Do you secretly dread proofreading the written correspondence your staff draft to camper parents?  Do these letters lack specific information about each child?  Would they make an English professor cringe?  Do you end up writing most notes yourself?  This webinar will address these frustrations and offer creative ways to facilitate this process so that writing quality parent communication is easier on your staff and on you!  This webinar will equip you with a plan to make huge improvements this summer!
