Throwing in the towel - saying "come get your kid" - 2015 Tri-State

Asking a child to leave camp has never been an easy task. Every year it seems like a family's expectations of what a summer camp can provide grows. Families need more support than ever. At the same time, parents trust of educators and care providers has shifted dramatically in the past decade. Parents are skeptical of any criticism about their child. Now it seems like when it comes to kicking someone out of camp, we're doing it all wrong. Come learn how to talk to families about this sensitive topic, navigate conversation traps, and provide the best care for all campers. 

Learning objectives: 
- Learn how to identify when a child should go home 
- Learn how to take the steps to send child home 
- Learn how to talk with families about their child home
