The Origin of Driftwood’s currency, The Waggie.
Once upon a time, in a camp not too far away, there were campers making us proud! We thought about how we could show them our appreciation for their kindness, spirit and determination and The Waggie was born; A wooden coin to be earned by campers throughout the land. That land being Driftwood Day Camp!
As teachers, parents and professionals, we knew that helping and modeling our core values would help to motivate children early on to be kind, compassionate, empathetic, and respectful, and to accomplish their goals.
The use of Waggies has been instrumental in fostering positive behavior, building self-esteem and empowering our children to repeat these positive acts and spread these values in all aspects of their lives.
