January 25, 2023 Winter Workshop and Networking Event
Register NOW for the January Education Workshop on Camper and Counselor Well-Being. This critical workshop with three amazing presenters will fill-up! The last two workshops we held at The Italian Heritage Center had waitlists.
The Education Committee is excited to announce our topic and speakers for the annual educational workshop on January 25, at the Italian Heritage Center. Join us for an interactive and in-depth discussion of Camper & Counselor Well-Being in Today’s World. We have gathered an all-star speaker team including John Hamilton of Camp Hope America, Tracey Gaslin of the Alliance for Camp Health, and (coming out of retirement from speaking engagements) camp expert and psychologist Bob Ditter! These speakers will address recent trends in youth and young adult mental health, well-being, and resilience.
They will focus on actionable steps for camp directors and how we can help camp staff process their own challenges and needs, so they in turn can meet the needs of their campers. This event will be our first in-person January Workshop since before the arrival of Covid-19. We look forward to many opportunities for small group discussions, seeing colleagues you may not have seen in a few years, and making new connections. Please mark your calendars for 9 am on January 25, at the Italian Heritage Center in Portland and stick around after the workshop for our Business Extravaganza. The cost is only $30 per person and includes lunch and great raffle prizes at the conclusion of the Business Extravaganza.
