Where does the Soup go? Lessons Learned From an Anxious Kid at Camp
I was given a gift when my son attended camp for the first time, that gift came in the form of tears, fear, and overwhelming anxiety. It was a heart-wrenching experience to see my favorite place in the world be so hard for him to experience. What about camp was making it so hard? How can I fix this? His answers fundamentally changed the way that my team and I now approach the camp. Join us as we work through his anxiety and learn the answer to the question Where does the soup go?
