Summer Staff Questions - Good Leaders Ask Great Questions Series (2 of 10)


Inspired by E.J. Lugo

This is our 2nd week of summer, I'll be posting several questions that you should consider asking your 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


LET'S CONTINUE

Engaging summer camp staff is crucial for a successful camp experience. Here is the second set or 2 of 10 questions designed to determine the engagement levels of summer camp staff:

1)  What campers are not buying into camp experience? What campers are having homesick issues on the second and third nights?

2) What did you not expect that happened this week?

3) How would you describe your experience working here so far? (The purpose of this open-ended question is to allow staff to express their thoughts and feelings about their job, which can indicate their level of engagement.)


My best to you and your team his week. Check back next week for the next set of questions.
