What’s the Buzz on Difficult Conversations at Camp? Peer Discussion Session

As you get ready to welcome staff and campers this summer, join your camp colleagues to consider your camp’s approach to difficult conversations that might arise. During our time together, participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Identify current events that have the potential to impact camp this summer.
  • Discuss ways to safely hold multiple staff/camper perspectives while role modeling inclusivity.
  • Explore how camps can be proactive about their expectations for staff and camper interactions regarding current events.

Jen “Dusty” Clitheroe, Principal Consultant for Strength Perspective, will help moderate the conversation alongside ACA, New England staff. We are not experts on all topics, but through this gathering we want to create a forum for discussion, crowdsourcing, and resource-sharing.

Please come prepared to have your videos on, ask questions, and engage in dialogue. We do expect to use breakout rooms for smaller discussions.

This session WILL NOT BE RECORDED, so please plan to join us live.

When: Wednesday, May 22, 1:00 – 2:00 pm ET

Where: Zoom (link will be emailed by the morning of May 22, 2024)

Cost: FREE for ACA members; $25/non-members. Pricing is based on individual ACA membership status.
