The Power Dynamics of Relationships When Working with Kids / at Camp


The inherent power structures in the world and at camp influence all of our interactions. In the hypercharged camp environment, relationships of all forms are influenced by these power structures, the boundaries and the blurring of boundaries that happens in camp’s close quarters. We have the responsibility of role modeling and inspiring appropriate relationships, boundaries, and healthy space for everybody in our communities. This session will include ways to address, build, and discuss these safe spaces with your campers and other staff members.
