Recorded Webinar - Child Protection 101: Responding as a Camp Professional
Non-Member: $74.00Your price
This program informs camp professionals about child protection from a camp perspective. It addresses physical abuse – how to limit it and, when it occurs, how to respond appropriately — but also includes mental, emotional, and social abuse of campers. What forms do these problems take at camp? How do we draw the lines and take action? While the webinar provides an introduction for the novice camp director, it’s also a refresher for those who are more experienced.
By the end of the webinar participant will learn:
- List at least three strategies that help protect campers from abuse (physical, mental, emotional and/or social);
- Describe how to identify and respond to an abuse situation when it occurs or is disclosed; and
- Set behavior boundaries that help protect youth and camp staff.
Presenters: Ann Franke, Esq. and Linda Erceg, RN, MS, PHN

Known for her work with ACA's Healthy Camps initiative and the Association of Camp Nurses, Linda brings many moons of camp nursing experience to this webinar, experience that includes helping camp professionals address child protection as well as working with campers and staff who have been abused.
