As a member of LICAPS, Rolling River is excited to partner with Gratz College this summer to offer a supplemental 3 credit, online college course for hired counselors called “The Fundamentals of Informal Education in a Summer Camp Setting”. It’s a great way to earn elective credits while also receiving a salary and tips.
Course Description: As the demands and pressures of teaching young people continue to put increased scrutiny on schools and teachers, there may be unfulfilled possibilities for informal education programs to supplement traditional classroom experiences. The course work will draw from both not-for-profit and for-profit camp settings to unpack the potentials of informal education to improve learning for students across the United States. The course will be a virtual learning experience, supported by videos, articles, books, case studies, virtual and live discussions.
