The Day Camp world is being reborn after the summer of 2020. Let’s rebuild it into a world of diversity, equity and inclusion.

One of the silver linings 2020 has been the awakening of many camp professionals to the glaring lack of diversity in the camp industry.

Besides camps that cater to children living in the inner-city, Summer camp- like many American institutions, has historically been a white proposition. Today we will discuss what we can do within our organizations, to help make change. Thank you for joining us for this important discussion

In this first part of a two-part episode, we cover:

  • Developmental appropriateness-
    1. inappropriate, but age-appropriate- use as teachable moments- don’t dismiss.
    2. “Got it from parents”
  • NAMING defensiveness-
    1. “Not seeing race”
    2. Avoiding the topic
  • How do we show off- How do we represent camp validity to all people
    1. Not avoiding… accepting, knowing what the community values.
    2. Step 1- Hiring diverse staff
