Youth Camps (2 Modules)


E1. Behavior Management in Youth Camps (44 mins)

The Challenge – when working in youth camps, managing camper behavior issues may be one of the most difficult, frustrating, and challenging tasks that your staff will face. We’ve yet to discover a singular approach to behavior management that works best for everyone.

The Solution – This behavior management webinar is based on the idea that all behavior can be boiled down to two types: behavior you want to enforce (desirable behavior) and behavior you want to extinguish (undesirable behavior). Attendees will walk away with a behavior management training framework that balances prevention strategies with interventions strategies that your staff can implement right away.

The Presenters – Jeff Heiser, Senior Asst. Director at UC Davis; Shannon Vaccaro, Assistant Director at Nebraska-Lincoln.

Learning Outcomes:
Understand desirable behavior and undesirable behavior.
Learn effective techniques to prevent undesirable behavior as well as to intervene with undesirable behavior.

E2. Missing Child Procedures 

The Challenge – A missing camper is your worst nightmare!  And it can happen so quickly!  With so many campus locations to search, responding quickly and effectively can be a daunting task.

The Solution – You need to develop a systematic plan based on creating a realistic and efficient search time-frame.  This webinar will walk you through what you must do to ensure your missing camper protocol is speedy and effective.  The important roles of camp staff and Campus Security will also be highlighted.

The Presenter – Alison Fisher, Camp Director, University of Regina.

Learning Outcomes:
Understand the potential impact of a missing camper – on you, your program and the University.

Back to SportRisk Training Videos

In July of 2015 California State University, Chico had the opportunity to participate in Sport Risk’s new ‘Best Practices’ risk management review conducted by Ian McGregor & Associates. Ian is clearly one of the most knowledgable and experienced leaders in risk management practices and our institution was excited to be one of the first Universities to use this new evaluation process. 

 While evaluating our programs we found his work to be innovative, comprehensive, and easy to use throughout all aspects of our various recreation programs. Because of his outstanding work we are using the recommendations as a catalyst for program improvement.  Being able to contrast our practices with other NIRSA institutions is invaluable in bringing our programs to a higher standard of excellence. Without hesitation, I would recommend this process to any collegiate recreation program who is interested in current, state of the art, risk management practices. You will find Ian McGregor and Associates to be professional and cost effective in helping you meet your administrative responsibilities.
