Let's go on an overnight! - 2015 Tri-State

Whether you are a day or resident camp, an overnight can build a child's self esteem, create a sense of adventure, and provide an amazing once in a life time experience. Overnights are also the time when you trust your staff to go out in the woods with your kids, hoping that they know what they are doing, all while having no idea what's going on. Come learn how to turn this activity into something that will positively impact them for years to come. We'll cover activities you can do at the overnight, teaching outdoor living skills, and making the whole experience a journey they will never forget. This fun interactive session is not to be missed! 

Learning objectives 
- Learn about why an overnight camp experience can be great for all camp programs - day and resident 
- Through experiential learning, practice how to teach outdoor living skills and activities that make or break the experience 
- Discover how to create a sense of going on journey when you are simply sleeping outside
