Summer Staff Questions - Good Leaders Ask Great Questions Series (5 of 10)

  



Inspired by E.J. Lugo

This is our 5th 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

 

5th IN THE SERIES QUESTIONS ARE

Engaging summer camp staff is crucial for a successful camp experience. Here is the fifth set or 5 of 10 questions designed to determine the engagement levels of summer camp staff:

1) How has the spirit of camp light up in each child? (Caring, compassion, kindness, or other mushy value that is part of your vision and mission)

2) Is there something you sense you need that you are not getting? (support, sleep, items) When your personal issues get triggered, who or what helps? How do you ask for help?

3) What do you find most rewarding about your job? (Identifying what they find rewarding can help gauge what aspects of the job they are most passionate about.}

 

At the half way point of summer. Have a great session.

Check back next week for the next set of questions.

Engaging summer camp staff is crucial for a successful camp experience. Here is the fourth set or 4 of 10 questions designed to determine the engagement levels of summer camp staff:

1) Are there any camper problems from home that have surfaced that concern you? or

Tell about each camper’s leadership moment? Tell me about a camper who took a risk with leadership?

2) Is there a piece of leadership you are struggling with?

3) Looking back at the orientation week, how do you feel about the training and support you’ve received? (Assessing their view on training and support can indicate whether they feel prepared and valued, which is crucial for engagement.)

 

I hope you and your team are having another great session.
