people accept other people for who they are, and look for their strengths and positives. They want to be around people with assets, skills and personalities that vary from their own. They realize the acceptance of others will broaden their skill set and knowledge.Resourcefulness: Confident people are resourceful; they don't get upset because they don't have the best equipment, teammates, field conditions or support. Confident people figure out a way to adapt, or succeed by digging deep within themselves and get by without it.These are just a few of the many things children of all ages will learn at Camp Susquehannock. That being said, if they only leave Camp having further developed these six traits, their lives will be much improved as a result.Read the full message: susquehannock.com ️ Director's Messages ️ Six Traits of Confidence…

16 Dec Why Tripp Lake? (From Camp Susquehannock: A 100-Year History, by Dede Shafer)For several summers in the early 1970s, an effort was made to find the origin of the name "Tripp Lake." Although there are a number of families by the name of Tripp in the Conklin and Binghamton areas as well as in Scranton, no deeds could be found in the Susquehanna County courthouse for anyone by that name who had owned land on Tripp Lake in Lawsville Township, Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania.A few years ago a gentleman by the name of Tripp […] claimed that his great-great-great grandfather had settled at the lake before the turn of the century […] and it was he for whom the lake was named.
