  1. Please explain in your own words what a week as a sweat ‘n serve camper will look like. What is your understanding of the program?
  2. A sweat ‘n serve camper is not like a regular camper. You have more responsibility. Sweat ‘n serve campers work with other people almost all of the time in this program. We're a team, and that means that each person has to show a lot of responsibility. If you were going to prove that you were a responsible person, what things could you tell us about that would show this? What have you done in your life or are doing now that you believe shows that you are a responsible person?
  3. Working with each other on a team requires a great deal of respect? Sometimes people are not respectful. Please give us some examples of disrespectful behavior that you've seen, especially by people your own age. Please also give us some examples of respectful behavior that you've seen.
