Consisting of two units on health and safety, the trainer's guide provides suggested activities and methods of acquiring performance objectives in each unit; sample workshop schedules for 6-hour training sessions for small, average, and large groups; suggestions for organizing and using discussion groups; an annotated reference list; and support materials (i.e., training activities, sample forms for general maintenance inspection checklist, driver's daily report, camp health record, workshop evaluation, and sample budget). Performance objectives to be met in the health unit include: knowledge of physical and emotional needs of campers and staff and various methods of fulfilling those needs; identification of licenses, certificates of operation, insurance, and/or records required to meet state and local health standards; identification of sources of information for employment requirements of camp health personnel, appropriate camp health center facilities, and health center equipment and supplies; and development of a plan for health care operation with policies and procedures. Performance objectives for the safety unit are: to identify all licenses required for operation of camp according to state and/or local status and certificates of operation, insurance and/or records required for safe operation of camp; and to develop an inspection checklist, methods to eliminate or avoid risks and hazards by specifying written procedures.
