Culture of Belonging

Culture of Belonging

Season 1, Episode 11

Jack is joined by TSCS’s very own Allison Krabill & Alice Hospitel to talk the culture of belonging for your staff at camp. We’ve all been there, our first day of a new job, school, or group. The make or break moments of first impressions and what to expect upon arrival. On the podcast, these three talk ideas and plans for how to make your staff feel connected and have a sense that they belong there.

If you’re looking for real ways to plan staff arrival and camp culture (WITH ways to delegate these plans) , this is the pod for you.

Producer EmJ’s takeaways:

  1. Without relationships at camp, not much else can happen.

  2. Is Taylor Swift a camp director?

  3. Seeing things for the first time is a superpower.


Show Notes:

Our Guests

Alice HospitelAlice Hospitel

Alice, the Director of Member Success at The Summer Camp Society, is the world's best connector. Okay, that's what Jack says. They are classically trained in fine arts, play a mean zombie at camp, and run the Stomping Ground CIT program. 

More than anything, Alice thinks way outside the box while somehow building authentic relationships with everyone they meet.


Allison KrabillAllison Krabill

Allison Krabill first chanted the camp name to light the magic campfire at age 6 and quickly became that one kid that never stops talking about camp. At 28, she became one of the youngest YMCA executive directors in the country as she led YMCA Camp Immokalee through doubling the budget, master planning, board restructuring, capital improvements, and more. She loves being a camp director to camp directors through TSCS and will never turn down a game of a Gaga.
