Preparing Children for a Diverse World
Cedar Brook is a heterogeneous camp with more than 22 countries represented between the campers and staff. Our goal is to embrace cultural diversity in order to enrich our campers, to enable them to succeed in the real global world.
Quoting Kofi Annan, Former Secretary-General of the United States
“Tolerance, inter-cultural dialogue and respect for diversity are more essential than ever in a world where people are becoming more and more closely interconnected.”
“People of different religions and cultures live side by side in almost every part of the world, and most of us have overlapping identities which unite us with very different groups. WE can love what we are, without hating what-and who-we are not. We can thrive in our own tradition, even as we learn from others, and come to respect their teachings.”
At Cedar Brook we are fortunate to have a team of administrators, instructors, and staff who consciously practice and preach being cohesive and one camp community.
Our campers and parents feel very lucky to be part of our multi-cultural community here at Cedar Brook!
