Always Learning

February 12, 2011

Next month we (camp administrators) will attend the Tri-state Camp Conference, the largest gathering of camp professionals in the world. Sponsored by the American Camp Association (ACA), this 3-day meeting offers hundreds of workshops with titles such as “Play With Your Food: Camp Gardens and Food Education”, “Competition: Can Kids Live Without It?” (we think so) and “Creating and Fostering Parent Relationships and Partnerships”. We always come back from this event inspired, pumped up for the camp season to begin, more knowledgeable and with an even stronger conviction that the work we are doing with children is what is needed, different from other camps and very important, indeed!
