Camp participants and staff experience a range of emotions throughout camp. Some emotional responses are the normal reaction to a new situation while others struggle from a diagnosed condition. Camps must identify strategies to address the mental, emotional, and social health of youth (including staff) during the program. Facility design, programmatic structure, and staff focus are a few ways that camps are beginning to address MESH-related concerns. This session addresses MESH concerns by sharing practical tools for working with individuals that experience MESH issues.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Attendees will gain a broader understanding of mental health concerns that are emerging in camps.
  2. Attendees will learn how various levels of staff can be engaged to address camper MESH concerns.
  3. Create a list of potential projects (outside of ‘regular’ camp duties) to serve as culminating projects for students.
  4. Attendees will learn techniques that may be used to address MESH concerns.
