Camper Supervision Under the Microscope: What Your Staff Are Missing and What You Can Do About It

DESCRIPTION AND LEARNING OUTCOMES:
Staff know to make sure campers are wearing a life jacket before going in a canoe and to give the appropriate commands at the archery range.  BUT, do they know what do if they need to have a private conversation with a camper or the best way to avoid/handle a situation when circumstances dictate 1-1 interactions with a child such as in the health center or on a trip?  This session will carefully examine a typical camp day and identify potential areas of inadequate or compromised staff coverage during non-program times.  Take away a plan to teach your staff to avoid these tricky scenarios when possible and choose the best course of action when inevitable. 
 
Through this webinar participants will learn:
1) Identify potential areas of inadequate or compromised staff coverage by close examination (zooming in) to a typical camp day during non-program times.
2) Learn the best way to handle tricky scenarios so that camper privacy is respected when typical supervision considerations are not ideal.
3) Recognize that training staff to avoid or supervise differently 1-1 situations is important to camper safety and critical to a camp’s risk management plan.
