Staff Training

SMA Staff Training

Each summer before the campers arrive we hold a 10 day staff training in order to prepare for the opening day of camp. There are two main goals of staff training:

  1. One is to teach skills, safety protocols and to get everyone on the same page about how we do things at SMA.
  2. The second is to work to build our “All Star Staff Team” into a cohesive unit that plays hard and works hard together while looking out for one another as well.

Specific things we do at our staff training include:

  • CPR & First Aid Certification
  • Overnight Camping Trip
  • Hands-on Training for Specific Activities
  • Conflict Resolution Workshop
  • Team Building Games
  • SMA Safety Protocols

At Stone Mountain Adventures we feel it is essential that we have a terrific staff team each summer. Having 10 days together before the campers arrive gives us the opportunity to get to know one another and truly be prepared for the opening day of camp.
