We are very excited to announce that Camp Champions will sponsor a series of youth development seminars this November featuring renowned child psychologist Michael Thompson. Dr. Thompson is the author of New York Times bestseller Raising Cain: Protecting the Emotional Life of Boys and is recognized as an international expert and speaker on children’s social and emotional growth. Through his work, Dr. Thompson has also become an unapologetic admirer of summer camps!

In May Dr. Thompson released his newest book, Homesick and Happy, which details how time spent away from parents and specifically time spent at summer camps is a developmentally critical step for building confidence, independence, and maturity.  Dr. Thompson will speak about his research on summer camps and the important role that he believes summer camps play in raising happy and successful young people. We would like to invite our camp families in Austin, Dallas, and Houston to attend and to bring friends who may be interested in learning about how their kids may benefit from attending summer camp!

These are the dates and locations, also available on our website.

Sunday, November 11th. @ the Dell JCC from 4-5pm.
Monday, November 12th. @ the Episcopal School of Dallas from 7-8pm.
Tuesday, November 13th. @ the Kinkaid School from 7-8pm.

For those in Dallas, Steve Sir will also be speaking on Tuesday, October 23rd at the Parish Episcopal School (Pearlman Center) from 6:30-7:30 on “creating advantage through summer camp” by building skills critical for success in the 21st century. We would love to have you and your friends here as well!
