Early in January we welcomed Michael Brandwein and Travis Allison as they presented, Brandwein & Allison on Essential Strategies & Power Tools for 2021 Camps.
This 2 day training focused on a few key goals: Helping camps build a year-round camp community even when we’re not face-to-face, make marketing work in this new space, interview and recruit adaptively, and select great staff in a pandemic world. Travis and Michael also spoke to creating a culture of creativity, flexibility, and responsible decision-making for fast change and problem-solving, and they addressed specific ways to help camps focus on using camp for intentional youth development and not just activities, whether online or face-to face.
We had over 120 people register and attend this training, spanning 31 states and Canada. We were overwhelmed with the interest in this event, but with the incredible talents of Travis Allison and Michael Brandwein, it's not surprising.
Attendees said the event was:
“Engaging and attention grabbing! Great information that can be applicable in settings in and out of camp.”
“This training not only provided great strategies, it also re-energized me to get into the camp mindset again.”
“An engaging, informative training well worth the investment of your money and time.”
We are so grateful to be able to provide incredible speakers and content to our camps and membership. Continue to check out our calendar of upcoming events and trainings for you and your team at ACA Illinois Events Calendar.
