Benito and Margarita, our special Training guests, came to explain the rules on the first day:
Showing how we are all connected and welcoming everyone to training:
Construcuting a map of camp (with a little bit of metaphor used for the borders)
Teaching the importance of providing the opportunity to choose our challenges:
Praciticing positive labeling
Skinned and bruised knees and a swollen ankle that I didn't even notice until I went to bed the first night. Adrenaline is quick the pain killer.
Gettin groovy for Stage Night
Super Staff! Every staff receive special recongition during the week, just like we do with the kiddos.
Our pool - I know. I know.
A skit mocking me, the director and one of our field consultants. The girl impersonating me nailed the way I wave my hands like there is a fire every time a talk, how I am overly exciting about EVERYTHING, and how I have a ridiculous accent and choose the wrong word in Spanish about 70% of the time. The girl was DEAD ON. Fuuniest thing I've seen in a long time.
Leadership Team late night meeting marathons everynight, planning for the next day
Ne'e Guyguy, the Guarani word for soft talk... a nightly meeting with our groups to have a chance to talk quietly around a candle.
The last day: the group awarded us a huge 'SUPER LEADER' award... so precious.
Our Tape Jerovia team
We did it we did it!!! Our leadership team realizing that TRAINING WAS COMPLETE!
Now... a day of much earned rest.
