Improve next summer’s camp, now.
We are tired.
At the end of a LOOOONG camp season all we want to do is crawl into bed and watch a great new series on DVD (I must remember to ask Dan what his “catch up” show was this summer).
However, this is the best time to sit down with your favourite warm beverage, a note pad and your best pen. Some of you may choose to do this with camper surveys and notes from your senior staff but I think that might be unnecessary. Take a solid block of time to mentally scan your whole camp and note the things that you want to change for next season.
Dan and Gab had some great ideas on how they reflect on the past summer and find the changes that they want to make. Summer 2013 starts now!
What can we do to inspire our staff to become even better in the second half of the summer? Please leave us a note in the comments below or tweet us @CampHacker with your suggestion.
