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.
