Emma is a breath of fresh air … just like camp! Emma presented to a jam-packed room of over 100 day camp directors and senior staff at the Annual Ontario Camps Association’s Conference. She was engaging, relevant and relatable! The feedback from her session was overwhelming super positive! Her upbeat approach along with realistic examples helped everyone in attendance walk away with a better understanding of what anxiety can look like, how those butterflies we all experience (that includes ALL of us … directors, staff, campers and even their parents) can actually be put to good use and most importantly Emma helped equip all of us in attendance with the tools to help our camp communities recognize when we should push through anxiety vs. reach out for more support. Many of those in attendance are looking forward to Emma presenting to our front-line staff and we know our families would benefit from hearing Emma speak as well!
