Standing in the front at lunch, I say “Rest Period!,” and the staff yells back “Best Period!” Hopefully, the campers didn’t see their eye rolls.
An important part of the day, rest period (or rest time, or siesta – whatever you call it!) can be a least favorite of your staff. They want to rest, and campers don’t. Disconnect.
This PDF is a handout for counselors on how they can transform rest period into truly one of the best periods of the day. If you’d like to know what you can do as a director, read this (then come back and get this resource for your staff!).
