Bringing the Best to Upstate New York- Innovative Ideas From Coast to Coast
Jack Schott is a co-founder of The Summer Camp Society and Camp Stomping Ground. Jack and Laura Kriegel spent three years traveling the country visiting and researching summer camps before founding Stomping Ground. They visited more than 200 camps and 47 states collecting the best ideas in youth development and re-imagining what is possible in an intentional community. During Jack’s keynote, he will be sharing some of the most impactful ideas that he has learned throughout his travels, and how we can incorporate these same forward-thinking ideas at our own camps back home in Upstate New York.
Our event will be held at Camp Stella Maris in Livonia, NY. For 96 years Camp Stella Maris has been a home away from home for campers to try new and exciting things, meet new friends, and challenge themselves. Located just 30 minutes south of Rochester on the shores of Conesus Lake.
Camp Stella Maris can provide lodging for those participating in pre-conference events or who wish to arrive the night before the conference. Folks can directly reach out to the camp at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a space.
The cost is $25 for the night and there is no food provided but the camp has a kitchen and fridge for guests to use.

The course introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a 5-step action plan for how to help people in both crisis and non-crisis situations.

New Director Orientation
New Director Orientation (NDO)
NDO is an interactive course that includes activities, lectures, and discussions in a group problem-solving environment designed to address real-life situations at camp. This course covers five critical areas to help directors and supervisors develop the skills they need to be effective leaders. The core areas covered include:
- leadership and supervision
- camper and staff development and behavior
- staff training
- risk management
- evaluation and assessment
In addition to building skills, this curriculum incorporates introspection, perspective-shifting, and awareness building. This course has been influenced by years of iteration, internal and external research, and feedback from new directors. NDO is designed to be offered at the local or regional level by interested 鲸鱼电竞app赛事(鲸鱼电竞注册登录) volunteers. Completion of this training results in seven continuing education credits (CECs) for 鲸鱼电竞app赛事(鲸鱼电竞注册登录) members.
