If you are bringing your leaders to camp at the same time as the campers, they are not in the best position to lead (especially if the leader has never been to that particular camp before).
At Destiny Church’s Preteen Camp, the leaders go up the day before the campers do. This gives them a chance to receive some training, become settled in, pray for the camp, and build team cohesion before the campers even arrive.
Today on the podcast, Sean talks with Chris (Director of Camper Experience) about the many benefits of this strategy.
