Camp Staff Trainings and Workshop Presentations

Our ad staff loved having you here. They learned so much. I was so impressed by your knowledge and perspective…and humor. Your style is such a perfect fit for the culture at Minikani…it felt very natural. We will have a better summer because of your influence.
— Tom Cramer, Camp Minikani Director (Milwaukee YMCA)

How It Works

1. Think about what your wants and needs, ideal dates and budget

2. Call me at (313) 506-2891 or email me at sarah@kurtzmckinnoncreative.com and we'll talk about the options

3. To finalize, we'll lock in the dates, write up a contract and start planning the curriculum

4. We will have 2 to 3 check-ins before the training to tailor it to your exact needs

5. I'll show up at our arranged time & we'll have a blast!
