The second phase of the continuous improvement cycle is “assess”. During this phase, camp professionals organize and execute program quality assessments at their camp, facilitate ongoing coaching conversations with staff, and manage assessment data. An important consideration is how to modify assessment plans in the face of the craziness of peak camp operations! Participants will benefit most from this session if they have joined the previous webinar focused on preparing for program quality assessments and improvements.
