The New Director Orientation (NDO) is an interactive course that includes activities, lectures, and discussions in a group problem-solving environment designed to address real-life situations at camp. This course covers five critical areas to help directors and supervisors develop the skills they need to be effective leaders. The core areas covered include: 

  1. Leadership and supervision
  2. Camper and staff development and behavior
  3. Staff Training
  4. Risk management
  5. Evaluation and assessment

This NDO course will be offered in a hybrid model. 

Participants need to attend the virtual portion of the training on November 1 from 10:00 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. (don’t worry-there will be breaks!) as well as the in-person training on November 8 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Participants will be contacted by the instructor prior to the course and given instructions and access to course materials.
