The practicum is a culminating experience that provides extensive, hands-on opportunities for the student to reflect on his or her practice through the lens of acquired theories. Each student will craft a learning goal that will culminate in a project that demonstrates mastery of multiple topics studied in the program. The practicum experience provides the student with growth and development opportunities in their camp setting with mentoring from a qualified camp professional. The practicum is 6 credits divided into two sessions.
Each student will craft a proposal that will culminate in a project demonstrating mastery of multiple topics studied in the program. This written proposal will be submitted prior to implementation of the programs students develop for their camp community.
Students will implement their approved proposals at camp and document the experience through journaling in a weekly log, completing a final paper, and offering a presentation demonstrating the results of their projects.
