Josephe Batard. Camping. April 27th , 2018.
Summer‘s over and most parents and families are storing away memories of both summer and summer camp (if they attended of course). However there are many reasons to keep thinking about summer camps and camps in general. Don‘t put thoughts of camp on mothballs!
Camps can be a valuable resource for your improving your officiating skill set as well as providing opportunities for you to network with key decision-makers and gain much-needed exposure. As you progress in your officiating career not only will your goals and needs change; so will your expectations of each camp environment. If you reach a point where you feel the camps you are attending are not providing value or honing your skills you may need to seek other camps that can satisfy your expectations.
Finding the right camp can reap rewards in your officiating career. Money and time can be wasted if your officiating goals and needs are not properly aligned with the mission of the camp itself. My intention here is to educate you to make an informed decision. The off-season camp should become an integral component in your development as an official and accelerate your progression and improvement as you pursue your officiating goals and dreams.
There may also be special guidelines such as a one-piece swimsuit for girls no speedos for the boys etc. I remember one youth pastor telling the youth to place their swimsuit on the stove-top burner and if it doesn‘t cover it completely just turn on the burner and go buy something more modest. If the summer youth camp offers crafting opportunities you may want to send along some clothes that are not new. Painting and crafts can be messy and are not the easiest thing to remove from clothes. Also don‘t forget rain gear. Summer youth camps don‘t curtail every activity just because it may be raining.
