The Surprising Power of Passionate Parents…Partnering without Pain

How many times have you heard a camp director friend say "This job would be so great…if there weren't so many parent's involved" or "I spend all of my time just dealing with parents.  I can't get anything done".    We think there is a way to have a great relationship with your camp's parents and still focus on developing a transformative program for their children.    Effective partnerships with parents involve:  figuring out what gives them stress and communicating how camp solves that problem; looking at your current camp families and figuring out which parents have been your best allies today---then getting more of them.

American Camp:  More Essential and Impactful Than Ever Before

Organized American camping began more than 150 years ago to provide a place for children to get away from an increasingly complex world.  Early camp experiences provided a nature-infused home away from home with relatable mentors, positive risk opportunities that built skills, self-confidence and autonomy. Today, camp fosters 21st Century Learning as a fundamental practice which results in greater success in college, career and life. Camps model community, teach STEM, inspire leadership, ignite altruism, embrace mindfulness and foster environmentalism through immersive outdoor experiences.  American camp programs inoculate youth against alarming societal trends in mental, emotional and social health.   In this session, we will examine how American camp experiences are more critical to youth development than ever before
