2015 CampWorks! Conference - Request for Session Proposals
Call for Proposals
The American Camp Association, Northern California is now accepting proposals from high quality presenters for innovative, timely and dynamic educational sessions to be presented at 2015 CampWorks! Conference at the beautiful Mt. Hermon Conference Center in Felton, CA.
Building Competence in Campers and Staff. The concept of competence as defined by social scientists in positive youth development (based on the work of many, including Lerner et al., 2010) include emotional competence, social skills, life skills, healthy habits and love of learning. The conference will focus on building the capacity of campers and staff to be competent in those indicators of thriving.
Conference Target Audience:
The spring conference attracts emerging camp professionals (EPIC), mid-management level camp directors and program directors, seasonal camp directors of both resident and day camp programs, leadership or head counselors and other camp and outdoor program professionals. Our goal is to provide quality education sessions with take home strategies that invigorate all staff for the upcoming camp season.
Deadline for proposals is March 1, 2015.
