This ambitious text is filled with activities and programming techniques especially suited for use in the informal, rustic atmosphere of a modern camp. It describes essential skills for living in the out-of-doors and emphasizes face-to-face leadership skills. It covers a wide range of trends, philosophies, and practices valuable for today's organized camping movement, including: outdoor adventure programs, behavior management, leadership styles, substance abuse, ecological concepts, health problems, food and meal planning, proper attire, and reducing human impact on the land. In the modern camp, adequate training and skill are required of staff members who fill important leadership roles. Students enrolled in courses on organized camping and outdoor leadership, agencies and organizations that sponsor camping programs and related outdoor activities, prospective counselors, camp directors who conduct pre-camp or in-camp training courses, and camp counselors and program staff will profit from Camp Counseling's breadth of coverage, enduring qualities, and adaptability.
