This leadership training (to be held at Camp Magruder) is for all staff who will be serving at Camp Magruder, Suttle Lake Camp, Camp Latgawa or Wallowa Lake Camp this summer. Leadership staff at Sawtooth Camp are also encouraged and welcome to attend. Church leaders and others are welcome to participate too, as many of the workshops offered would benefit Christian leaders working in a variety of settings.
This is a critical training for all camp leaders. If you are unable to make this training, please contact the site where you will be serving so that these important topics can be covered well in advance of camp.
This training event has a unique track for counselors (Friday evening – Sunday afternoon), as well as workshops for deans, chaplains, healthcare providers, and other leaders (Friday evening – Saturday afternoon). In large group sessions we will all explore core pieces of Camp and Retreat Ministry to better understand our mission and everyone's roles in keeping camp safe and how to practice Safe Sanctuaries and Child Protection Policies in the camp setting. A full schedule will be available in early 2019.
Engaging sessions specifically designed to help counselors prepare for cabin life and working with campers. Skill sessions will include establishing a community of respect, knowing camp rules, camp worship and prayer, how to get campers excited and how to settle them down, listening, working with small groups, seizing faith moments through the day, and more.
