Session Info for Liaisons
Professional Development (PD) Sessions
These sessions were developed in response to topic areas submitted by Directors in camps’ Cornerstone application. PD sessions aim to provide you with new skills, ideas, and networking opportunities with other Liaisons and Faculty.
During PD blocks 2 and 3, in addition to a full menu of Jewish programming sessions, Liaisons who are working year-round for their camp can opt to participate in a “bite-sized” option (a shorter workshop) and use the balance of the time block for the work that just can’t wait.
There are 3 unique programming blocks for Liaisons. You’ll register for one session in each block.
PD1 – Liaison Networking and Open Space: Facilitated by Cornerstone Advisor Faculty, you’ll have the opportunity to get to meet other Liaisons and discuss topics that are top-of-mind for you going into the summer season.
PD 2 – General Workshops: Led by Cornerstone Advisor Faculty, these sessions focus on leadership, management, and team building.
PD 3 – Jewish Experiential Workshops: Your fellows aren’t the only ones who get to learn from the Cornerstone Advisor and Educator faculty members. In this block, you can choose from a variety of sessions designed and facilitated with an eye towards immersive Jewish programming.
These inventive and creative prayerful experiences are meant to help you consider fresh ways of approaching prayer or spirituality for yourself, your campers, or your peers.
You’ll register for TWO Eat•Pray•Dare sessions, one for Tuesday and one for Wednesday.
Evening Experiences are opportunities for Fellows and Liaisons together to dive deeper into personal development and to consider their own Jewish life and leadership beyond camp more broadly. Some sessions are available each night and some offered only once.
Register for TWO different Evening Experiences, one for Monday and one for Tuesday.
OPTIONAL Overnight Campout
Bring your sleeping bag and your appetite! Join our educator, Josh Lake, for an optional overnight experience: gather ’round the campfire late into the night, eat s’mores, sing-a-long with a guitar, experience and learn innovative campfire programming, and spend the evening dreaming beneath the stars!
If you choose to attend, you will leave for the overnight after Tuesday’s evening song+dance session and return before Breakfast on Wednesday morning.
NOTE: Please pack your own sleeping bag, flashlight, and warm clothes.
