Staff Appreciation Guide

Type: Guide, Reports
Topics: Reports

The Staff Appreciation Guide is a resource, developed by SAC, in response to data from the 2023 Staff Satisfaction Insights Survey, which stated only about two-thirds of staff felt appreciated and valued for their work at camp in 2022. These professionals suggest that showing appreciation for staff members, whether a small or large gesture, throughout the summer is an efficient tool to increase staff retention and overall satisfaction with the staff experience. The guide presents ten approaches with supplementary examples that year-round camp professionals and summer leadership can utilize to express gratitude for the efforts exhibited by their staff members.
