Every summer, millions of youth participate in out-of-school activities from summer camps to athletic programs to reading clubs. The goals for families during the summer is to provide a safe and caring environment for their children while the main goal for youth is to have a good time and hang out with friends.
Summer programs and other settings where children and youth gather provide opportunities for inappropriate behaviors like bullying to occur. Children engaging in new activities, meeting new friends, establishing new social groups, and even sharing living quarters at camp, present challenges to even the most well-adjusted child.
Equip your staff with the knowledge and skills to appropriately address bullying that may happen during summer programming. Prevention strategies from the evidence-based Olweus Bullying Prevention Program will be shared as well as appropriate ways to intervene when bullying is witnessed by adults.
This training is geared toward adults who work with youth during short-term summer programing, including summer camps, clubs, athletics, summer day camps, and church camps. The $60 registration fee includes a copy of the Bullying Prevention for Summer Youth Programs Guide.
