This instructional guide serves both as a learning resource for the novice camp director and as a quick reference for the more experienced director. Covering 14 topics of study identified by the American Camping Association as core areas of knowledge for camping professionals, this book includes discussions of leadership, participation, program design, risk management, finances, marketing, site and facilities, and strategic planning. Interpretive charts, tables, and graphics illustrate both the basics and the nuances of camp administration. Each topic is followed by a series of checkpoints and questions to be used as tools for further review.
