    SCP 166: Running an Alumni Program with Jeff Bradshaw

    Chris is busy wrapping up camp as we head to the end of the season. So, Curt has decided to replay an edited episode from his old podcast Rec Heads and Camp Nerds where he and Patti McDonald interview the amazing Jeff Bradshaw of Camp Wenonah. This is a GREAT episode for any camp or organization looking to start or improve an alumni program. 

    If you'd like to reach out to Jeff Bradshaw, email him at jeff@campwenonah.com.

Excellent, thoughtful resources

Curt and Chris have one goal - to make you better at running a camp, be it overnight or day. These guys bring a wealth of knowledge and provide guests and resources that are thought provoking and timely. Their passion in this field is evident and their podcast is incredible.

Great content!

I’ve gotten a lot out of this podcast! Appreciate the content, opinions, and the well balanced conversation and format!

Can’t go without

Fantastic content. As a camp director lacking ideas for creative programming, these guys are a lifesaver. These guys are the real deal in the trenches with us.
