Summer may seem several months away, but now is the time to create a practical plan for supporting all youth in your day camp programs. Join other leadership staff for a morning of in-depth discussion and concrete steps needed to prepare you to empower your staff. This workshop will include accommodations for day camp settings, confidentiality and working with families, as well as positive behavior supports. Plan your inclusion strategies while you are involved in the nuts and bolts of planning camp-not as an afterthought!  You will also have the opportunity to discuss your camp challenges related to disability inclusion and challenging behavior and brainstorm realistic solutions. All learning activities presented can be used in staff orientation to prepare for camp.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Develop a plan for an effective communication pipeline with your staff in order to support campers who need accommodations.
  2. Practice explaining the benefits and uses of at least one item in a Bag of Tricks to support a camper who needs accommodations.
  3. Practice applying an accommodation learned during the workshop to a scenario.
