|Camp Is for the Camper

Camp is for the Camper assists camp counselors in working more effectively with campers and addresses important topics for new and returning counselors. Topics: responsibility as a role model, camp as a positive force in youth development, arrival, the first day/night, social trends, parent interaction, age and developmental characteristics, reinforcing positive behaviors, courtesies of group living, understanding behavior clues, homesickness, bed-wetting, ADD/ADHD and more. We suggest having a copy available for each Cabin Leader. Consider making the online course available before counselors arrive at camp.
