It’s been a while since I have blogged. Anna Clayton said I needed to tell y’all what we’ve been up to this month and I am more than happy to do that!!
Speaking of camp conferences, we feel that it is very important to continue our education as camp professionals so we attend at least one camp conference every year. We always go to the CODA conference and try to switch years with ACA, 3CA and CampMinder. This gives us time with other camp professionals and to learn about things that are happening in the camp world. We typically split up and go to different sessions which include all types of day and night programming, alumnae, child development, leadership, communications, health, maintenance, insurance (not a favorite, however we do love our insurance guys. They are pictured with us above left) and lawyer talk (again, not a favorite). Guess which ones I get to go too? You guessed it…..Insurance and Lawyer talk.
We just returned from the 2023 CODA conference in Orlando, FL. All of us had great “take aways” and have been talking about them ever since. Each year this conference is in a different city. We have been to Orlando several times as well as New Orleans, Atlanta, Sacramento, Boulder, Austin and San Antonio. This group of ladies work so hard to make camp a special place, Larry and I thought a day and a half in Disney would be fun.
P.S. I know y’all maybe wondering if Frances got to ride any “feet on the ground” rides and catch some of the shows, yes she did!
Sally is a Rome, Georgia native and started attending Camp Skyline in 1977. She loved the camp experience so much she wanted to give back, so she became a counselor. In 1997 she and her husband Larry purchased camp and haven’t looked back!
