What's on your mind? - CampHacker #97
Uncertainty is a Killer of Good Work...and Other Debatable Statements
What's on your mind right now?It's fair to say that it's getting into "crunch time", but it's also probably fair to say that there's still some time to think.And when there's time to think, there's sometimes a space created in a section of our brains that is reserved for vulnerability. Whatever that is to you - uncertainty, concern, doubt, worry - thoughts like these have a way of floating in and settling in the spaces in-between your day to day. These thoughts don't exactly impede our progress, but if left un-dusted, the can certainly prevent us from moving forward on potentially critical aspects of our upcoming season.This episode is for some of those thoughts. It's also for the thoughts that are on the minds of our CampHackers and Camp Pros in the community. Travis and Joe are joined by good friend of the show, Paul Sheridan from Four Winds, Westward Ho to share not only what's on their minds in February of 2017, but to comment on some other Camp Pro's thoughts from around the camping community. Tune in to hear thoughts on:UncertaintyEmbracing change (both for yourself and for your staff/organization)Best advice for a new Director or management in your organizationHow to deal with the feeling of loneliness after a season of camp is overWhat's on your mind?

I could listen for hours!
I'm an intern for a year-round camp, most of my job now consists of listening to these podcasts for new, fresh ideas for our summer camp. I HIGHLY recommend these to all camp professionals. It's so important to share ideas and build our camp community!
