About the Event

Join us for a day of LEARNING and CONNECTION at this Camp Now, Wine Later event.


CAMP NOW (education)

Begin your day with professional development focused on addressing the staffing crisis with the team leader from ACA's Project Real Job workgroup.  Kim Aycock will share findings from the workgroup on what is takes to attract, train and retain the best summer staff members.  We will examine recruitment strategies, add training tools for positive staff culture and learn how to not only get the strongest staff members to return, but also enlist them as your best staff advocates to attract other great staff members. We will also hear from experts on how new regulations can impact your staff policies, training and insurance coverage.


WINE LATER (celebration)

After a full day of learning, you deserve to kick back and treat yourself to an evening of wine tasting and dinner with your extended camp family. Hosted at the beautiful Catholic Charities St. Vincent's School for Boys in San Rafael, enjoy local wines, delicious food, and time to relax and share stories of your memorable summer.
