Have Fun: Creating a Positive, Connected Family Culture – Parent Coffee on January 19

Want to bring some of the fun and connection of GAC home to your family this year?  Creating a close and connected family culture that promotes positive, lifelong relationships is the most important thing we can do for our children. Grab your coffee or tea, login, and join other GAC parents for our first parent coffee of 2022. We'll learn about and discuss simple, research-based and experience-backed strategies for adding more fun and connection at home. Audrey "Sunshine" Monke, who will be speaking at this coffee, is Gold Arrow Camp's Chief Visionary Officer, the author of Happy Campers: 9 Summer Camp Secrets for Raising Kids Who Become Thriving Adults, and the host of the Sunshine Parenting Podcast. Audrey regularly speaks to parents and teachers on the topics of friendship skills, connection, and well-being. See some of her past interviews and events here. All Gold Arrow Camp parents who register will be entered in our drawing for one of 10 free, signed copies of Happy Campers. Drawing will take place and winners will be notified on January 14, 2022.  Registrants will be sent a recording after the meeting as well as a PDF with the strategies and links we discuss.

Junior Counselor Application Opens Dec. 15

Junior Counselor Application Opens Dec. 15

 

“After 8 years as campers, both my daughters were JCs this year. They both had the time of their lives. They loved it even more than being GAC campers, because it had all of the fun activities and traditions, plus the added perks of being trusted with more responsibilities and additional freedoms. After 1.5 years of COVID and all its disappointments, this was just what they needed for their mindset and their self-esteem. They both made deep friendships, both gained maturity, and both retain their love for GAC and intend to go back as counselors when they’re old enough. Thank you!” – 2021 JC Parent

Gold Arrow Camp's Junior Counselor Program is designed to introduce older, returning campers to leadership roles with specific training and responsibilities in the camp environment. Our goal is for Junior Counselors (JCs) to return home confident in their leadership abilities and able to create positive change in their schools and communities. The first two weeks of the month-long program focus on building leadership skills, teamwork, and training. JC participants will spend the second two weeks engaged in hands-on leadership and camp counseling experience while working with younger campers and experienced counselors. Teens benefit greatly from a camp experience and GAC's JC Program is no exception! This program is a fun, engaging, and fulfilling opportunity for our former GAC campers completing grades 10 and 11. Let us know if you have questions or need additional information.
