A few of the activities conducted, training methods or techniques utilized, and suggestions offered for further program and staff development are mentioned together with an evaluation of Director response to the program and counselor interest. Additional comments are made regarding scheduling and communication, financial aspects, vehicles, equipment, and future programming. (BL)
