Gender-Inclusive Summer Camps: A Free Webinar for Camp Professionals
Jan 02, 2018
Camp professionals get lots of questions from prospective parents. Will my picky eater find anything at lunch? Where are my child’s counselor’s from? Is the waterfront safe?
Most camp staff can handle these kinds of questions, but Camp Directors and staff today are often be faced with questions from some parents that they may not be fully prepared to answer. Families with children who identify as Transgender, Non-binary or Gender-expansive may bring new questions when they are considering your camp for the summer — but are you prepared to respond?
