CAMP

TUESDAY, may 26, 2020

    SOLD OUT!  

Boot Camp Session II is on the way! Email us to be notified when date, time, and registration info is released.

When was the last time you left a Zoom meeting and said “That was zAWESOME”?

From Hebrew school to Hillels, Shabbat services to staff meetings, we often talk about making programs feel more like camp. But camp isn’t a place, it’s a philosophy. To camplify your programming means to bring the magic of connection, relationships, and meaning to the user experience…no matter the sector, demographic, or season! Boot Camp is for anyone looking to spice up their virtual game. You don’t need to be a camp professional to be a masterful online facilitator. But it is essential to know the latest Zoom tricks, fresh facilitation techniques, and how to build culture within the confines of a screen...and beyond.

THE EXPERTS

Join distinguished leaders from across the field for an experiential, camp-style gathering that trains you to harness critical skills in virtual facilitation and remote experience design. You’ll walk away with inspiration, tools, and modalities that can profoundly engage your community. And, maybe, just maybe… a paper plate award and some Oprah-style giveaways.
