Say Thank You to Your Camp Staff with Class
If you had incorporated the Guardian Angels idea at the beginning of the summer, now is the time to be sure each person on staff takes the time to write a letter of thanks. Hopefully, they have received several letters by this time from the person who has been their Guardian Angel throughout the summer. Ask the staff to write a short letter explaining what summer camp has meant to them and how they have grown. Be sure the letters are mailed out this week before the Fall gets underway.
Your Turn to Say Thanks - In September, take the time to send a hand written note to each and every staff member. Thank them for the summer, for all their hard work and dedication and be sure to note something special that you appreciated about each individual. This make seem a time consuming task but the dividends will be well worth it. If your staff is simply too large for one person to write all the cards, divide the task among a few of your full time people.
Letting people know how much they are appreciated is such an important part of Camp.
Hope your summer was simply amazing!
