Outdoor Education Counselor Manual.
Garbutt, Barbara; And Others
An outdoor education counselor manual was developed as a sample guide to aid Oakland County (Michigan) student camp counselors in preparing for their camp experience, so they will understand their role in the total program. A welcome to student counselors briefly lists their responsibilities. A section on the purpose of the manual notes counselors' two major responsibilities (supervising their instruction group and assisting adult teachers and naturalists in the field instructional program) and points out that student discipline is not the student counselors' responsibility. Staff rules, general rules, and student rules are specified. A sample daily schedule and shower schedule are given, as are sample duty schedules for tablehoppers, kitchen police, and swampers (shower cleaners). A specific clothing and equipment list is provided for students and their parents. (MH)
