Gan Israel - Making Camp Safe - Prevent Child Abuse

Making Camp Safe - Prevent Child Abuse (1 Hour)

We need to take the fear out of this topic and present clear guidelines to ensure you understand your legal responsibilities as mandated reporters, the rules of appropriate physical contact, camp rules to avoid "yichud" one-on-one interactions, and directions for appropriate staff-camper communication. Protect your campers, and more importantly - yourself. Participants will be able to:

  1. Recognize and report child abuse
  2. Respond appropriately if a camper discloses abuse 
  3. Ensure they are never alone one-on-one with a camper
  4. Ensure physical touching is within the legal industry-standards
  5. Determine if a conversation is inappropriate, and effectively end it
  6. Communicate with campers on social media appropriately, both during and after camp

Read this first before registering!

  1. Upon successful payment, you will receive an email confirmation with an email text to forward to your staff with the link to register for the courses. It will be below the payment receipt (automated Chabad.org message).
  2. If a staff member can't make any of the sessions, He/she must register before the course to receive a recording and a test. Recordings will only be sent to staff who register for a session BEFORE the session takes place. (Don't give this as an option from the start, the course is much more effective when staff are involved live!)
  3. Staff members will need to register with their director's name and email.  Upon completing the test, the score and a certificate of completion will be emailed to the staff member and the camp director.
  4. Due to the number of courses/dates, it is difficult for me to run a report of who registered for what (before the course). Ask your staff to forward you the REGISTRATION CONFIRMATION they receive to prove to you they are registered.
  5. The success of the training lies in its implementation in camp. Directors are invited and encouraged to attend (at no charge) all staff sessions as well.
  6. I love feedback. Please let me know how the staff enjoyed, was it practical, is there something else you'd like to see in a future training...
