Suggested ideas on conducting a managerial workshop for camp directors are offered in this trainer's guide. Workshops must be at least one full day of training (6 hours) on each topic to be counted toward the American Camping Association (ACA) Camp Director Certification Program. Suggested topics to be addressed are: (1) basic principles and concepts of the management area; (2) accepted techniques and innovations in the selected area; (3) interrelationships of the support system to the camp goals, program, and other service areas; and (4) government regulations and sources of information. Steps to developing and implementing a managerial workshop include determining needs and interests of participants; contacting the ACA Regional Education Coordinator for resource people and ideas; arranging for a workshop meeting place and establishing fees; organizing an advisory committee to determine workshop schedule and workshop content; and selecting and orienting special resource persons or trainers. Performance objectives are presented along with a suggested program and activities outline for the managerial workshop. Samples of evaluation forms, performance questionnaires, case studies, quizzes, worksheets on budgeting, and three resource sheets pertaining to budgeting, suggested readings and marketing are provided.
