Camps in Iowa

Camp Season is Here

 I have spent 2 weekends recently training Summer Camp Directors. Yep, it’s time to get ready for camp season! Risk management, waterfron & pool safety, program highlights, and staff training are on the minds and to-do lists for camp directors just now. One of the interesting things we incorporated into our training this year was the results of a research project titled, "Effective Camp Research Project," sponsored, in part, by the Lutheran Foundation. It highlights 5 aspects of camps that are positive and life changing for youth…and their parents.
