5 Minute Expert Talks
Season 1, Episode 24
EmJ Juszczyk is joined by Sami Eron to recap and share with you TSCS Spring Retreat 2023 Five Minute Expert Talks.
The idea behind 5 Minute Expert Talks is that everyone is an expert in something. What is something you can talk on because you know so much about it? This group of individuals shared things from the way dog training can work for you, to why your camp should have a berry picking permit.
If you’re looking for some quick inspiration and new perspectives, this is the podcast for you.
Producer EmJ’s takeaways:
Camp songs are made up. You can add education and inclusion to yours when you ask your staff to create their own.
Invest in camp professionals as a whole.
What’s one thing you can do today that you’re not good at?
Think the retreat sounds cool?
It really is. There's no professional development like it.
We had EIGHT amazing camp professionals share on this episode. Check out their bios here!
