Have you asked your camp staff what their summer was really like? Andy and Sam did - and we found out their staff are incredibly honest.
For our first podcast of 2022, we’re going to the source- the staff themselves- so you can hear their debrief of last summer, and their thoughts on recruiting future superstars at our camps.
We’re going to warn you now, that Ashley Whittington & Justin Pritikin offer up some sobering realities, alongside some great ideas- so buckle up, buttercup!
