Once you know that a camp hires qualified, caring staff, it’s good to get more detailed information about how counselors are trained once they’re hired.
One effective way to learn more is to ask the camp director what’s included in their counselor training. Of course, counselors should be trained to facilitate camp activities. But it’s also important to know that your child’s counselor will have ideas for helping develop social skills and independence. A truly great counselor is a role model and example for campers of leadership skills, character, and maturity.
