Speaking Topics
  • Staff Training & Motivation

    Expect the unexpected! What to do when something happens that wasn't covered in staff training. How to cope and handle emergencies, uncomfortable situations, personal information shared by a camper or fellow employee, knowledge of illegal activity and more. This session is provided to reassure camp staff that almost anything they encounter has been dealt with effectively by others. Tips and methods on how to cope are shared.

  • Leadership

  • Volunteer Relations

    Do you report to a volunteer Board of Directors? Do you work with volunteer committees and advisory boards? Are you prevented from taking action until you get their blessing or directive? Does it take forever? This session will cover a variety of challenges camps encounter when working with volunteers, including alumni, well-meaning donors and those with a personal or hidden agenda. This session is designed for Owners & Directors

  • Reputation Repair

    In all things, it's harder to build than to destroy. Building a good reputation requires effort, patience, and time. Destroying a good reputation only requires a single moment's misstep. The secret to building a good reputation? Become a person who deserves one. This session will impart grown-up attitudes and behaviors to camp staff to drive home the fact that they are, (now and forever), your Camp Staff.

  • HR Issues- "How to Fire a Friend"

    Camp staff dynamics include friends who are now supervisors and multi-year relationships that carry-on far beyond camp. Terminating employment of a camp-friend is akin to kicking a family member out of the house. In addition to common best practices, this session will explore ways to make a very difficult situation a bit smoother, including how to identify challenges, documentation methods and ways to break-the-bad-news. Done properly, this can be an excellent growth opportunity for all involved.
