Do you want to give your summer camp program a jump start? Or shake it up?  Then this is the webinar for you.  Having the proper organization and the right people in place is critical to the success of your program. But how do we get this done? In addition to organization and leadership, we will tackle common issues including proper staff training and engagement, infusing creativity into your program, working with a shoestring budget and finding resources and collaboration opportunities in your community.  This webinar is a perfect primer for those agencies and professionals who are in the process of getting ready for the summer camp season.  This is a great opportunity to learn some new methods and techniques (or a refresher to those you already know) to up your game!
