How do you practice patience skills at your summer camp?
In this week's episode of The Scott Arizala Show we talked about any essential skill for any summer camp leader: Patience. Scott talked about his own experience losing patience with a staff member, how he resolved the situation and then gives us some ideas of ways we can train our camp counsellors to be more patient.
