Camp Administrator Workshop
Camp is meant to be a safe space for children to have fun and explore their creative genes. But with the number of adolescent offenders continuously rising, it is not always the case children will have this experience.
There are times where the perpetrator is a parent, caregiver, counselor or even a bunk-mate. Outside education and encouragement is therefore paramount in saving the child’s life. Without it, you may c’’v lose the opportunity to save them.
Under the U.S. law, a camp will be liable for not reporting disclosures if they left their camper vulnerable. Counselors can be an incredible resource for children to confide live-saving information to. Many scenarios need not be reported, but it is upon the caregiver to ensure the child is safe while in their care.
MagenU’s Camp Administrator workshop educates the camp staff about mandated reporting, how to handle disclosures and even how to safely interact with their campers, so they can feel safe and confident in their amazing work mentoring and engaging Hashem’s children while they are away from home.
By investing in our one-off training, you’re acting as role models in the virtues of kindness, responsibility and commitment and sending your campers a clear affirmation that you are there for them.
