ACA, New England Camp Experienced Director Round Table Series 2019-2020

Wednesday, 23 October 2019 - 10:30am to Tuesday, 12 May 2020 - 1:30pm

All times local unless stated differently below.

This is an opportunity for camp directors with five or more summers of director experience to come together monthly for eight sessions from October 2019 to May 2020. The monthly gatherings will be faciliated by Bob Ditter and will provide attendees with time for general discussion, an optional brown bag lunch, and breakout time for smaller or deeper discussions.

While topics of discussion will be peer-driven, Bob will help set the schedule of discussions and supporting articles and resources in advance of the sessions.

The first session will be on a Wednesday and will be an extended day (10:30 AM – 3 PM) to give members a chance to get to know one another better and develop a better appreciation of each other’s operations. The remaining sessions will run on Tuesdays, 10:30 AM– 1:30 PM. Knowing travel can be challenging during the winter months and some of you came quite a distance, we will also explore the option of holding a one or two sessions via Zoom to alleviate some of those concerns.

The dates for the 2019-2020 season are as follows:

  • Wednesday, October 23, 2019, 10:30 AM - 3:00 PM
  • Tuesday, November 12, 2019, 10:30 AM - 1:30 PM
