ACA and Redwoods

We want to help you keep your campers safe by equipping your staff to best create safe communities for all. This 11-course package is being offered in collaboration with Redwoods. Each title is nine to 14 minutes in length.  Titles include:

Aquatic Safety in Natural Bodies of Water (10 min) 
Bringing kids to the waterfront is not break time for counselors. In this training, we’ll train camp staff how to be proactive, present, and actively engaged with campers in natural bodies of water. You’ll hear from camp staff on how to apply this guidance at your camp.

Aquatic Safety at the Pool (10 min)
Pool time does not mean break time for camp staff. In this training, we’ll highlight the counselor’s responsibility while at the pool, and how to be actively engaged with their campers at all times.

Behavior Management at Camp (12 min) 
Camp can be stressful for some children. This stress can manifest into many different behaviors.

And if a child does act inappropriately, we’ll review how to effectively respond. You’ll hear from camp staff on how to apply this guidance at your camp.
