Trainer Guide: Site and Facilities Managerial. Camp Administration Series.
Farley, Elizabeth, Ed.
Composed of two units, the managerial trainer guide addresses the planning and maintenance of camp site and facilities. Designed to provide the camp director with the knowledge and skills necessary to plan and maintain the site and facilities, the guide includes a pre-assessment checklist, performance objectives, suggested activities and resources, a post-assessment survey, and a 77-item bibliography. The suggested activities list presents a broad range of suggested topics categorized under four major headings: general planning, history's role in camp development, planning application, and influences. Each topic area includes the performance objectives to be accomplished, the type of resources required, time frame, and assessment criteria. The guide also includes an outline for maintaining camp facilities and properties, maintenance problems worksheet, and sample report forms (i.e., work order request and log, equipment and supply inventory, maintenance inspection building checklist, general maintenance inspection checklist, comparative shopping form, emergency telephone checklist, and mechanical equipment record). Appendices include samples of a managerial budget, workshop report, and evaluation form. An introduction briefly discusses why managerial training is part of the Camp Director Education Program, why the needs of special populations (e.g., handicapped) are addressed in the Camp Director Education Program, and the managerial coordinator's role.
