For years, we’ve seen a steady increase in anxiety with our campers and staff. The solution has, increasingly, been medication and intervention which hasn’t solved the root cause of the issue. What if camp provided the missing link to alleviate the increased stress in our campers and lack of resilience in our staff? The answer lies in the Power of Human Connection and the innate ability the camp environment possesses to help our campers and staff be members of a supportive, healthy community. This session will uncover the numbers associated with the increase in diagnosis and medication and provide evidence of the power of social interaction, friendship and human connection. Come prepared to learn and discuss strategies to integrate a more intentional community of connection at your Summer program.
