2 | Staff Recruitment:  In this series of The Summer Camp Society Podcast episodes we are taking a deep dive addressing how staff recruitment is needed more than ever and what the people around the camp community are doing about it. 

 On this episode, Jack Schott and Chris Rehs-Dupin turn to staff recruitment tactics with an emphasis in retraining former seasonal staff and how to keep them fired up in the on and off seasons.  Often in the heat of the summer we don’t take the time to celebrate the wins, but at the end of the day, that’s what staff will remember. 

The guys examine a multitude of avenues to get in touch with potential staff, including but limited to Tik Tok stars, gift giving and roller skating parties. If you’re looking for more than the average hype tactics, this is the pod for you. 

Producer EmJ’s takeaways:

  1. Know when staff need to celebrate & recap the joy
  2. I hope Simone is listening too, Jack
  3. National & international resources are great, but do you have someone in your community doing equity work that you could work with?

Next week the staff recruitment conversation will continue with 
Sarah Kurtz McKinnon and Carly Vargas!
