Friday's Final Thought: Lifelines

We'll share a full recap next week, but I wanted to share this final thought on this Friday when all our kids are headed home from the last overnight camp of 2016.  On the last night of #CRSFcamp, we ask campers to vote on a camper of the week from their team.  There is only one from each team, but there are usually many nominees.  One chaperone remarked that it was neat to see that the kids all saw different things in each other, despite having only known each other for a few short days.  Usually they just write names, but one camper wrote a reason:

I vote for…civic engagement

As we like to say at the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation, we harness sports as a vehicle to capture kids’ attention and provide a concrete way to teach them life’s lessons.  Right now, you can’t turn on a television or open up a social media site without being bombarded by news, opinions, and speculation about the men and women currently seeking public office.  Why not harness that?
