End of the week camp resource round-up!

It’s the weekend! For some of you that means time off, but many of you are probably out serving rental groups at your camps. But before you head into next week, I thought I’d provide a few links you might find helpful. They deal with three very different topics, and at the very least, they’ll be something to think about!

Five Online Learning Resources to Help You Run a Better Business

I think the information in this article is useful for nonprofits and camps as well, depending on how far your particular camp takes its marketing, fund development, and public relations efforts.

Team Building Activities, Initiative Games, and Problem Solving Exercises

This is a fun little list of engaging team-building games that you can use in a variety of settings. You might want to try some of them with your staff to break the ice, develop communication, and get them to interact with one another positively and purposefully. This would be especially helpful if you’ve hired some new staff at the beginning of this fall season.

You might also want to develop a program to offer team-building workshops to corporate or school groups. These types of services are sought-after, and might attract clients to consider a retreat at your camp.

Maybe some windy weather has rendered your trails impassable, or maybe the group just seems more suited to arena riding — either way, playing some games in the arena is a great idea. Without even realizing it, the riders will be developing skill at controlling their horse, and they will be more engaged with you, their horse, and the other participants. Having some solid arena game ideas can really add to your horse program!
