COVID-19 Resource Webinar Series

"It's Not Fair!" Things Kids Are Dealing With in a COVID-19 World

Full webinar video on YouTube

Description: Following several months of decreased interpersonal opportunities and increasing anxiety, we should expect many of our campers to struggle upon "reentry." Whether they are able to express it verbally or they show it through behavior, campers will be looking to staff for extra reassurance, support and social scaffolding as they re-learn peer interaction skills, explore new group dynamics, and adjust to changes in structure, safety measures and summer camp as they have known it. Join Emily Golinsky of Bright Moose LLC Training, Consulting & Advocacy for a great session that will help you prepare your staff with strategies, key language, and proactive measures that will enable them to successfully support campers through this complex time.

ACA Eastern Region Camp Leadership Conference

Keynote
"Outwit Your Mental Clutter: Get Ready to ROCK the Summer of 2022" (Nov. 2022)


Summary: It's shaping up to be an amazing summer at camp! And while we're excited, there are also competing feelings of stress, worry, and anxiety as we continuously re-adjust to the "new normal." How do we make sure we're ready for the challenge of creating the best.Summer.EVER! for campers and colleagues, while also taking care of ourselves? Mind traps – or cognitive distortions if you want to use the fancy term – keep us anchored in self-doubt and limit our ability to dream big and take the next steps. Clearing our mental clutter is the key to unlocking potential, and there are strategies that work to knock those mind traps out of the way and allow us to focus on the job at hand. Join Emily for a fascinating tour of the power of your brain to effect positive change in your day to day camp life. Let's get excited and ready to do summer 2022 together, with the confidence that comes from knowing you are not outmatched by the challenges that present themselves along the way.

Keynote
"Outwit Your Mental Clutter: You CAN Do 2022" (Nov. 2022)

Summary: “This one was rough” or “well, we got through it” kind of sums up the most positive things we’ve expressed about the summer of 2021, and let’s be honest – many of us were out of gas before we ever got to day 1. So how do we think forward into next year? Where do we summon the energy and strength to create new programs, build up our staff teams, re-engage our campers and families, raise more money, and on, and on, and on? Mind traps – or cognitive distortions if you want to use the fancy term – keep us anchored in self-doubt and limit our ability to dream big and take the next steps. Clearing the mental clutter is key to identifying the positive take-aways from what has been one of the toughest times we can remember for professionals in our industry, and then using those take-aways to build a plan for an even better 2022. Join Emily for a fascinating tour of your strategic needs (staff and camper MESH supports, staff hiring and retention, etc.) through the lens of cognitive distortion. You’ll come away re-enthused about your job and with the confidence that comes from knowing you are not outmatched by the challenges currently on your plate.

SPRA Summer Leadership Workshop

Keynote
"How to Maintain Morale and Energize Teams for Day Camps" (May 2021)


Excerpt: "Camp is tiring, kids can be challenging, it's hot, your socks got wet during first period and now you're pretty sure you've developed web feet...it's camp life - and we wouldn't trade it for the world. And why is that? Because it is our privilege to give kids the summer of a lifetime. It's our honor to help them make new friends and try new things. Seeing the rainbow is all about the belief that it is there. If we expect to see it, we can search for it even as we get rained on along the way. If we assume it will never come, why on earth would we stand around getting soaked?"

Keynote
"Successful Camp Experiences for All" (Feb. 2020)


Summary: Today more than ever, as youth and young adults feel increasingly marginalized and “othered,” success at camp is essential to their wellbeing. And yet, can we truly expect every camp to serve every individual? Consider that, by doing so, we are potentially putting up unintentional barriers that take us further from our goal of successfully “serving all.” In a world where “inclusion” is often a buzzword with no clear plan for successful implementation, and where it is unfortunately frequently paired with complex PR and legal ramifications, how do we determine and appropriately communicate our vision of a welcoming camp community that actually delivers on its promise? Join Emily for an engaging, thought-provoking, and solution-focused talk that will leave you energized at the idea of thinking through your camp’s plans and possibilities as part of a bigger headline story: Successful Camp Experiences for All.

"Thriving in the New Normal" (Oct. 2020)

Excerpt: “We have the choice to go into this year miserable, scared, worried about change, and barriers, and obstacles, and stress, and a never-ending list of reasons why it’s hard. OR, we can choose a different path. We can pivot not only our programs, but our personal outlook. We can focus on finding our own strengths, and those of our colleagues, and most of all, those of the kids.”
