    NHRPA is offering a fun and virtual way to kick-off your summer staff training this summer on Thursday, June 3rd from 5:30pm – 8:45pm. We have some dynamic speakers who will provide your departments with some valuable information to use for this upcoming summer season. The night will kick off with a virtual presentation by Lisa Drennan who is an innovative leader with a demonstrated commitment to building inclusive communities. Lisa possesses a specialty with over 36 years’ experience in supporting individuals with diverse abilities.

    From 5:30pm-7:00pm Lisa will be talking about “Strategies to Include Participants with Disabilities”. In the presentation you will review the principles of inclusion, understand and practice inclusion strategies, giving you the tools and confidence to welcome, engage and support participants with disabilities (with focus on COVID considerations). Explore best practices around working with families, dealing with behaviors. Apply strategies by solving inclusion scenarios that occur in recreation settings.

    Then we will switch gears and meet Roz and Jed Buck who have done what many married couples consider to be “the impossible”...They have worked together, side by side, for almost 20 years. From 2004 – 2016, they owned and directed Meadowbrook Day Camp, a large private day camp in New Jersey, where they loved making a difference in the lives of their campers and enjoyed training a staff of over 400 each summer. Since launching Roz and Jed Training & Consulting in 2016, their innovative training techniques and energetic presentations have consistently generated outstanding reviews from session participants and organizers across the country.  Roz and Jed have shared their messages with thousands of individuals while presenting in 26 different states and Canada.

    From 7:15pm – 8:45pm you will learn how to be ready to give the children we serve a safe and fun summer at our programs, and having our staff excited, motivated, and well-prepared! Roz and Jed are excited to join us for this highly interactive online workshop where they will kick-off 2021 staff training for our seasonal summer staff with a collection of activities designed to prepare them for an amazing summer with our campers! The sun is shining . . . The grass is turning green . . . The days are warming, and we all know what that means . . . Summer is coming soon!

    Participants should plan to join from their own computer, preferably not a mobile device, with their audio and video on and ready to participate in all the activities to maximize their learning.
