It’s what you say in your head before helping them learn.
After a shortened Season 6 and a lot of questions from fellow listeners, WE ARE BACK with Season 7.
This episode is dedicated to those moments where you as a camp director see something and say, “Are You Freaking Kidding Me!?”.
Our hosts Beth, Ruby and Gabs have plenty of experience as Camp Directors and they are here to share stories of times where even they were at a loss!
From sounding happy on the phone, riding public transit to doing laundry are all examples of some of the things that we, as directors may take for granted, but are still so necessary to teach our young leaders.
Tune in as our hosts explore ways to work through challenges such as:
Running scenarios to help camp staff work through real life examples
Journaling beside your bed. Write down your frustrations at night in one place and ToDos for the next morning.
Interview new staff and veteran staff at the end of the year asking “what do you wish that a new staff member knew prior to the start of summer”
Teach the chores by front loading expectations with staff
Leadership Training Best Practices
“Can I show you something” is a phrase that great leaders use. From teaching staff how to budget or greeting parents, or teaching great things at camp. Mentoring staff is a key part for both yours and camp staff success.
