Merrill, NY (PRWEB) May 03, 2013
As a camp community, Camp Chateaugay is determined to give every single child a summer home to live and grow without the fear of being bullied. For this purpose and for the eighth consecutive season, Chateaugay welcomes the expertise of Dr. Joel Haber for its Head Staff and General Staff training. Dr. Haber, known as “The Bully Coach”, is a renowned speaker and author focused on bullying prevention and solutions who has over 20 years of experience working in the field. He has written two books on the subject; “Bullyproof Your Child For Life” and his newest release, “The Risilience Formula.”
Bullying is the act of coercion or force used to threaten or oppress another person. It can take the form of verbal harassment, physical violence and/or emotional intimidation.
Camp Chateaugay is dedicated to creating an environment for children that allows for emotional, physical and mental safety. With that in mind, Chateaugay's staff is trained to be aware of the surroundings and to pay close attention to the interactions of the campers amongst one another. Dr. Joel Haber is a crucial part of this training, working first with the Head Staff, and then with the whole of staff, helping to guide us in the direction of identifying bullying situations and giving useful suggestions of how to deal with them. Building a strong cabin and camp community is the first step in creating an environment that is bully-free. Camp Chateaugay works hard to establish this community, beginning with developing a cohesive and well-trained family of staff and then extending and integrating the campers into that family environment. Dr. Joel Haber continues his work this NY summer camp as part of the goal to strive for a bully free environment for your child.
