The Honor C.O.D.E.

Curious.
Open.
Dedicated.
Enthusiastic.

Pingry Big Blue Summer campers and staff live by The Honor C.O.D.E. As they encounter new activities and challenges, campers are encouraged to be Curious, Open, Dedicated and Enthusiastic while remaining true to Pingry’s greatest value, Honor.


Honor at camp is defined as respecting others, the environment, and oneself. Throughout their day, Big Blue Summer counselors and staff guide campers in developing self-confidence through practicing collaborative & problem-solving skills. We encourage campers to ask questions, consider many views, and work toward common goals with a positive attitude!

Our camp’s Honor C.O.D.E. is an extension of Pingry’s Honor Code, which empowers students to lead by example and behave honorably through personal integrity rather than rules and regulations.
