Welcome to the Summer Camp Leadership blog. For those of us who lead summer camps, making a positive difference in the lives of young people is our passion. Turning that passion into a reality, however, takes more than the ability to lead songs, teach archery or plan craft projects. Creating camp experiences that truly transform lives takes leadership. Leadership that creates a vision for the future, leadership that inspires and engages others, leadership that remains focused and stays the course. My hope is through this blog you'll find ideas, inspiration and tools to help you be a great summer camp leader.

When Things Get Tough

As a leader we'll all run into tough times. Not matter how well we plan, organize and lead, things happen. Circumstances change and unexpected problems occur. How do we endure through these tough times? Inc.com columnist Amy Morin suggest four things to tell yourself when dealing with tough times.

1. This has happened before.
2. Failure is the path to success.
3. This won't matter nearly as much in five years.
4. I live according to my values.
