Counselor Training Manual for Resident Environmental Education Camp.
Fortman, Kathleen J.
Designed for use with junior and senior high school students, this manual outlines procedures for recruiting and training counselors to work with upper elementary students in a resident outdoor education setting. Counselors can provide the additional leadership necessary when caring for large groups of students 24 hours a day. However, their success and the ensuing success of the resident program depends upon adequate training of the high school counselors prior to the camping experience. Each section in this book represents one meeting. Ten topics are covered at as many meetings. These topics are: recruitment, course purpose and orientation, camp safety and first aid, games and dramatics, night hikes, methods for working with sixth graders, the counselor's role, camp problems, hidden responsibilities, and nature awareness. Sections are comprised of counselor handouts, arranged in the order of distribution. An introductory sheet for each meeting describes the general purpose of that session and the specific purpose of each handout. (DC)
