Interview with Don Jennings

At the Northeast YMCA Camp Conference, Don Jennings and I got together to talk about the Internet (the entire thing!).  We recapped discussions and thoughts from the Conference surrounding how social media is affecting summer camp.

Take a listen below or right click and download the file here.  The interview was just over 10 minutes long.

Don Jennings, on top of being a fellow nerd, is the Camp Director of YMCA Camp Mason.  He twitters at @dwjngs.  He is leading the session "It's Time to Bring Back Free Time!" at the 2010 ACA Tri-State Camp Conference.

Thanks for this podcast. I enjoyed hearing Don Jennings perspective on how social media is affecting the camping industry.
I also have to say that as abstract as the reference he chose to use was, I do remember the episode of the "six million dollar man" that he was referring to!!

That's hilarious! After the interview, we talked about that episode for about 15 minutes alone.

I'm glad you were able to follow along, Adam - thanks for the kind words. I wonder if the writers at 'In Search of...' knew the folks at '6 Million Dollar Man' were stealing their best stuff?
