The Cabin Path

Posted on December 10, 2012 by CCA Communications Committee

The Cabin Path: Leadership Lessons Learned at Camp inspires camp directors and counsellors to think more consciously about the leadership lessons learned every day on the job at camp.

Through stories, analysis and contributions from a variety of camp staff, Jay Gilbert, in a personal style, describes how camp teaches young people to be the best leaders they can be.  It covers the entire camp experience from a broad perspective including sections on: Introduction and the Camp Environment; The Counsellor and Camp Staff; Support, Community and Appreciation, and Tactics and Everyday Responsibilities.

The book is written for camp directors to remind them of their role in creating the next generation of leaders and for camp counsellors as they strive to make their next summer even better than the last.

During its April 2012 launch, The Cabin Path set the record for units sold by a local author in the Chapters/Indigo store where the launch took place. “This is the book that can help us all take professional development to the next level,” said  Scott Arizala, Founder/CEO of The Camp Counsellor and author of S’more than Camp.
