As you may have read, GAC was on the road this summer to surprise our 5-year campers who participated in the GALA Program with their 5-year blanket. We're excited to spotlight each of the amazing campers we visited.
This week's 5-year camper spotlight is on Millie K.! Millie is a sweet camper with an extremely kind heart. This summer, Millie's counselors said of her, "Millie is a great active listener. She is super respectful and she's always able to build off of what other people say." We are so lucky to have a camper like Millie as part of our community.
Check out this video of Millie receiving her surprise 5-Year Blanket!
Why can't school be more like camp? It can!
For years we've heard testimonials from our counselors about how they get life-changing training at camp that helps them become fantastic parents and amazing teachers who create positive classroom communities.
Camp counselors master connecting with and forming positive relationships with their campers - and they learn to coach campers on the friendship skills they need to make and keep friends.
The GAC Director team is thrilled to be bringing fun, engaging "camp counselor"-style trainings to educators through GATA - the Gold Arrow Teacher Academy.
The library of GATA resources is growing, with three webinars and 11 PDF resources of no-prep and low-prep connection activities now available on demand for GATA members.
