If you have a few minutes, watch this TEDx presentation by Steve Baskin, director of Camp Champion in Texas. Steve talks about the importance of interpersonal skills. There is no better place to practice these skills than in the unplugged world of summer camp!
A few of my favorite quotes from the presentation:
Camp is a place where “we unplug and we are together with other human beings.”
Camp “gave me the chance to turn my personality on.”
“This world requires a set of skills in order to be successful. Summer camp, an environment devoid of technology may be the place to learn these skills.”
