Day Camp Staffing - Part 2 - Day Camp Pod #14
Retaining, Engaging and Training Your Day Camp Staff Like A Pro
So, we did one episode on Day Camp Staffing, and we said we were going to another one.
Let’s get real, the more Kim Aycock the better, right? How could it be any better?
How about we add in a little DR. G to the mix!
Oh YES! WE DID THAT.
As we inch (leap) closer and closer to the summer, staffing is surely starting to eclipse many of our other responsibilities. Consequently, this can be a little stressful because we may be balancing still filling staff spots while intentionally starting to create and foster community with your new hires.
Listen in to find out about:
How to keep staff on board and avoid being “ghosted”
Different platforms and methods to keep staff engaged as the summer gets closer
Creative ways to help staff get their paperwork and other business items in
How to use your returning staff to begin creating community with the new staff
How to begin to invest in your staff’s future and show that you really care about their growth
