As a leader within your community, it’s imperative that your organization provides staff and participants with a safe space where they can work together to resolve conflicts. Through restorative justice, your camp can help create communities and systems within it that will build connections, partnerships and empathy. It’s with this practice that your organization can heal and prevent harm, as well as build community.
ACTIVE partnered with The Summer Camp Society and Camp Stomping Ground for an informative webinar to help you understand restorative justice and how you can implement best practices to improve your organization for your staff, participants and even your community.
- Ensure all voices within your community are heard and validated
- Build empathy and social-emotional skills for campers and staff
- Be aware of and examine implicit bias
- Empower staff and campers to feel a sense of belonging and ownership in your community
