This week our entire director team traveled to beautiful Palm Springs, California for the American Camp Association’s Spring Leadership Conference, a four day event where camp professionals attend educational seminars, learn from motivational keynote speakers, network, and of course, play! Long time Outpost Directors Elizabeth Martinet and Evan Grant both led well-attended and popular workshops at the conference: Elizabeth’s was on intrinsic motivation for high school and college staff, and Evan’s was about coaching counselors from the digital generation. For our fourteenth summer which is only two months away, all of us at Outpost are excited to leverage knowledge from this conference into ensuring that our entire camp program is of the highest quality. As a long time, accredited member camp of ACA, we’re thankful for these professional development opportunities and look forward to another wonderful summer at Outpost!
