Let’s Talk about S-E-X

This webinar will address a variety of topics related to adolescent health and sexuality that may arise during a camper’s or staff member’s time at camp.

1. Learn communication techniques that can help to put camp staff and campers at ease when discussing sensitive matters.

2. Identify at least three health conditions that may require special care or other accommodations at camp.

3. Name sources of assistance/referrals for campers and/or staff members who require confidential health care while at camp.

4. While laws vary from state to state, we will touch upon confidentiality and privacy requirements and situations in which reporting may be required or contraindicated.
