CAMP JAKE: Honing life skills

In an effort to continue fundamental life skills training, counselors will focus on teaching campers time management this summer. Time management is a highly marketable life skill used in:
  • Effective planning
  • Goal and deadline setting
  • Delegating responsibilities
  • Prioritizing activities
  • Allocating sufficient time for activities

At the beginning of the week, each participant will be given his or her own watch: braille timepieces for the blind, vibrating watches for the deaf and standard watches for the remaining campers.

Various opportunities for time management will be presented throughout the week to encourage campers to use their watches and responsibly plan their daily activities. We look forward to seeing the campers using their new-found skills outside Camp Jake!
