Summer Staff Questions - Good Leaders Ask Great Questions Series (3 of 10)

 


Inspired by E.J. Lugo

This is our 3rd week this summer, I'll be posting several questions that you should consider asking our staff team at Summer Camp.

These questions can help camp directors and supervisors assess the engagement levels of their staff, providing insights that can be used to enhance the overall camp experience for both staff and campers.

BACKGROUND: I spent several months in research and consultation with human resource professionals as well as the most common questions that monitor team engagement, establish connection with team, and help improve team engagement with your campers. They can lead to thoughtful conversations about, summer goals and aspirations, setting priorities, and developing new ideas as well as skill enhancement.

Remember, all questions are like Ogres. Okay, if you don't get the reference, but here is the video link. Questions or layered and you can dig deep or go in a deep dive in a discussion.




The questions are organized into three categories. Chose to use one or all three. Just make sure that your team members know that they are going to be asked.

1) Camper Engagement Questions - designed to make sure that your team member is engaging with their campers.

2) Personal Development Question - designed to "check in" and connect with a team member.

3) Overall Check In Question

 

OUR NEXT SERIES OF QUESTIONS ARE

Engaging summer camp staff is crucial for a successful camp experience. Here is the third set or 3 of 10 questions designed to determine the engagement levels of summer camp staff:

1)  What activities do each/all of your campers enjoy? Which camper is your most serious? Who is your silliest?

2) Who have you made friends with? OR Which staff member have you admired the most?

3) Can you share a memorable moment or highlight from your time here? (By now your engaged staff often have positive experiences they are eager to share.)

 

I hope you and your team our having a great week. Check back next week for the next set of questions.
