 Michael coined the term “The Intentional Camp” years ago to describe places that are truly driven by the specific mission of building great people through the camp experience. The real purpose of camp is not just fun and “making memories.” The best camps reach for an even higher goal: using the fun and experiential activities of camp to teach skills for lifetime success, embodiment of Jewish values, and outstanding character. Based on his 2018 best-selling book, Growing Great Qualities in Kids, Michael brings his trademark, “use-it-immediately” tools and dynamic energy to this exciting session that shows us how to be sure that we make this happen every day. For example: Do we really teach how to make friends? Do we have special techniques to be sure our program teaches persistence and respect? We can do this and more. You’ll take home training activities and specific techniques to inspire and lead staff to make real differences in our program participants that will last a lifetime.
