ACA Illinois, How to Maintain Morale and Energize Teams for Resident Camps

Thursday, 6 May 2021 -
1:00pm to 2:30pm

All times local unless stated differently below.

As if there is nothing else to worry about, the summer of 2021 will present unique challenges for energizing our teams and maintaining staff morale.

Responding to the collective trauma COVID-19 has wrought means that staff will be starting out the summer with already-elevated levels of stress and anxiety.

While we implement strategies to keep our camp communities physically healthy and safe, we will also need to be creative, intentional and vigilant about keeping our staff emotionally healthy, upbeat and engaged. We’re not just talking about teambuilders or staff socials – we’re looking at some out-of-the-box ways to get your staff through, even if leaving camp on time-off isn’t an option.

Join Emily Golinsky to dig into a little bit of the science behind boosting staff morale, as well as best practices and COVID-aware ideas you can implement at your resident camp to flatten the summer doldrums curve and totally rock the Summer of 2021.
