Tips & Tidbits

I hope everyone had a great first week of camp and a restful long weekend! Last week proved that I definitely need to adjust to the new, busy schedule that comes along with summer camp.

I checked out the ZingTrain website to see if they had any tips to offer so I can juggle my time spent at camp versus on non-camp tasks, and found their "Practical Tips for Better Time Management" webinar presented by Joanie Hales. If you can budget the hour to watch the recorded webinar, or take time to read through their slides, I highly recommend it! Joanie offers a lot of really helpful tips and reminders that I definitely needed to hear in order to better organize my time this summer.
