Tri-State Camp Conference This Week!

This coming week is the BIGGEST WEEK in the Camp Industry- It's the Tri-State Camp Conference- The largest gathering of Camp professionals in the entire world gathers each March in Atlantic City for over 180 educational sessions ranging from staff training to youth development to facility management.  In addition, there is an exhibit hall with close to 300 vendors selling everything from waterslides to frozen pizza to database systems.

Our own Andy Pritikin is an American Camp Association Board Member has been  one of the curators of this conference for the past 17 years, serving as the Program Chair, the Conference Chair, and currently the Professional Development Chair.  This year, Andy Pritikin is leading SIX educational sessions for his colleagues to learn from.  When you ask "what do you do the rest of the year", this is one of the big ones for Andy- and Jason, Brandi, Jill, Ellyn, Stu, Joe, Caitlin, Emmy, Chris, Justin, Casey, and Miss Michelle- all of whom plan on being in Atlantic City to energize us for the next 100 days leading up to the first day of Camp- Yipeeeee!!!!!

Look out for a quick blog next week on what we learned (and bought) for Summer 2011...
