A Quick Session Guide from 2017!
Professional Development (PD) Sessions
These sessions were developed in response to topic areas submitted by Directors in your Cornerstone application. Professional Development (PD) Sessions aim to provide you with new skills, ideas, and networking opportunities with other Liaisons and Faculty.
There are 3 kinds of PD sessions offered:
Professional Development Workshops: Led by Cornerstone Faculty, and focused on leadership, management, and Jewish programming skills
Bite-Sized Full-Time Year-Round Staff Workshops: This time offers Liaisons working year-round for their camp a short discussion related to Cornerstone management. The balance of the time block can be used for working and networking.
Spin It!: Alongside Cornerstone Fellows, you’ll experience three different approaches to programming on a common theme, providing perspectives on adapting programs. This introduces participants to a common program development framework, creating a shared language instrumental in Action Plan development and very useful in any future activity planning. What happens in these sessions will be further built upon during the “Adapt It” program with each Camp’s entire Cohort brought together.
Register for THREE PD Sessions, one in each block.
Choose one of these inventive and creative prayerful experiences and consider some fresh ways of approaching prayer. Engage in a spiritual, prayerful and thoughtful experience modelling examples you might “start the day” with your campers or peers.
Register for TWO Eat•Pray•Invest sessions, one for Tuesday and one for Wednesday.
Evening Experiences are opportunities for Fellows and Liaisons to dive deeper into skill development, explore goals for the summer ahead, and to consider their own Jewish life and leadership beyond camp more broadly.
Register for TWO Evening Experiences, one for Monday and one for Tuesday.
