We make it easy to implement the framework at your camp. We work with you every step of the way, imparting our knowledge of the content and processes involved to your leadership team ensuring you can successfully coordinate the program. We provide introductory presentations to explain this system to your staff. We work with you to design a program that is suitable for your camp's needs and can incorporate any staff management system you currently have in place. We provide all paperwork and materials necessary along with supporting information to help guide your team throughout the summer.
