My response for “Happy camper”
I think the main concept of the happy camper was to be yourself, to follow your own path, to be your own person, and that we were just told to be more accepting towards others. He talked about how being a happy camper is about helping not only yourself. Everyone should try to be happy campers and try their best in everything and anything ( bring true to yourself).
I think that it’s a good idea to watch because it’s not boring and it doesn’t just talk about how you should be doing one thing or another but just interesting jokes about how you could do something and making people laugh here and there. But also give them the main idea of what they should be doing. To make the world better behind you then it was in front of you.
What are the typical problems facing teens today? I think the problems teens are facing today are confident issues, self-love issues and body image issues. Because society is very judgemental causing other people to be less themselves to stop experiencing life and just watching it go by.
How are you better and brighter than your parent’s generation?
I think that I have more knowledge on current things because my parent’s generation did not learn the new thing that I’m learning. For example, science- added information about animals, bacteria and the periodic table, that they might need to read about if their teachers (which is not a very good way by just reading).
Have you ever “Left your campsite better than you found it”?
Wherever I go my parents told/taught me to pick up after not only myself but others. Also, you don’t have to pick up all the trash, try to ask others to help make the world a better place and to tell them to pick up after themselves and others. So then soon a lot of people could be doing the same as you.
What is wrong with saying, “What’s wrong with teens today?”It’s wrong because you shouldn’t be pointing out what’s the worst about teens but pointing out what’s the best about teens. You are supposed to say “what is right with teens?” You should look at what’s right with teens and focus on what they do so then you could show other teens to be successful.
How will you know you are a “Happy Camper”?I will know I’m a happy camper when I do the pledge and when I do good things for others and do things not only because there will be a reward but because the reward will be self-appreciation and a good feeling. For example, picking up garbage: If I could fill up 5 bags with garbage that I just pick up from the ground, the whole world won’t give me a medal but I would have a feeling that would be like getting a metal.
