Summer Camp Rules
A great new resource for camp professionals, directors and counselors alike!
Summer Camp Rules is packed with practical wisdom about working with children. The book addresses the realities of working with children in today’s high tech, highly stimulated climate and outlines the essential qualities one needs to work effectively with children. It contains Bob’s critical prescription for communicating effectively with children: charity, clarity, brevity and levity; and presents basic and advanced communication skills and techniques, including those for working with children in groups. There are lots of extras, like how to set up a “contract” or agreement with children and how to tell if they are truly ready for camp. While written for a camp setting, the book clearly benefits teachers and parents as well!
