A Rewarding Week of Staff Training!

Conor Millard, July 1, 2019

5 days of staff training have come and gone! Are you ready for summer? We certainly are!

The week began with a slow trickle of enthusiastic new faces and by Friday evening the chirping of new and returning staff echoed across the 4-H woodlands.

The sound of training was the sound of conversation, storytelling and laughter. Of all the camps that Primitive Pursuits will host this season, Staff Training is the first.

We come together during this time to prepare. We come together to bring out the best in each other. That’s what we love about Staff Training week and that’s what we hope to do with all of you this summer!
