Staff Training is upon us! Adventure Village Counselors and Trip Leaders are now entering their final week of Staff Training as they prepare for the campers to arrive. In order to prepare, the staff have been practicing their hard skills and some even went through a week-long, intensive WFR (Wilderness First Responder) course, which they all passed with flying colors.
Last week, the staff went on a three day, two night backpacking trip here in the Catskills, where they practiced their hard skills and bonded as a team. The weather was sunny and the staff hiked back onto camp with smiling faces as they prepared to pack in at the new Bud Cox Trip Center for the first time. The trip was made that much easier thanks to the new Trip Center, as pack out and pack in had never been quicker.
This week, the staff will practice their soft skills, plan activities, and prepare for their trips as they gear up for the campers’ arrival on Sunday.
Adventure is out there!
