Episode 60: Our Favourite Books for Professional Development



Patti and Professor Dave chat about some of the books that have helped them become better camp leaders, we learn about Dave’s AWESOME job as a teen, and the workshop he’s going to run at the inaugural Digital Summer Camp Con (Sign up now!), as well as Patti’s cool Canadian Camping experience… and that maybe she can’t count.  (Six books? Really Patti?)
