    At YMCA Day Camp, value beads play an important role as a sign of character and personal achievement.  Beads at camp promote positive behaviour, and are worn as a constant reminder of what we value as a camp community.  Throughout the week, beads are awarded to individuals for demonstrating the YMCA core values of friendship, caring, honesty, diversity, social inclusion, responsibility, respect, leadership, and excellence.
