• Trail's End Camp Varsity Program Director Manual.

      Pilgrim, Kathryn (31/10/2013)
      Summer camps provide valuable learning experiences for eleven million children and 1.2 million staff members every summer. Significant benefits for those at well-designed camps exist and begin with staff training. A staff manual geared toward the Non-Bunk Staff, who supervise the counselors and program areas, in particular the Varsity Program Director, starts communication before the staff member arrives at camp. Trail’s End Camp is a full season summer camp with the Varsity program designed to build leadership opportunities and added choices for the oldest 134 campers ages 13-16 during their final three years at camp. The author designed the lesson plans and wrote the accompanying manual after working at Trail’s End Camp for the summer to educate and provide a resource for future staff members in supervisory positions.
