The 2015 National American Camp Association Conference. Winston, Chelsea and Mary are glad to be in New Orleans with the opportunity to spend 4 days with 1500 camp people. Some are colleagues we have known for 30+ years, others are brand new to camping.
The day was great, with a keynote address by Jessica Lahey. (Educator, Speaker, Author.) She spoke about Intrinsic Motivation- how to build that character trait in kids. Her book “The Gift Of Failure: How The Best Parents Learn To Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed” will be released August, 2015. We learned much, and are encouraged about things we are intentional about doing every day at Sonlight – it’s affirming to hear how we are impacting kids in a positive way.
We’re enjoying New Orleans- great food and the sights!
