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, Pingry counselors and staff guide campers in developing self-confidence and collaborative and problem-solving skills by asking questions, considering many views, and working toward 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.
