Program directors, staff, and youth workers will learn to recognize and address the most commonly reported sexual incidents in this guide to nonpredatory sexual issues and behaviors in small group settings. Issues addressed include children with sexual knowledge beyond their maturity level, participants who have had previous sexual encounters, and incidents involving sexual behaviors between staff or in front of participants. While being careful not to offer any canned solutions or step-by-step plans, this guide offers camp directors guidance on how to minimize sexual incidents, create a safe camp community, and explore their own values to more carefully incorporate those values in the program setting. This guide to handling relationships, attachments, and normal sexual curiosity is ideal for anyone who works with children, youth, or young adults in a setting that encourages new personal interaction.
