Working with children who have cancer leads many of our programs and people to become content experts on the childhood cancer experience and how that plays out at camp (or in other settings). There are, of course, many other influences on behavior that transcend a cancer diagnosis: other health, developmental, and mental health diagnoses, ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences), life experiences like pandemics, and so much more. All of this “baggage” our campers bring to camp is often a whole lot more to unpack than what is in their suitcase! And guess what… the behavior of our staff and volunteers is also influenced by their own baggage. This webinar will help identify some of the additional challenges many of our camper and staff may bring with them to our programs, but more importantly, will offer some tricks, tips, and tools on how to prevent (whenever possible) or manage (whenever necessary) behavioral challenges that may result.
Join Brandon G. Briery, PhD, COCA President and Chief Program Officer/Executive Camp Director at Camp C.A.M.P. (Children's Association for Maximum Potential) in San Antonio, TX as he takes us through this discussion around camper and staff behavior.
