Shared Language

Shared Language

Season 1, Episode 23


Jack Schott is joined by Mario Del Cueto and they talk business school merging with camp, ideas on how corporations can support your youth, and even get into the nitty gritty of what it could look like to buy a camp from a business perspective.

If you’re looking for a podcast that talks the more “business side” of camps and incorporating corporate into your operations, this is the pod for you.

Producer EmJ’s takeaways:

  1. It’s cool to be reminded that we bring shared languages into other parts of our lives and what we do to invite others into that. When we think of staff training, what are shared pieces of language you need to tell your staff about?

  2. We don’t know what we don’t know, and people don’t always share what they know. I liked hearing from two people about the process of what camp buying could look like. Gatekeeping the purchase of a camp? Not here.

  3. I love the idea that employee benefits could include a camp stipend for their children.
