Welcome to the show, Kim Aycock!
The American Camp Association (ACA) recently held its virtual staff summit. The event featured talented speaker panellists, roundtables and other learning sessions. One big topic that we’ve already covered was staffing shortages and discussing new innovative ways to recruit and retain staff. Today, we are fortunate enough to sit down with Kim Aycock who is known in the camp industry as a staff training expert.
At the staff summit, experts explored trends we are seeing in the industry and go to hear about some common challenges that organizations are faced with. In this episode, we unravel the challenges and then we ask Kim to explore some of the solutions that she heard to help camp leaders begin to prepare for next summer.

Best Practice for Leadership Training
From Kim Aycock
We all know staff training is important to camp success. As part of training, perhaps you can develop an internal certification program as a way to recognize the training your staff takes. Level one certification can be mandatory training required for all staff and level two certificates can focus on specific training and can be optional. Those who take part in the optional certificate programs can be eligible for leadership opportunities and can proudly show off their skills with pins or stickers to show what certificates they have completed.
