The Camp Celo program is born out of our Quaker values of non-violence, simplicity, and environmental awareness. Our central belief is that the Light of God exists in each person. Our program stresses cooperation and minimizes competition and regimentation. We seek to free ourselves from the violence, exploitation, and materialism of popular culture. We teach an appreciation of the natural world and aim to minimize our impact on the environment. We don't have a religious program but there is a spiritual element to life at camp that focuses on the universal principles of compassion, cooperation, integrity, responsibility, and service common to all major religions. We actively seek a group that is diverse culturally, ethnically, and economically. We are a coeducational camp because we feel that boys and girls working and playing together develop real friendships and regard for each other as people.
