MnMs (Our Philosophy) Mission Statement Marimeta strives to create a supportive and nurturing community of girls to help them grow into independent, confident and capable women so they can become leaders to go out into the world and help create strong communities. At Marimeta, girls can disconnect from technology and connect with their peers. We teach girls to communicate with each other, be empowered, take responsibility for their actions, grow from mistakes, become self-sufficient, and learn to problem solve. It is equally important at Marimeta to be silly, get creative, be ourselves and have carefree fun in such a special environment! Our Marimeta MnM’s (Marimeta Morals) is a way of living that we want to encourage our entire Marimeta family to embrace. We have carefully created 8 MnM’s, which we hope our campers and staff will strive to live by. They incorporate incredible traits, and at camp, we remind our campers daily and weekly about the MnM’s. There are Marimeta Morals signs placed all around the camp, expanding each individual MnM. We also have posted each of the 8 MnM’s in all the cabins to help remind campers about best behavior and how to treat their fellow campers. Everyone at camp has the opportunity to award beads on a necklace to campers, counselors, kitchen staff, and the maintenance staff if they notice that there has been an effort made to follow one of the MnM’s and the necklaces are worn proudly at camp! The Marimeta Morals Do the right thing even when no one else is watching. Cheer on your friends. No matter what you accomplish, somebody along the way helped you. Leave a place neater than you found it. Be gentle with the earth. Stand for what is right, even if you are standing alone. Always finish what you start- nothing is really over until you stop trying. We are all the same in the sense we are all unique. Telling the truth in spite of the consequences takes nerve. Always thank the bus driver and anyone who has been of assistance to you.
