Gym Jam Camp Staff Training

Allison Horn

In order to effectively supervise children, we have to make sense of not only their behavior, but also the context in which the behavior occurs. During my workshops we become active participants in cooperative and team games in order to appreciate what our campers experience during dynamic play. By manipulating situations and scenarios, we explore the different ways children might feel, communicate, and react. We learn how to understand our campers by actually becoming our campers!
