Scarf Society

At the heart of Camp Saint Andrew’s lies our Scarf Program. Based on the YMCA Rag Society, this optional annual progression of meaningful personal challenges ask our campers and staff to take a deeper look at how they behave, their place in the world, and how they can positively impact the those around them through their leadership and example.  Each colored scarf is an external reminder of a challenge accepted.
