Here’s part 2 of this important conversation with Dr. Perry and Dr. Ozier.

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 second part of a two-part episode, we cover:

  • Goal is uplifting ALL humanity
  • Staff training, and ongoing staff stuff through the season (when you see it, say it- see what? say what?)
  • How to talk to campers about it- proactively (like on Mondays when laying down the rules), and when kids slip up- how to address it.
  • Communicating racism, diversity, tolerance with little kids vs. big kids
  • Parent Communications- Website, Parent Resource Guides, what to “say” on a tour
